My flip dot aimed to resemble a dancing small flower. The crochet technique used to cover the coil helps to visualize small petals made of yarn and the flower core made by the bead.
- For my circuit, I used a double coil made by more than 100 turns each.
2. Before crocheting the cover I labeled the wires to be able to, later on, connect it to the batteries to add the current and consequently motion.
Here a close-up of my flower core. I sewed the wires as well as the coil and the bead. very carefully.
Here a clear shoot changing the polarity from one coil to the other making the bead go back and froth.
Takeaways, it was worth it to add so much detail to the coil because it moved very smooth and at the same time very fast.
