We modified an instructables.com tutorial to create four sensors from neoprene, conductive fabric, fusible interfacing, and thin foam with a small hole cut in the center.

"Fritzing is an open-source initiative to support designers, artists, researchers and hobbyists to work creatively with interactive electronics."

The magic combo of your .pde code file and your .fz fritizing files will provide you with sharable documentation for your reference in the future and as inspiration for others.
