A Cross-Stitchers Utility Belt!
As well as our main image-to-pattern conversion tool we’re also developing a number of tools, utilities & calculators to help you with your cross-stitching.
Ever run out of a thread color with a few stitches of it still to go? Maybe you’re stitching a sampler and don’t need the exact color specified, just something close?
Even if you have a DMC color card, matching up the closest thread can be a challenge and time-consuming so we’ve taken some of the technology we developed for our pattern making app and made it available as a convenient nearest thread color matching tool.

Have you seen an accurate mockup of the pattern you are about to start? If not, STOP! Don’t commit time, energy and materials to what could be a long-term project without checking first that the pattern is of a high enough quality.
Want to make sure you buy the correct size fabric or need to convert a pattern from one fabric stitch count to another?
Use this easy-to-use calculator to make sure you buy the right piece!

Want to make sure you buy the correct number of skeins for your pattern? Use this handy calculator to work out how many to buy - especially useful if you’re stitching on a different fabric size to the one your pattern might show skein counts for.

Want to make sure you don’t over-commit to a tempting but large pattern? Use this handy calculator to estimate how long it will take based on how fast you stitch based off the time it took to complete a previous piece.
Take a reality check and don’t over-commit - that 999 x 725 pattern should look impressive but there’s rarely a need to go that large to get a very detailed and impressive piece and the materials for it could be expensive, especially if you end up getting discouraged and abandoning it.
