My new hobby is latch-hook rug-making.

If you don’t know much about latch-hook rug-making, a handy introduction video is available here on YouTube.

Not wanting to make the usual designs – pussy cats, teddy bears, flowers, etc – I decided to look for my own design. Preferably a Giant. I think Caravaggio’s “David and Goliath” would make a nice rug.

So the question is: how do you make your own pattern?

 Well, apparently there is all sorts of software around for converting your image into a rug pattern. Great!

A free online site that allows you to upload pictures, adjust the pictures, and print off your rug pattern is Leftsource.com.

Happy hooking awaits!
