My Little Pony Cross stitch?
« on: April 19, 2013, 08:55:14 PM »
I was wondering if there are any MLP Cross stitch patterns out there? I have seen some on ebay, but they were single sheets and so costly to ship.  I there a book anywhere I might be able to buy? Any generation will be ok.

I was wondering this the other day. What you can do is download pcstitch, it's totally free and unlocked, you just can't save your projects. But if you print it out that should be ok. You can then import your images into the program, edit them if you wish, and stitch away! Another option is to draw your own on graph paper :)

I have some on my Pinterest! :D They're supposed to be for perler beads, but they would work perfectly for cross stitch too.

I use a program called KG-chart for making my cross-stitch patterns.
It's completely free and comes with all it's options unlocked.

The only issue it has, is that it's color suggestions are far from perfect. So the color number it suggests and shows as a nice bright blue for instance, might not be half as nice in real life.
The lists it gives you are best used as a guideline.

I purchased a program years ago (more than 10 years ago... LOL), but I've never made a My Little Pony cross-stitch pattern (mostly Hello Kitty and Strawberry Shortcake).  Anyway, I got one of those charts with actual color samples of the floss and use that to choose my colors... that works perfectly!!

I was playing around last night and did some cutie mark patterns. I'm gonna try using actual pony photos of mine to see how they come out. Hopefully it won't be too tricky!!

i have done a few photo patterns on pc stitch (not sure yet on how to share them!! anyone??) but for them to look any good, they need to be at least 100-150 stitches wide, with about 100 colours!!

just curious if it anyone knows if it would be ok copyright wise to use hasbro images?? they are pretty much being altered in the program, by removing some edges and moving some lines. or i was thinking i could trace images from books, alter them a bit, then scan them. i'm not looking to make money or anything, but would like to share whatever patterns i do, cause if i do say so myself, some of them are looking real good on screen!! just gotta get the 3 huge boxes of threads out now to see how the colours will be in the real :biggrin:

edit to add pic of pattern :)

Photo patterns are the worst aren't they? I've tried that once and I admit gave up pretty fast. >>
Even simple artwork often needs a lot of work. That is one incredibly good looking Pinkie Pie pattern though!
I can't wait to see the final result when it's all stitched up!

As for sharing patterns based on hasbro art, I think if you stick to the exact letter of the law it's not allowed, but it's one of those things I do not think they mind, as long as you're not selling them for money. I've seen dozens of stitching patterns being shared based on game and cartoon artwork and such, and I can't recall seeing any cease and desist letters. If you don't try to get rich off them, I think you should be fine.
