Many thanks to the mods for letting me post this, and for creating a link to it.

This post is a note to anyone who is interested that I'm willing to turn your photos into patterns free of charge whenever you want. [there's no time limit or deadline, this is an open offer] - Please send requests! ^_~

Email your pictures to pictures2patterns(at)gmail(dot)com. Please include the following information, if possible

1 - How large would you like the pattern to be?

2 - How many colors? Or a limit to the number of colors you're willing to work with [ie. 50 colors is fine, but 80-100 and I run screaming]

3 - Is DMC thread fine? [DMC is the programs default but there are other options]

4 - What fabric will you be stitching on [really all I need is the stitch count] and please include if you'll be stitching over-1 or over-2.

The pattern will be emailed to you in the form of a PDF, including a list of extra skeins required for the pattern.

Note: Pattern Maker converts pictures to full stitches only.

Above All: Please don't hesitate to ask me to make changes, at most it usually takes me 5 minutes to put together a pattern and it isn't a problem at all for me to remake a pattern.

This is wonderful and very generous of you. I already want to start looking for pictures to do.
10th-Feb-2010 12:19 pm (UTC)
not a problem! send them whenever you like

I'm eyeing a picture that I'd love to turn into a chart. I'll have to think about how large I want it and let you know. :) Thanks so much for offering this service!
23rd-Apr-2010 12:28 pm (UTC)
No problem ^_^ I'm thrilled to be able to do this for you! feel free to send the picture whenever you like. If you're not sure what size you'd like I can show you what it would look like at various sizes to help you decide.

If I send you a picture, you'll also be able to tell me what colors I need?
11th-May-2010 03:01 pm (UTC)
Yes a list of colors along with corresponding symbols is all a part of the pattern that I'll send you. It'll look something like this. Feel free to send me your picture ^_^

Ooooh *O* I'm still looking for an image I'd like to use, but I'll be sure to send you something by the end of this week!

Thanks so much for doing this; the pattern-making service I found in the cross stitch shop near my house is really expensive.

No problem at all, I figured this service would be useful to a lot of people who enjoy stitching store bought patterns [I had a hard time finding patterns I was interested in but I have a surplus of photos] ^_^

Hey, what's your turn around time like at the moment?
23rd-Dec-2010 02:41 pm (UTC)
I've never actually timed but I think 5-15 minutes after I receive the picture I'm usually sending a screenshot of what the pattern would look like, for your approval or so you can request changes ^_^
23rd-Dec-2010 11:37 pm (UTC)
It was more a case of are you snowed under with fancy xmas family stuff? I shall hunt down the picture and send!
23rd-Dec-2010 11:48 pm (UTC)
Ah yes ^_^ nope my Christmas is always quite in comparison to my friends ^_^
24th-Dec-2010 05:11 am (UTC)
Emailng now. How I would love to have that sort of christmas
26th-Jan-2011 09:37 pm (UTC) - Offer still open?
And if yes, do you edit the patterns at all to make them look less silly? Becuase I tried to make one myself and it just look aweful!
26th-Jan-2011 09:40 pm (UTC) - Re: Offer still open?
My offer is always open ^_^

I'm not sure what you mean by editing, go ahead and send me the picture/pictures and I'll see what I can do for you.
9th-Jan-2012 01:08 pm (UTC)
I have a question -- what program do you use?
9th-Jan-2012 02:46 pm (UTC)
Hobbyware Pattern Maker for Cross Stitch
9th-Jan-2012 02:59 pm (UTC)
Oooh thanks! I'll go check it out.
9th-Jan-2012 03:07 pm (UTC)
I should add that I have the standard version and I'm completely thrilled with it ^_^
9th-Jan-2012 03:26 pm (UTC)
Ack it's expensive. Time to save up for it, I guess.
9th-Jan-2012 03:46 pm (UTC)
The price is one of the reasons I've offered to make patterns for people, that and not everyone wants to just stitch photos like me ^_~
12th-Sep-2012 04:46 am (UTC)
Oh gosh thank you so much for this.

Will email my picture once I decide on it. Thanks a lot again! ^0^
23rd-Sep-2012 12:34 pm (UTC)
You're most welcome ^_^ I'm always happy to help!

I've got a really big picture I'd love to get patterned - I've been using my software but it's not coming out how I'd like D: Are you still making patterns? <3
