3D Papercraft - Create PaperChibi Avatar


PaperChibi is an amazing new iOS application for personalized avatar paper crafts. Check out our video to see how it works: Make cute chibi avatars; change their clothes, hairstyle, eyes, and lots more. Then print and make real 3D papercraft avatars. Create chibi friends and family. Make a t-rex or a car for your chibi to ride in.

To assemble: use an adhesive dot roller, scrapbooking glue dots, a glue stick, or small strips of double sided tape.

Works best with photo paper or card stock. Use AirPrint to send finished chibi directly to your printer; set your printer to use 8.5"x11" or A4 paper. Email a PDF or save one to iBooks or similar apps.

Chibi avatars are completely customizable! There are several print options that vary in poses and difficulty. The simplest chibi is very kid friendly. Incredibly fun for school art classes. Teachers, consider adding them to storytelling projects!

Take a photo of the chibi avatars you've made and share them on Instagram or Twitter with hash tag #paperchibi.

For Those Who Like to Knit

If you love to knit, then these apps are perfect for you. Create sweaters, scarves, and so much more with patterns and counters to help you along the way.

Knitting iCharts

Knitting iCharts

Peter Schneider

Knitting iCharts - the must-have for everyone that designs their own knitting pattern and wishes to illustrate the charts appealingly.

With this app you are able to:
⁃ create a table with up to 99 stitches in 99 rows.

⁃ save the table together with a key explaining the stitch symbols and use it in your written pattern or share it via several channels.

Additionally we offer the service to implement missing stitch symbols. Just send an email to our support!

When developing this app we made sure that it is easy-to-use and intuitive that creating a new chart is a piece of cake!

Please feel free to use the charts built in Knitting iCharts in patterns that you are selling.

Happy designing!

Stitch Count

Stitch Count

Michael Sealand

Stitch Count is a simple app to help knitters and crocheters manage their stitches and rows. Its design is straightforward enough for those who just want an easy way to keep track of numbers, but it’s also great for designers who need to take notes and pictures while creating a pattern. You can manage multiple projects at once and share your progress. Stitch Count was created with knitting and crocheting in mind, but it can easily be used for any project that involves multiple steps.



What There's Time For LLC

Maybe you're the kind of knitter that always has things in order. You'd love nothing better than to set up each row of a pattern before you even cast on. Or maybe you're the type that dives in with abandon... but would love a lifeline to easily get started again, no matter how long that shawl or hat or intricate baby sweater has been lost in the bottom of your bag.

Either way or somewhere in between, Knitamus is designed for you.

Each Knitamus project can have as many pieces as you need (for sleeves, front, and back, for instance). And each piece has a single counter so you always know which row you're on. Easily display as many PDF pages or chart photos as you need in the special chart window with an adjustable highlight bar that remembers each row. You can quickly page through to set the highlight for every row before you even start, including repeating highlights, or you can just get started and each row will be remembered as you go in case you knit it again. Easily add notes, repeating or not, to any row at any time.

iCloud sync allows you to work on your iPhone when you're out and about, or enjoy the larger space of your iPad when it's available.

The Ravelry connection keeps your photos and project status up-to-date automatically.

I hope you enjoy Knitamus! Please share the love by leaving a review on the App Store and contact me by email with any questions or concerns.

Happy knitting!

Knitamus is designed and built by an avid knitter, with gratitude for ideas and support from wonderful knitting friends.
