This design was inspired by the embroidery seen most often on Hungarian peasant blouses sold in souvenir shops all over Hungary. It was originally used to embellish folk wear in Northern Hungary's Matyo region: men’s and women’s shirts, household textiles, and decorative aprons. This pattern is excellent for the wide waistbands of skirts and dresses or the neckline of a blouses. The single motif included in this pattern file is one of the designs from the Faraway Garden embroidery pattern pack, which is available as PDF as well as hot-iron transfer printed pattern. I created a stand-alone pattern of this design because it works especially well on the waistline of the Giselle dress (available as PDF and printed paper sewing pattern here in this shop), or at the neckline of a simple peasant blouse. This pattern is a great way to dip your feet into traditional folk embroidery by creating a piece of wearable art, though it would also work great on throw pillows, table runners and other household textiles. Pattern file contains nested test squares (1”by 1” and 2cm by 2cm) to help you make sure the design prints at the right size. *** IMPORTANT *** Because of the digital nature of this product, there can be no refunds or exchanges.
