QR code generator

I just thought I'd post a link to a QR code generator site, in case you fancy stitching one of your own. Fun stuff!

You can select the content of the code: URL, text, phone number or even an SMS text message.

Right, get out your fancy-pants phones and tell me what that code up there says..! ;-)

  1. Thanks for the link! I was just looking at your previous post and thinking about making my own to code some secret message in it ;) I just wonder if a phone can really read the code of it is stitched?

  2. The phone should be able to read the code, mine could read the one in the previous post.

    I guess you just have to make the stitching tidy enough for the phone to pick it up.

  7. Woot! I did this! I made a QR code that said Welcome to (so-and-so's) House. Embroidered it by hand and it worked perfectly!
    I used a cream colored background and a medium blue thread. i read that as long as the background is light colored and the blocks are dark (have contrast.) it should work.
    I was a bit nervous while stitching. I was afraid that it wouldn't work because of the colors or my terrible stitch style, and i wouldn't know until i was done. however, it was awesome and it worked. yay! Christmas gift #1 done.

    Did you use cross-stitch or some other stitch? I'm trying o figure out how I would do this.
