This exuberant collection of embroidery patterns was inspired by Central European floral motifs from the villages of North-Eastern Hungary. These motifs are based on the fabled stitching of Matyó women, and can be worked using both modern and traditional stitches. Use these florals to add unique touches of folksy, colorful exuberance to blouses, home textiles, or accessories. Designs range from 2” to 15.25” in height and can be mixed and matched to create unique combinations.

With this pattern set, you can make your own bit of Hungarian folk art - or a head-turning peasant blouse. Go traditional, or completely casual and modern with your stitching, these flowers are yours to play with!

Recommended Supplies

We recommend linen, cotton broadcloth, lightweight denim or chambray for the base fabric for easiest stitching. If using very lightweight fabric, we suggest starching the fabric before stitching to give it more body and stability.

Our favorite threads for this style of embroidery are perle cotton in sizes #5, #8, or #12, or cotton floss. These designs also look wonderful stitched with stranded silk threads.
