Lullaby Pillowcase Finished

Whew, I actually finished the Lullaby Pillowcase one week before the deadline for QR-3D. I really pleased with out it turned out.

The QR code was outlined with a simple backstitch and then filled in with about a billion french knots. I was a little nervous that it wouldn’t be exact enough to work, but if you scan it with your smart phone it’ll play Brahms’ Lullaby for you.

The sheep are also mainly made with french knots and a few straight stitches. (I’ll post a little tutorial later this week on how to make them, because they are just too darn cute in my opinion.)

Part of this project was about creating textile QR code that are also 3D. That is why I went with the french knots, they really lift the embroidery off the fabric.

Now, I just have to wait and find out if it gets picked for the exhibition at Cornerhouse in Manchester, UK. Fingers-crossed for me.

    • I am just blown away by this project and can’t get over how the art of embroidery meets technology… brilliant! I stumbled upon your work via a link at craftgawker and was wondering if I might write a post about this piece on my blog? You can see my blog at I am an mixed media hand embroidery artist in the Boston, MA area and would love to tell others about your work.
