Ever wanted a cross-stitched picture of your face?

Yeah, me too. That's why I made Stitchify!

Stitchify takes a picture you select and turns it into a cross-stitch pattern! It's still a work in progress (accepting PRs here) but it's pretty fun! Select a width in number of squares and a picture and check it in action!


this tool isn't working on the website right now :( it works locally, but there are Issues with some of the third party software that pulls the image and converts it. If you're a developer, you can pull the site and work it locally I guess...?? otherwise, you've just got to wait until I have the executive function and/or the funds to investigate; my sincerest apologies.

A note on privacy:

No picture you submit is saved while generating the cross-stitch pattern. That being said, there are a lot of malicious people out there, and frankly, this is a fun project I do in my free time; I'm not devoting much time or thought to security. I do not recommend that you stitchify anything sensitive, because, you know, the internet!
