Dolly Parton project

"Featured is a picture of Dolly Parton in her famous "Best Little Whorehouse in Texas" dress. It's pretty large in size (about 36 in x 48 in) but only uses about 9 colors. And I chose the program to only use MCG Textile colors too -- made it a whole lot easier. I had fun playing around with altering the colors -- makes the picture look sort of Andy Warhol-ish."

"I wanted to share with you my first finished rug using your program, although I will be hanging it on the wall, as I just can't see letting anyone walk on Jesus. It's 18.67" x 24" using 3.75 yarns per inch. It didn't turn out as nicely as I wanted because I got all my supplies from a company with very poor quality supplies, but it didn't turn out too bad. I'm working on a much larger one now using your program. It's 5 yarns per inch canvas and it's turning out so thick that it's like carpet. It's going to be a very nice area rug and it certainly helps having quality supplies. I've estimated it will take me around 160 hours just to latch it. As soon as I get it finished, I will send you pics. Please feel free to use my finished rug on your site as an example. Thanks again for such an awesome program. I love it!" Jesus project

I (pictured here with Her Honor and the latch hook project) made this wall hanging as a gift for Judge Judy. She loved it!! It was 24x19, but I didn't realize how big it actually was until Judge Judy held it up in front of her!

Created by Teresa, Paddy Cake is "a 12 yr old Lahso Apso. He belongs to my Aunt and Uncle. They are two dear people that has helped me more than they realize with dealing with the passing of both of my parents (5 months apart). This is the least I could do for them. Paddy Cake has been their loyal companion since a pup. I have hopes he will enjoy his new rug as he rests at ease in his senior years. After binding, I backed it with a product called "Safety Back Non-Skid Rug Backing, Graph N Latch®" I purchased from Hobby Lobby® but the name on it is "MCG Textiles®" This locks in the stitches." On top is the original picture, and on the bottom is a picture of the rug. Paddy Cake project

Col. David O. Whitaker, RET.
Col. David O. Whitaker, RET.
This is a wall hanging of Col. David O. Whitaker, RET. given to him as a retirement gift. .. over 25 years of dedicated service. Many years of extraordinary leadership skills, he was part of the backbone to make sure all of our troops had what they needed when they needed it. Throughout his career, he has had many responsibilities including leading a Battalion of men and women with strong support and superb organization. Spending a long time overseas in hostile situations, like many others, he encountered a few VERY CLOSE calls by a matter of seconds. He is forever grateful for his safe return as his thoughts will always remain with those who have made/continue to make the ultimate sacrifice. He holds degrees in the following: Master of Science, Strategic Studies, Master of Science, Business Management, Bachelor of Science in Business Management and several military schools. He continues to support his country and the troops but in a civilian aspect.

I replaced one of the colors with white being the pattern had no white in the stripes, stars, or shirt collar. Not sure what happened with the face. The pattern looked like it was going to be ok.

Dolly Parton again, by the same latch hook / Dolly Parton entheusiast as above. Just a head shot, but larger than the previous project - 42" x 48"!

Firefly "My husband's favorite TV show of all time is Firefly so I made a latch hook pillow of the show's logo. I had to do a bit of finagling to make the project not use so many colors but I got it! This only used four colors: two different shades of yellow, black, and rusty red. And best of all, my husband loved it!"

Wife at 4 (original) Wife at 4 (rug) This is a picture of my wife at age 4. This is my 15th rug and it is my biggest one to date - 44" wide by 60" tall, 43,200 pieces of yarn, 19 colors, and I cut every piece by hand. It took 12 hours to cut it all to start. But, by doing that, I only have about $80.00 in yarn.
This is my daughter annemarie at the age of 4. I did this one first, and my wife's next (see above) to see how they look alike. 38" by 48", 19 colors. It took 4 months. Annemarie (original)

Dogs "Hi just to let you know how fantastic your website is. I've just finished a rug of my 3 dogs & I'm really pleased with it. Your website is so easy to use & I've just downloaded another to start. Thank you."
"Portrait of my late veteran Benson of 13yrs and pup Finnegan. The colours in the program came out too multi and dark. MCG textiles were so sympathetic and very helpful, to get a more accurate colour without losing definition of the silver grey Weimaraners." Benson and Finnegan

Total project took about months to complete.
Thank you so much for this website, it was so much fun to make this project. I did a lot of latch hook when I was younger but grew tired of boxed kits.
I have made a couple latch-hook rugs from your site, and have another ready to start. Thank you so much for providing this tool. Here are two - the first I only used 9 colors and it turned out well. The second turned out better than expected. I like to pick my own images and not have to get a kit. I hardly ever found one i liked. Completed Moon Rug

VFW This rug was completed on 5 mesh canvas using MCG Textiles. I highly recommend their products! I was very happy that the yarn was more durable and did not fray as bad. I used iron on rug binding to finish it off.

This is a 24" x 34" that will be framed according to the gentleman who had asked me to do this. I left a 1" canvas border around the working for him to have it framed. The emblem and its wording placement was per his specifications. Although it may be difficult to see here, but it is for the VFW Ladies Auxiliary. In this photo, the colors are a bit dark. In actuality, they are lighter. I was very pleased with the outcome!

One Red Rose. Created using 3.75 canvas and Joann Fabric yarn. 12" x 10", and 8 colors.

"The rose is from a bouquet I gave my wife. We were both quite pleased with the results!"

Crocheted Blanket

Not really what our site was intended for, but more power to you!

"My FIRST crochet project - a blanket that I made using a pattern created with the leftsource online latchhook pattern creator program!"

Another project the site wasn't intended to create, but it turned out well. This is an afghan. It makes use of the ability to choose a yarns-per-inch wide value independent of yarns-per-inch tall.

This one turned out really nice. Less complex than a photograph, so it's pretty clear.
