How to machine embroider qr codes

I'm always looking for new, unique things to embroider.  For example, I just tried embroidering QR codes. 

Since QR codes can link to a website, email address, social media account, image, or even text selection, this idea has many applications. Here's how I did it!

1. Create Code

There are many free online generators.

2. Digitize Code

Use embroidery software to do this quickly.

3. Hoop Fabric

Stabilization is VERY important for a good stitch out.

4. Embroider

Watch your machine work!

5. Tidy Design

All jump stitches must be gone for the code to be readable.

6. Check It Out

Scan and make sure it's readable.
