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."

Jesus project "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!"

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.

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!"

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.

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.

I've been doing latch hook rug since I was 13, now 47. My friend wanted me to do a heart rug for her, but I didn't want it to be a simple rug so I found a sunset to put in the back ground, and then the couple looked nice. I only used the silhouette from the lower pic.

"Hi Guys, Just thought I would send you a picture of my latest finished project. It is a picture of my daughter and is a graduation present for her. Took 7 months to complete. I am absolutely rapt with it, and would like to take this opportunity to thank you so very much for allowing us to use your website in order to do this unique type of work. So very much appreciated."


"I created this colt 45 latch hook rug back in July 2014. It is 21" by 60" and uses 54 different colors. I'm impressed with how well it turned out, but I am still trying to figure out exactly what to do with it."

"Just finished another. I love leftsource!

I am attaching a series of photo's that shows the development of the project, which I called "Hanging Branch". It took me two months to complete (I started at the very end of December). My goal was to create a fireplace rug. I wanted a outdoor theme - based on trees. The pictures show:

  1. Cropped image of the picture of the hanging branch - this is the basis for the final product.
  2. From here I rendered the image down to what I wanted using a photoshop program (I use one called GIMP). First I reduced it to black and white. (no grayscale) Then I selected out the hanging branch in black and colored the rest of the trees brown. Then I colored in the rest of the image - this is what I fed to the leftsource website.
  3. The finished project.

I printed the pattern in black and white and used a 8x11 color print as a reference. I let your program do the horizontal distortion.

This is my very first original creation. My past experience was always working from kits. When I first envisaged this program I was kind of hoping I would find something on the Internet to help me out and found your site.

I thought you might like to see my (99%!) complete project (the final stitches of the finish backing should completed tomorrow). It was done from a pattern generated by your software back in August '16 I think it was. I imported/fiddled the PDF into Excel and then printed it all out, bought the wool from MCG direct and used all that on plain 4.5" hpi canvas. It's 161 rows by 216 columns so 34,776 stitches, used 19 colours and by the time it will finally be finished it will have taken me over 380 hours from first stitch to the last bit of tape binding on the back.

Uriah Heep

"This latch hook rug was from a Uriah Heep album cover picture. Uriah Heep was a hard rock band from the UK in the 1970s. This rug was approximately 5.5 ft. x 6ft., 99,000 pieces of yarn, 72 different colors of yarn, and took me 4 years to complete. I used leftsource to turn the picture into a rug project and I am happy with the results! I used 5 mesh rug canvas for better detail. I love classic rock and would like to do another project....maybe Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, or Rush. Haven't decided yet. I wish MCG Textiles did not close down because they had the best latch hook yarn in a variety of colors."

I was telling my husband that I wanted to turn my own images into latch hook rugs, and lo & behold, I found your site on the internet. I'm addicted. Only thing is, I has so much yarn left over from my first project that I hardly had to use any from my second project (except for new colors) on my second project. Now I have to find a way to use up all of my left over yarns! It' a great site with a great service! My first project is attached."

"I have been using kits for years but really wanted to try doing one from a picture. I had no idea how until I found your site, even though you pixelated the picture I selected, I had to get all the yarn, cut it and get a blank canvas to do it on. Here is the final result (except for the backing) with the original picture in front of it."

"I then found LeftSource, uploaded a photo with maximum colors from Herrschners, and found 5X5 mesh canvas and completed the attached rug of my cat. The final size is 34X22 and has 54 colors. I am very pleased with the finished rug. Thank you so much for your program!"
