Step 1: Choose your best photo

Start by finding your most photogenic snapshot. Do you have a cute picture of your cat looking like a model on the red carpet? Perfect! Make sure that photo is on your computer or phone and ready to use. Ready? Let’s move to the next step.

Step 2: Upload your photo to our website

Click on the big, can't-miss button "Upload Your Photo". Choose your favorite photo from your computer and upload it. Now the fun part begins!

Step 3: Play with the settings

This is the moment to embrace your inner artist. On the website, you can adjust various settings to perfect your embroidery pattern:

  • Dimensions: Choose how big you want your embroidery to be. Larger means more detail, but also more work. So don't be too ambitious... unless you’re up for the challenge!
  • Embroidery Thread Brand: Choose your favorite brand of embroidery thread! If you don’t have a favorite brand yet, go for DMC thread. These are available everywhere.
  • Color Palette: Select the number of colors you want to use. More colors give a more detailed result, but you don't need every shade of the rainbow. Choose wisely!

Step 4: Preview and adjust

Now you’ll see a preview of your embroidery pattern. It’s already starting to look like your photo, right? If something isn’t quite right, adjust the settings until you’re happy. This is like Photoshop, but for embroiderers!

Step 5: Place your order

Happy with how it looks? Great! Place your order now! Don’t worry, you don’t have to wait. You can download your embroidery pattern immediately after payment.

Step 6: Download the pattern

Download your pattern right away! This pattern includes a grid with colors and symbols that match the stitches and colors of the thread. You are now officially ready to start embroidering.

Step 7: Time to embroider!

Print out your pattern, grab your embroidery fabric, thread, and needle, and start embroidering. Don’t forget to take breaks occasionally. Even the greatest artists need to drink a cup of tea and rest their eyes once in a while.

Bonus tips for success
