The fun style of this ogee pattern tea towel mimics the magazine cover's wall tiles! Plus it's surprisingly simple to replicate—just follow the steps below.

What you need

  • textile medium
  • crafts paint (Poppy and Sea Blue, both by Americana)
  • dish towel (Plain weave 20" x 28" cotton dish towel in white, $2.50, discountembroideryblanks.com)

1. Click here to download the ogee template. Print both parts, then cut them out, and trace each onto a printing block, such as Speedball Speedy-Carve. Cut out each with a crafts knife and, using double-sided tape, adhere each to an acrylic block. These will be your stamps.

2. Use a pouncer to coat the large stamp with acrylic paint mixed with a textile medium to make it fabric-safe. Starting at one edge of a white dish towel, stamp a row of ogees, leaving a little space between each one. Let dry.

3. Follow the instructions in step two to coat the small stamp with paint. Use it to fill in the ogees. Let dry.
