    Software description:

    Did you ever had a picture or photo in your hand and thought: it would be nice if I could transfer this into a cross stitch embroidery pattern. With a few clicks in your image editing programm you can easily pixelate images but you quickly come to your limit. For example when it comes to map the colors in the image in order to find the corresponding embroidery threads. And after that telling the printer that you want him to print out a handy, well-recognizable pattern …

    These problems belong to the past, because pixel stitch will assume these steps for you.

    Just upload your favorite picture, determine the number of stitches as well as the number of embroidery colors and let pixel stitch do the work for you. In no time the pattern in PDF format will be provided to you so you can easily download and print it. In the PDF you will find all the infos to get started with your project like informations to the different color numbers and the legend of the embroidery pattern.
