For my second cross stitch project, I decided to do something a bit different to your usual flowers and puppies patterns. (I’m sure that they are very nice, but they’re just not me!)
This image is of one of my favourite logos:
(yes, I have favourite logos, such a business geek!)
I thought that this would be a great pattern to try. Again, using this tutorial, I produced a pattern, and got to stitching!
Some pictures of progress:
The first two colours
Five colours (not in my hair)
The finished item!
Update (April 2011): I still receive a lot of emails about this post, so thought I would update you. I wrote this post 2 years ago, and since then have changed computers because of a major failure on my old one. I no longer have either the PDF files of the patterns, or Photoshop to redo them. I used this tutorial to make it, but if you Google “Cross stitch pattern maker”, there are websites available where you can upload an image and get a pattern in return.
Regarding colours – I bought a bundle of embroidery floss from eBay to get my stash started which I then wound onto bobbins. Any colour numbers have since been lost.
I’m sorry I can’t be more help!
