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.

Pink vintage lady pattern

When I found these illustrations from some vintage magazine, I absolutely fell in love with them. But then I stored images away in a very deep and uncategorized folder on my computer and forgot all about it. Only a couple of days ago, when Holly posted a comment on my Lady Iris pattern I remembered that I had something vintage and chic to convert to cross stitch pattern in mind 🙂 So today’s pattern is an adaptation from an old fashion magazine.
