Hi everyone I hope like me you have all had a fantastic 2014. It has been a busy and exciting year for me. Here is a quick look at my inspirations, creations and important events in pictures.
I have recently cross stitched my ‘StitchKits’ logo to use as my online banner (see above for results:-). Hot of that success I thought it would be fun to Cross-Stitch’ a QRC (Quick Read Code) of my site for use at fairs and such. I am so excited that it worked I thought I should share with you the ‘How To’ and results.
I made mine so that the scanner takes you to www.stitchkitslondon.co.uk but imagine how delighted a social media addict would be to receive one for their face book page or a friend with an Etsy shop? The applications are endless.
All you will need is:
1. Firstly you need to generate a Quick Read Code. Do this on line. If you google ‘Generate QR code’ lots of free sites come up. This site is very easy to use: Generate
Simply type in your URL. Press the generate button then download to your computer and Print.
I used my QC reader to double check the code was correct before I stared stitching.
2. Next with a ruler draw in a grid to create your cross stitch Patten.
3. Now you are ready to get stitching. It is less complicated than it looks. However be super careful to follow the pattern or your scan will take to some where you don’t want to be.
If you have never cross stitched before dont worry it is easy. down load a comprehensive 'How To' guide at WhatDeliaDid
4. To finish of I left a two stitch gap around the QRC and back stitched a boarder all the way around.
