Overview

F.I.T. meets M.I.T. in Switch Craft, a book of 20 ultra-modern projects that are equal parts fashion and function. From a skirt that can streak trails of light on the dance floor to a laptop sleeve that’s the first to know when you’re in a Wi-Fi zone, these projects are made for the wired (or wireless) world. Without sacrificing style or being more complicated than sixth-grade science class, they integrate lights, vibration, and sound with sewing to create edgy, attractive accessories and clothing. So if you’re ready to take your crafting not only to another level but another frontier, let Switch Craft bring your handiwork into the twenty-first century.
