- Using conductive thread, sew the positive wire. Make sure you are sewing the LEDs on the inside of the figurine. In the diagram below, it's shown as "+" signs.
- Once your wire is below the battery access slit, attach the battery holder by sewing through the copper positive terminal.
- Next, sew the short negative wire, shown as "-" signs and highlighted in the diagram. Begin at the copper negative terminal on the battery holder. The end of the wire should be on the front side of the figurine (opposite the battery holder).
- Now, sew one part of the metal snap using the conductive thread. This will serve as the switch for the jawa's eyes.
- You will now sew the other negative wire, also shown as "-" signs and highlighted. Begin by sewing the other part of the metal snap switch to the flap on the front of the figurine.
- Insert the battery into the holder and test the LEDs to make sure that your circuit is complete and not shorting out.
- If the eyes light up, sew most of the jawa body closed around the outer edges of the figurine. Leave a small opening so that you can stuff the figurine with polyfill.
- Stuff the jawa and sew the small opening closed.
- Put the robe on your jawa. Tape the black construction paper around it's body to hold the robe closed and serve as his equipment belt.
“I get this feeling that something bad is happening, like I’m going to come home and find our building burned to the ground or white supremacists chasing my family around with baseball bats, or that this bus is going to crash into the bodega on Clark Street. My head won’t stop with this shit. I know it’s all anxiety. It pummels my brain with thoughts and images of horrible things going down. What is the matter with me? I’m sick of talking about myself. I’m sick of thinking about myself. I’m sick of myself.”
Filled with dark and sardonic humor, Permanent Record will have you laughing out loud. Badi/Bud’s first person narration clearly depicts the depression and anxiety experienced by teens trying to find their place in the world. His keen and witty observations of other characters and situations provide a realistic backdrop for the story and mystery that unfolds. For those that loved The Perks of Being a Wallflower, this is a great read for you. You’ll love outcast Badi/Bud and his determination to battling injustice.
