Relax with the original pixel art!

Cross Stitch Maker lets you draw realistic cross stitch on your iPhone or iPad! Create beautiful projects easily by typing a message and using the built-in library of borders and clipart. Or take some time to create your own drawing using the 100+ thread colors and six stitch types.

You won't believe how realistic your finished picture is! It looks just like a real framed cross stitch hanging on a wall. You can even print your design on mugs, shirts, stamps, cards, and more! The "Share" tool lets you easily send your creation to friends. A great way to send Birthday, Mother's Day, and other holiday greetings. Your friends might even think it's a real cross stitch!

A Brand New Update!

I was very surprised to see that this app got a new update. I've owned it for a long time. I deleted it back when because I found it tedious to use. I like the new update. However, it still needs some basic improvements. The frame hides the edges of the canvas and my work gets cut off at the edges making the artwork uneven on the parts where the stitches get cut off. I think it would be helpful if there was a way to move the canvas, or move the frame out of the way. Or, maybe a zoom feature would help? Also, you have to have a very steady hand to create even lines - that's the part that I found tedious the most. Other than that, I think the app has a lot of potential. I like the Zazzle thing, but I am not understanding why there is such a close link with the website when I haven't authorized it. I guess I'll have to check that out further. Thanks for the update. I'm very happy that the app is still alive. Good work!

Very nice!

I love the look of my completed project! It looks so much like a real cross stitch project! The app is easy to use, not too complicated. So it's perfect for me except it would be nice to be able to do a bigger project on my iPad mini. That and one little button for a super small stitch in case of a split. I'm so glad I found this app and thank the developer so much!!

Update: Thank you for the update! I haven't checked it out fully but very much appreciate the refresh. Can't wait to try it out. I still love this app!!! It's just a fun way to pass the time and create little pieces of stitchery. One change that will be nice is the ability to put on Zazzle products without the fabric background. That will be nice. Thank you again!!!

A Must Have!!

I never pay for apps - but when I saw this one I decided to because the apps that are similar interrupt you with ads which is super annoying. And the quality of those apps are just not as good. This app, however is also the only one that offers various types of stitches and diverse colors! I love it so much. I would recommend it for anyone who is a visual person and likes to lay out their design before they stitch it! Thank you for creating such a wonderful app!
