Would love suggestions for a good app that I can upload my own picture into (or artwork) that converts to a pattern for me. I dont even need to print it. I've found several but all make me pick THEIR patterns from the app! Anyone use Crossty? It's supposed to let u upload, but theres no "file" like it says & other way is from Dropbox but its buggy and not working. HELP! I'm DYING to do my picture and need suggestions. Ty everyone! Just found this forum YAY!
(I've been stitching for 45 years)

    Have you tried using the 'free graph paper' under the Stitching Tools tab of this website? I've used it fairly successfully for simple pictures. Nancy Go to top

    Hi Kim, I just ran across your post so not sure if you are still searching for a site so... Here is a site for CS patterns. Very simple to use; I have not stitched anything yet but thought I'd send this info to you. I hope it helps, I sure would like to hear back from you on opinions, thoughts, etc. regarding the pattern if you use it.

    I do have a few patterns I purchased from someone on Ebay and he/she used the same site. I bought four patterns; they are all full stitches only so I am curious. Just need to get time to try it out on my end!

    I hope to have helped and look forward to possibly hearing back from you or someone else who reads this. I'm also new to the forum although I haven't done any stitching for awhile. Take care...
