Eat Fruit Be Healthy: vintage poster pattern

I guess the title says it all 🙂 Today’s freebie is an adaptation of a vintage poster promoting healthy food, namely apples and grapes. The image and lettering in it are a great example of negative space.

The pattern is dextremely easy: three colors only. Use off-white or cream canvas for more authentic vintage look.

Please welcome Mr. Broccoli, Mr. Tomato and Mr. Carrot! Though Mr. Broccoli is smiling, but deep inside he thinks, Nobody likes me. Press like to let him know it isn’t true!

Did you know? Tomato is technically a fruit, as well as avocado, and watermelons are botanically berries! I wish I never knew that 🙂 Together with broccoli, tomatoes are among the best veggies for your health.

Cute fruits cross stitch pattern

Simple fruit pattern for your kitchen or playroom: Mr. Apple, Mr. Orange and Mr. Pear in a cute (kawaii) style. I’m not exactly sure, why Mr. Pear is not smiling along with his friends, is it because he is still green?

You can stitch the chart as is or use any of the fruits for a separate embroidery. This chart is suitable for beginners.

This chart is free to download (use the link under the picture), but I would recommend it only for experienced stitchers.

Avocado cross stitch chart

Oldies but goldies – I made the “Avocado” cross stitch chart more than a year ago, and it is still one of my favorites. It is a pair for the Pumpkin pillow : same size, same style and the same vegetable ideology.
