NASCAR Logo Charted Design

| 7 Comments


I decided to play around with the Pattern Maker for Cross Stitch software I bought a few years ago. It creates a color chart from an imported photograph or graphic. It can also be used to create images from scratch - much like drawing. I bought it so I could play around with converting some of my photos to charts, but haven't yet gotten around to doing that.

I found a NASCAR logo sticker that probably came with the really cool Tony Stewart Collectible (kinda like a doll) that Bill gave me at Christmas. We don't do gift exchanges, but he saw it in an Oakland truck stop/gas station and had to buy it for me as a gag gift! I was very delighted!!

Anyway... I scanned the sticker and for the past 2 (3?) hours have been playing around with the software to fine tune the design. Looks pretty good!

The chart can be used with any craft that requires a charted design.

I've been searching for a small NASCAR logo and yours came up.... excellent! Thanks so much- My 5 yr old son is a NASCAR fan and I wanted to make him this logo. :)

You're welcome! I'm glad the chart helps you!

Hi there, I have been hunting for a pattern for a crocheted Horse. I've seen the picture several times of a pattern by Fran Goreham but I can't find the pattern anywhere. I can't even find the Crochet World for June of 2004 which is supposed to have the pattern. If you could help me out I'd be truly grateful.

Thank you

Hi, Sherry - I just emailed you to let you know how to find it using the Internet Archive: Way Back Machine.

How would I crochet this?

Hi, Becky - You would use the Tunisian crochet method (also called afghan stitch) which uses a double-ended crochet hook to crochet the NASCAR logo using the chart on my blog at http://www.tamemymind.com/blog/2006/03/18/nascar-logo-charted-design.php

Information about Tunisian is here:
