My very first PDF project – a Cross Stitch QR Code! Check it out!
Why did I make this project? I’m fascinated with how “handmade” and “tech” are converging. And any project that links the two intrigues me. I also wanted to start affixing these onto items I make, so that folks can get a behind-the-scenes look at how it was made.
Why would you want to use a QR code anyway? This KISSMetrics article and this Hubspot article have some pretty good information. Just think about it, wouldn’t it be nice to slap one of these onto something you make? It can serve as a digital signature of sorts, by leading folks to your blog post, YouTube video, Twitter page, etc.
The finished cross stitch is just over 2 inches square and it took me probably around an hour to complete. Hard to estimate the time, though, since I worked on it in tiny spurts here and there. It was actually pretty fun to make.
Here’s a shot of my WIP (work in progress) on a recent Oregon road trip with my parents.
Here’s another WIP shot. My cat Jasmine thinks the whole thing is for her pleasure and fun 🙂
And don’t forget to link up your project online – I’d love to see what you make!
