Title: Ribbon woven QR code (picture overload)
Post by: Trekky on July 23, 2011 12:37:47 PM
Hello

I saw this QR-3D (http://qr-3d.weebly.com/) project, and wondered if a simple ribbon weave would work.  Here are some photos of my progress.










Interestingly, the actual ribbon code itself doesn't work, but a photo of it does - this must hide any imperfections.  Although the actual weave was quite simple, it was hard work, as your eyes can go a little funny doing it!  :D

you guys are big teases!  I'm so 2005... My phone is so basic, no ability to scan them funky codes.   So tell me, where does it go?

Very cool, but my phone is charging across the room so I'll have to look for the message later.

Love this! I am always thinking of different ways to recreate things, and this is so cool :D

What are you going to do with the finished piece?

....Thanks for the link, it's great! :)

Thank you for your comments!!!!  Everytime it actually works I am really impressed - the magic of technology!  For those without a barcode reader thingy on their phone the QR code goes to my blog (http://craftytrekky.blogspot.com/) (very unimaginative I know!).  The QR-3D (http://qr-3d.weebly.com/) people are arranging an exhibition, so fingers crossed it will get picked.

If you are interested there are some amazing QR-3D codes in their flickr pool (http://www.flickr.com/groups/[email protected]/).

Thanks again  :)

I really like the combo of craft and technology. I'm sure my phone can scan them, but I've never tried. Perhaps I should.

That's a really cool idea!

And I agree with the people above. That piece would make lovely wall art indeed :).
Great job, Trekky. Thanks for sharing :).

I have a crappy pay by the minute phone so I can't test it out. This is really cool. How do you make the codes? I think I would like to make some wall art.

To make a QR code you just put the website in here (http://qrcode.kaywa.com/).  I don't know how it actually works though!

This is so cool.  I totally plan on using this in someone's Christmas gift, though I'd probably lean toward a cross-stitched version.  Or perler bead version?


Title: Re: Ribbon woven QR code (picture overload)
Post by: Trekky on July 30, 2011 10:17:43 AM
perler bead sounds great.  There are some cross stitch ones on the QR-3D flickr group (http://www.flickr.com/groups/[email protected]/) that might inspire you!

I am really impressed by this. I just took a class in ribbon weaving so I really want to have a go.  I am curious to know what you did about the places where the ribbon goes over or under several threads at once.  How did you make it stay in place? Did you stick it down with fabric glue or what?


Title: Re: Ribbon woven QR code (picture overload)
Post by: Trekky on August 02, 2011 01:10:11 PM
elderflower - when I did it, I had the edges stuck to a board with masking tape to keep it still.  Once it was finished I carefully (very very carefully) pulled it off the board (with tape still attached) & sewing machined round the edges. It means that there is a still a bit of movement in the piece, but hopefully by securing the start & the end of each strip it won't fall apart.

Hope that makes sense?  ;)

Many thanks for the construction info.  I am defintely going to have a go.  I'll let you know how it turns out.

I made one from paper strips.  Wish I had thought about using ribbon!

You could adhere it to a square of iron-on interfacing....
