NaArMaMo 2013 - Day 20: QR Code Cross-stitch

On day 19 of naarmamo, I spent some time creating a pattern for a QR code cross-stitch.

I followed (some of) the instructions from here: Instructables: QR Code Cross Stitch.

What I did to create the pattern:
1. Generated a QR code using a QR code generator.
2. Opened it in GIMP and added a grid. The hardest part of creating the pattern was making the squares line up in the grid properly, so I actually ended up creating a new grid and filling each square in it myself. Then I printed it.

It does actually work as a QR code in real life, so I am happy. Although perhaps I should actually put some content on the website that it links to..

Oh excellent, I was thinking of something like this the other week (except I was going along the lines of knitting, and can't knit. Yarnbomb QR codes, I sense a great need).

Very cool and yeah for all sorts of awesome!
