The process is pretty straight forward. Start with a single stroke line art. Measure the width of the sewing edge and subtract 0.12mm. Set the stroke width of the single stroke art to 0.83mm. Add circles at the end for the wire to poke through. Unit with pathfinder. Cut.
Insert the EL wire through the starting hole, notch the sewing edge so it can fold and sit flat. Insert sewing edge into slot through the entire design. Insert the free edge through the ending hole. Trim excess on the back. Push design flat and use A LOT of glue to hold the sewing edge in place and stiffen the piece.
