Tangerine Cross Stitch Pattern

$3.97 USD

Citrus fruit in cross stitch

Looking for something fresh and bright to cross stitch? This retro tangerine is super yummy in DMC Orange Spice, Copper, and Light Straw.



Tangerine cross stitch pattern was inspired by a USDA pomological watercolour painted in the early 20th century.

Despite being more than 100 years old, the sliced fruit in our cross stitch project still looks good enough to eat. Or put on a funky tote bag.

The Fruit

Pomology is a branch of botany that studies the cultivation of fruit. From 1886 to 1942 the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) commissioned 21 artists to paint and draw common species of fruit and nut plants. These would be for used in USDA yearbooks and bulletins issued to growers.

Many of the drawings (especially this one) are quite beautiful and translate perfectly to cross stitch projects. Check in the store for more designs in our vintage pomology series.
