You pick the fabric, this pattern will work for any repeat pattern, any cotton professional sports team, your logo fabric, florals, stripes, any repeat, intricate to simple. Now this pattern is good for ANY repeated design fabric that you buy from the fabric, quilt, or craft store, because the patterns printed out can be transferred directly to a sheet protector or clear vinyl. You then take that clear house shaped pattern and pocket pattern to the store, and lay it over the fabric bolt that you unraveled, to determine the placement of the pattern's design layout, thus determining exactly how much fabric that you need. You may need a small amount, 1/4 of a yard, up to 1/2 a yard, depending on how small or large the design on the fabric is, and it's repeat layout. The clear patterns can have the center lines drawn on them, to help you center your pattern, just use the Sharpie marker, and a ruler.
