How to create a flat pattern for a spherical surface

We need to create a flat pattern (sketch) to properly design a label or fabric for a spherical surface. We've tried to use sheet metal but as far as we can tell its not possible to create sphere with this method. Any ideas on how to translate spherical shapes into flat patterns?
