Welcome to the Jungle



The devil makes work for idle hands, apparently. So, y'know, cross stitch. Saving souls since the Middle Ages. There are a lot of cool designs out there via Subversive Cross Stitch and similar, but given the small people I live with, this kind of design is still out for a few years:



A great housewarming gift for childfree couples though, eh?

My version is a cross-stitched QR code - those unique 'fingerprint' designs that marketing departments stick on posters etc in the vain hope that consumers will zap them with a smartphone app and 'engage with further content' from the brand. Anyway, you can make your own for free using a QR code generator, and link it to whatever URL you fancy. If you print the resulting code out on A4 paper and draw a grid over the top, you have an automatic cross stitch pattern. 

I picked the YouTube link to Welcome to the Jungle by Guns n' Roses. 
Not very complicated really, but essential to keep count properly, as any mistake means it won't work and it will be a right arse to work out where you went wrong! 

Being very childishly pleased with myself when it worked, I went on to make one for the kitchen which takes you to this classic line from Withnail and I



It's by the wine rack of course.

  10. Those are fun! Good choice of links, too. Though I have no idea how my phone is meant to use the codes. Poor marketeers, wasting their time with me.

  11. Cross stitch QR code? Genius!

    Oh and good choice with the lovely Mr Rose. I thought you were being clever as Banksy added a QR code to his latest piece about the violence in the Jungle at Calais but maybe I'm overthinking an you just love Axel too! x
