Splitting

For the pocket detail, we wanted to have a piece of EL that split in two, this is possible but a little trickier than just a single piece. Make sure you're comfortable with soldering to EL wire since you'll need to solder to two ends, thus doubling the difficulty

You'll want to cut the first piece a little long, again, and then solder two pieces of ribbon or other thin stranded wire to both the core and corona wires. Each one can go to another EL piece.

This time, start sewing from the junction, so that its centered.
