Custom Patterns

You asked for it, and we heard you!! We will create, especially for you, a custom-made cross stitch pattern from your treasured photo, drawing or any image that you hold dear.  To date, we have designed over 250 custom patterns!

Simply email your image to us at info@xs-collectibles.com and we will design your pattern to your specifications. Your pattern will be delivered to you as a downloadable file that you can print out from your own computer.   * Please note:  We do not create text-based custom patterns.  Send photos or digital images only.

How we do it:

  • We will use the same care and attention to detail that we use when we design our fine art cross stitch patterns.

  • We offer basic color correction, cropping, auto-contrasting, black and white conversion, and other special requests that you may have.

  • Your cross stitch pattern will include only full cross stitches – no backstitches, outlining or complicated stitches.

  • We may use up to 90 colors to create the exquisite details in your pattern, but we try to use the fewest amount of colors possible while maintaining the integrity of the original image.

How to order your Custom-Made pattern:

  • Email your high-quality image to us at info@xs-collectibles.com

  • Specify the size (in inches) that you would prefer your completed pattern to be and the size cloth you prefer to work with (14-ct, 18-ct, etc)

  • When we have a preliminary pattern ready, we will email you a mock-up of what your pattern will look like when stitched

  • If you would like to change anything, email us and we will try to accommodate your changes and send you an updated mock-up.

  • When you are satisfied, we will send you a link to where you can pay for and download your cross stitch pattern.  Snail mail not available for custom-made patterns.

  • Note: We will do our best to accommodate your wishes regarding the requested finished size of your pattern. If we cannot design a quality pattern at the size you request, we’ll make recommendations for how to improve your pattern.

Default Specifications:

  • By default, our cover pages include the finished dimensions for 14, 18 and 24-ct fabric.  Let us know if you use a different size.

  • All patterns are large-print – to make them easy to read. This means that your pattern may contain as many as 40 pages for larger patterns.

  • All patterns are designed using DMC brand floss.  A DMC Shopping List is included with each pattern, to help you collect the floss you'll need.

  • An Instruction sheet is included, clearly showing you how to follow the pages of the chart throughout the booklet.

  • A Care and Cleaning Instruction Sheet is included, courtesy of the DMC Corporation.
