How to make conductive fabric
Need some conductive fabric in a hurry? You can make your own to test some projects with this quick hand-made solution.
Step 1: Cut strips of fusible fabric
Cut strips of fusible fabric in equally sized pairs. Place the strips on a heat-resistant surface, like a conventional ironing board. Make sure the sides with the glue are facing up.
Place strips of aluminium foil on the glue side of one of the strips of fusible fabric.
Place the second strip of fusible fabric on top of the foil. ***Ensure that the glue sides are both facing inwards & touching the foil. Slide an iron gently over the top of the fusible fabric, just enough for the fabric to glue together.
Step 4: Cut
Use a metal ruler and a rotary cutter or scissors to cut out your conductive shapes.
And ta da! You have your own hand-made conductive fabric. Just connect it with alligator clips to test.
