Buy the Antique Tea Label pattern on Etsy!

This one was fun! I’ve been wanting to do something cool with these labels from Vintage Vectors, and thought the tea label would make a nice colorful cross stitch pattern.

Antique tea label cross stitch pattern

I dyed the original fabric with tea (of course). I wish I’d taken before and after photos of the backstitching, because wow, does it make a difference! I think “death by backstitch” might become a feature of my designs… I love how the darker backstitching makes everything pop in this pattern.

There’s a coffee label, too, which I’m also considering…
