I saw these on sparkfun the other day, and wondered who was crazy enough to use them. They are some really neat modules available. The accelerometer components have me intrigued. If you just want a flashy led, why bother with an arduino, but you could do some neat patterns. And I have seen ways of making fabric electrical buttons. You could potentially have a keypad on your sleave. ...

My mind just weird places with that, bad-touch-o-meter? Or a "that's the spot" register?

Okey, back to lurking... At least untill I liberate a sewing machine.

Most of my paintball jerseys were printed using dye sublimination printers. If you looked at the inside of the fabric it looked completely normal. But the outside of it was completely printed in the custom pattern.

Though the poster didn't show the back of the printed fabric, I'm betting this is exactly the same process. My jerseys are done on several different fabrics. It's some really neat stuff. On the back of one of the jerseys I have my name printed, INTO the fabric.

I'll dig up a picture if you're interested.

I had the same problem when I was playing with knitting. You're knitting looser and looser. My solution was to run the yarn around the same two fingers every time so the tension would remain constant. After I started doing that everything went smoothly.
