free cross stitch pattern Hi Yu apples fruit crate label

Updated on March 29, 2014

Original Image

Vintage Fruit Crate Pattern

I made a new pattern and I pretty pleased with it, the only problem is my cross stitch software, it will not show red very well if I try to view the finished image.

So the image below had a white background, that is just to give you an idea of what the finished image looks like, it would really look best if you used red Aida.

Pattern Information

The stitch count it 204 wide by 173 high so this is a big one, you can make it smaller by going with 16 or 18 count rather than the 14 it was designed for.

The pattern uses 14 DMC colors and I recommend red Aida.

      I sympathize, I can't cross stitch anymore either because of my eyesight. But I have downloaded so many free patterns over the years that I thought I should do my share and I do enjoying making them.

      I don't do cross stitch because of poor eyesight, but I do admire anyone who has the patience and skills. Very nice Hub with great step-by-step illustrations. Great graphics. Growing up in California, I love looking at fruit crate labels. With this Hub, I may change my mind about cross stitch. Thanks!
