There are a few programs floating around that can convert pictures into cross stitch patterns.  I've never used them before, but they should be fine if there aren't a ton of subtle color changes:

Hope that helps! Smiley

I just answered a similar question here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=383815.msg4547258#msg4547258

There are a bunch of free programs on the internet that will convert a picture into a cross stitch pattern.  I've never used them before, but they might be a good option if you're looking to save money.  I've paid people on etsy with software to make really big patterns for me, only because I want to make sure it doesn't come out too dark/light/off.  Let me know if you want to know the name of the seller I used.  I think I only paid a few dollars and the lady was really nice Smiley

Kcraft, I don't know anything about True Blood, but have you tried using any of the websites I linked to above, maybe with a lightened/increased contrast version of a picture?

If you don't have any photo editing software, I've had an etsy seller make patterns for me.  I think I paid ~$10 for it?  PM me if you want her information.  I just wanted to make sure the pattern was good before spending months on a piece Smiley

shiny objectitis, glad to help!  Post pictures when you finish it!

I need help. But first let me explain everything...

I'm trying to make a quilt wall hanging with my grandmother. I'm designing, and trying to draw up the images we need. The subject is Japan, since I once lived there and loved it so much. My first son was born in Japan too.

The size is going to be about the size of a baby's crib comforter, center is going to be a Pagoda and Mt. Fuji and Cherry blossoms. I'm going to crochet the cherry blossoms, the accents on the pagoda, and the snow cap and valleys on Mt. Fuji. Then on the border my grandmother is going to embroidery different things that are specific to Japan - ie: geisha, sumo wrestling, sushi, chopsticks, yen, happy cat or Manekio Neko, lanterns, cherry blossoms, bonsai, temple guardian dogs/lions, Koinobori - flying carp windsocks that are hung up for children's/boys day in Japan...you get the idea.

My problem is I really want to do an embroidery of the Tokyo Tower but I am having no luck finding an image that we can use to embroidery. So I was wondering if anyone has come across one or could help us somehow.

I would greatly appreciate any and all help, we are trying to do this project quickly because my grandma's eyes aren't as good as they use to be...And this is something I really want her to help me do so I can pass it down to my children, her great grandchildren.


Another project I'm asking her to help me with is an embroidery of Koinobori for each my two sons. Also I haven't had much luck finding any good artistic Koinobori designs, any help here would be greatly appreciated also.


And I think she is thinking about doing a Geisha girl embroidery quilt since I found so many wonderful geisha girl designs...lol.

As a little girl, Grandmother taught me to embroidery, I taught myself how to be creative. Now I am teaching myself to knit and crochet - with her guidance...
