Hi, Kathleen! Emma used around 2-3 yards of our cotton silk fabric which is 40" wide. You'll likely only need about 2 yards if you have a wider fabric.

You're right, Christine, it's looks like your fabric design slipped into the bundle photo by mistake. The top ten designs are posted here on the contest page: http://www.spoonflower.com/contests/241. We don't have a corrected fat quarter bundle photo, but Demigoutte's fabric appears here in the contest Flickr album: https://www.flickr.com/photos/spoonflower/sets/72157643710575095. Thanks for checking in!

Hi, Sarah, Anda's included a pattern here for size 6m. If you have a favorite pair of leggings that already fit your child, try folding them in half like the pattern demonstrates and tracing them instead.

Hi, Kate! I hope you enjoyed Samarra and Kate's project, and that their totem-inspired stack might inspire you to create your own unique ottoman! For their project they used the measurements from existing ottomans and added seam allowance to size the fabric design for this custom upholstery project. If you'd like to use Samarra's Totem Faces fabric to make your own pouf without recovering an existing ottoman, you can sew all six sides included on two yards of the design into a cube shape, and fill with bean bag fill. If you'd like to ask Kate more about how she worked with Samarra to size the design for their ottomans, email us at help@spoonflower.com. Best, Darci
