I went to a free QR code generator site & made a little message in QR code. I then printed it off, attached it to a nice bit of card stock & am just cross stitching right over it! I’m planning on tearing the paper right off after — we’ll see how that works… :
Here’s a preview of it so far:
I had to create a grid over the QR code image using a ruler & pen.
I carefully remove the paper…
Voila! A beautiful QR code cross stitch! 😀
I think that next time I’ll try printing on something that doesn’t leave anything behind once removed, like tissue paper. There are still little bits of paper poking out from beneath the threads. I can get most of them, but it’ll take some time. Gah!
