The Fabric-Duino is an Arduino clone for fabric. And for connectors one can make small wire eye.

All Paper-Duino version will works as well, but the smaller version is much handier.

Paper PCB


01. Iron the printout on fabric:

02. Cut a Copper-Stripe-Board to the right sice:

03. Solder all parts:

The back should looks like that:

For wireing parts like LEDs and switches one need some Conductive Thread and a needle.


One should first burn the bootloader on the chip: Burning the Bootloader
For uploading a scetch one need a Serial to USB board or: The Arduino as a Serial Adapter
