  • I love the background of the four images on the "What to Eat" section in the September 2013 issue- I assume they are table cloths. Are these stencils that Martha sells? Would love to buy them!

    Hi Mary,
    Unfortunately they are tablecloths and are not exact stencils that we sell. We do sell something similar here that could help you create that "kitchen tablecloth" look.
    I think some of the charm in the tablecloth is that loose hand painted/hand drawn look. I think you'd be able to accomplish a similar effect (in the two tablecloths with dots) just by using the eraser end of a pencil as a stamp and a taped line as a guide. Our craft paint works on fabric when mixed with a fabric medium.
