This project shows how to make an interactive picture of a dandelion. It starts as a yellow flower with LED's for petals then changes into a white dandelion clock, which can be blown on to make the seeds disperse.
It is based on a beautiful artwork by Qi Jie, whose picture was inspired by a single flower design by Jessie Thompson and Zachory Berta. I made mine on fabric and framed it in a tapestry hoop to go on the wall of the Tech and Textiles makerspace in Devon, England, as an example of a beginners project that combines sewing with Arduino.
