The presented algorithm generates approximations of selfsimilar fractal sets. The algorithm is based on a pattern rewriting system that draws a geometric pattern repeatedly after suitable mappings. A program developed from the algorithm reproduces Mandelbrot's selfsimilar fractals. We begin by discussing fractals and dimension theory, then present the algorithm, and conclude by using fractal set theory to calculate the dimensions of selfsimilar sets from their generators.
