Send us a photo of your face, or a friend, relative, pet, or any combination of those. We will have the photo turned into "Cartoonize Me" artwork. Becky J McNeill then turns the "Cartoonize Me" artwork into a "Cross Stitch Me" machine embroidery design. We'll send the finished design back to you for stitching onto shirts, jackets, bags, or anything else you want to put them on.
Take a look at one of our finished designs here and the photo it was made from...

Why Cross Stitch?
Machine cross stitch gives
you the unique ability to convert very intricate photos to machine-ready
cross stitch designs. This happens because a picture
or photo is made up of pixels and every cross stitch is basically a
pixel, thus creating a pixel to pixel ratio and photo-realistic results.
Because there is a place for every stitch, there are no
issues of "excessive density" making the design stitch-able on any type of fabric.
The design will stitch over each side of the X twice, creating
the right density in the design.
Creating the same design in regular machine embroidery requires multiple layers of stitching for detail, highlighting, and shading, causing a stitch-intensive and very dense design with only fair results in terms of picture quality. This is why you usually don’t see a lot of photos created in regular embroidery designs
