“This app has allowed me, a person who is NOT an artist, to create patterns and start my own Etsy shop. It’s so easy to use and it exports beautifully. I’ve used this app daily for months now. It’s just so good.”

“I’ve only recently gotten into fiber arts, and cross stitching the most recent. This app has just surprised me each time I open it! I get excited I can use digital patterns, then I see that you can mark where you’ve stitched, THEN I see that you can use different colors- there’s an undo and redo button, AND you can organize by brand the kinds of floss you want for a new pattern? Customizing the new pattern is on a whole other level. Change the fabric count, edit how dark you want it, remove or add colors to the pattern- it’s incredible. I’m super super excited to continue using this! Thank you so much for all your efforts, it definitely shows!”

“I absolutely love this app. I am doing a portrait of my parents and it is so special to be able to take an image and easily transfer it to a pattern. The app is so easy and convenient to use! Absolutely worth it!”

“I purchased the full version of loomerly, and considered trying to use that for cross stitch too, since the apps are similar. But I decided to go for the full version of this too, since the developer seems super responsive to requests and is constantly making improvements. This is so much easier than trying to use Photoshop to make cross stitch designs from photos! It is easy to create your own patterns based on a picture that you trace, or your own imagination. Lots of colors to choose from- Palette’s include all of DMC that I know of, plus Anchor, The Gentle Art, Weeks Dye Works, plus some others, generic colors, and the option to make and edit your own palette, which I find really helpful. I love the option to rotate and mirror designs, and you can add half-stitches and backstitch outlines, too! There is an eyedropper tool, erase, paint, switch one color for another, fill, cut, copy, mirror, rotate text, and add insert/ copy to clipboard tool, so you can copy part or all of another pattern to the one you are using. You can preview the pattern using symbols or a more realistic thread look. You can also track your progress stitching your pattern, either as a whole or in sections. I also have the Markup R-Xp app (which is more for tracking your progress) but may end up using Stitchly instead because of the more intuitive, user-friendly interface and the fact that you can view both the symbols and colors of each stitch in the design at the same time.”

“Stitchly is a really useful tool for creating and tracking cross stitch patterns. It’s pretty much the only thing I use—even if I get a pattern in a different format, I’ll usually copy it into Stitchly before starting to work on it.”

“App works great! Easy to create patterns and then use while stitching. I asked the developer if there was a certain feature. There was not but it was added to the next update!! How amazing is that?! Great app great customer service! 100% recommend.”

“The amount of control it lets you have is amazing: and if you just want to pop a picture in and get a quick pattern, it’s just as easy. I highly recommend this app.”

“I’ve been using this app for a couple of weeks now and it’s amazing! Very powerful and easy to use. The developer is kind and open to feedback, with super quick responses to my questions. Thank you for this wonderful app! I’m having a blast designing cross stitch projects for myself :)”

“Exactly what I needed to turn pictures into cross stitch patterns. This is great! Reasonable one time payment too instead of a subscription.”

“I’ve made several patterns with Stitchly thus far. I’m still relatively new to cross stitching, so I can’t compare it to lots of other xstitch programs, but it has served its purpose well. I’ve been using art/design/quilting software for decades and Stitchly is one of the most user-friendly apps I’ve used. It doesn’t overcomplicate things. It’s so relaxing to chill on the couch and create patterns even if I end up not stitching them.”

“Super easy to use. Lots of options on tweaking your patterns. For me the adding of symbols for each color is where it’s at. Obsessed with this app.”

“I’ve only been using this app for a short while for creating cross stitch designs from scratch, and it’s turned out to be an outstanding purchase! Very easy to learn, flexible toolset and decent interface. I’ll probably use it for pixel art creation too, like others have stated.”

“This app is exactly what I’ve been looking for! I had been eyeing a few desktop apps but this app provides all the features I need in a cheaper, convenient, portable app- even better! I love how easy it is to make patterns and export them, even including the number of skeins needed in the export is so helpful.”

“I’ve tried a bunch of cross stitch pattern apps and programs, including some fairly expensive desktop programs and I always come back to Stitchly. I love the interface, it’s easy to get started and very intuitive. The patterns it outputs look very professional and are easy to read with several options for formatting. It currently has a size limit of 300×300 stitches which is fine for most projects I work on. I usually either work directly in the app designing freehand, convert an image in the app using its conversation tools, or if it’s something complicated I do the design in photoshop and import the .png into Stitchly to make the file into a pattern and make thread color choices. All of those options work great. I’m so impressed with this app and frequently recommend it to people looking to start designing their own patterns. I’d give it more stars if I could.”

“The best app for anyone that likes cross stitch. I’ve saved so much money on buying patterns and it’s also so much fun to be able to design my own. Love it. I never spend money on apps but this one was definitely worth it.”

“I can’t overstate my love for Stitchly. Every time I don’t see it on a top 10 softwares for cross stitch I’m shook. I‘ve been making and selling patterns for 5 years and have tried 3 other programs but Stitchly’s aesthetics, simplicity, and constant feature updates make it my number one favorite of all time.”

“I’ve been using this app for a couple months to make and/or mark off patterns that I’ve bought and it’s fantastic! It’s easy to use, especially since I’m new to the iPad world. So many color choices and love that the tabs all have info of what they do before you use them, unlike some apps that I tried. The customer service is just as amazing. I was having an issue with zooming in on one of my patterns and shortly after contacting customer service about it they were on the case and fixing the issue! Definitely love this app and the people behind it!”

“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed using this app to create many cross stitch patterns. I emailed the app creator about features that would be helpful for users, they responded promptly and made the suggested changes!! Definitely above and beyond anything I’ve ever experienced in terms of customer care. Thank you for this wonderful app!”

“I never write reviews!!! But seriously this app is amazing! I love how easy it is to make my own patterns and upload photos. It does take a little time and effort to get used to, but seriously I love it. The only issue I would say is when you got to export it makes even small patterns take up an entire printing page.”

“I am using this app with an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil, and I love the functionality between the two. You can start from a photograph or from scratch and it has all the tools you might need like DMC or anchor thread colors, fabric color, fabric count, design size, and formatting for the final pattern in case you want to print or send it to others. The developer was very receptive to my suggestions on things I felt were missing and included them in a subsequent update.”

“I’ve tried several of the more popular cross-stitch apps but none of them can beat this one. It has a clean and easy to use design, has versatile and helpful tools and functions to create your own cross-stitch patterns and work on them, and best of all it’s a very cheap one time purchase instead of a recurring subscription. I would highly recommend it to make your own cross-stitch patterns if that’s what you’re looking for. This app deserves more popularity.”

“This Is the best pattern maker I’ve used so far. My favorite feature is the stitch count feature. Makes my life so much easier. No more counting stitches and forgetting them two seconds later.”

“Tried a few of these apps and this really is the best. Easy to use, full of editing options and a one off payment rather than per pattern. Great response to feedback requests also. Recommended.”

“This is the best pattern maker I’ve tried. I love that I can make custom pallets depending on the colors I have on hand, and that I can swap colors manually if I want. Also, the image adjustment sliders (brightness, contrast, etc.) are super helpful to achieve the exact look I want.”
