The packaging DOES NOT include fabric. You must trace the design onto fabric yourself. But I must say, I didn't even need a light box to do it. The lines on the pattern are wide enough and dark enough that you can see through it really well. Simply get out a ruler and pencil and trace away! Why not have your shop owner order fabric for you by the yard from Norden Crafts? You can then use your patterns over and over for gift giving!
