I'm a huge fan of e-shirts and electronic apparel, so Kate Hartman's StitchLits LED Sewing Kit immediately caught my eye. She's put together a kit for sale on Etsy that allows anyone to make their own DIY e-shirts at home.

You can use Kate Hartman's StitchLits LED Sewing Kit to illuminate a shirt, purse, bag, jacket, pair of shoes, and anything else you can think of. The kit contains, according to Hartman's Etsy listing, white sewable LEDs, a needle (and needle threader), conductive thread, a coin cell battery, a sewable battery holder, and a snap to serve as a power switch.

If you're still all thumbs, Kate Hartman has posted an Instructables tutorial on how to get started using her StitchLits LED Sewing Kit. Stats for DIY E-Shirts Trending: Older & Chilly
