I just launched tutorials for my most recent soft electronics project. I haven't done a wearables project in a while so I'm really happy with how it turned out! (This version even looks 10x better than what I demoed during my FITC talk too.)

Part 1 is generally for anyone crafty and shows you how to make a slip case for any phone: http://snapguide.com/guides/make-a-slip-case-for-a-phone-part-1/

Part 2 is for the cool nerds with Android phones. Getting NFC tags[2] is easy. And the instant that I read about a magical fabric that blocks near field radio waves[1], I knew I had to make this slip case: http://snapguide.com/guides/enhance-a-phone-slip-case-with-nfc-part-2/

Let me know what you think!

(And more importantly, I hope you make one and send me a picture!)
