The best ideas always come when you don't have the materials-I do this all the time I buy stuff for one project then I think of something else I woudl rather do.

Have you ever made your own pattern using the picture you want to copy on top of carbon paper laid over graph paper?

It is really easy and fun. My favorite cross stitch is from an old church bulletin.

I have made my own patterns for years but I have never tried the carbon paper method, sounds like a good idea. A tip for making your own patterns is to get a dry erase artist eraser, It leaves no trace of pencil line behind at all.

No I don't have any pictures. I might be able to scan it though. Let me experiment a bit with scanning it.

Ok I scanned it. It is pretty blurry but I think you can get the jist of it. I did it on 22 count so it is small fits in a 5x7 frame.
