It will look good on almost any medium-color neutral fabric: beige, brown, greyish, blues, or anything you feel like using! Just make sure the white will show up. So don't use white fabric :)
Please make sure to cut your fabric at least 3" larger than the design on each side, 6" in total to each side (so for the full design, use a fabric piece that is at least 18" x 22" for 14-ct or 16" x 20" for 16-ct)
