Faraway Garden Hungarian Matyó embroidery pattern (PDF)
by Kate & Rose Follow

The "Faraway Garden" PDF instant download embroidery pattern set contains motifs based on embroidered blouses and shoulder scarves from North-East Hungary, the region where the Matyó people live.

You'll find embroidered items from this region all over Hungary, and you can even find vintage blouses stitched by Matyó women on (for example) Etsy.

With this pattern set, you can make your own Hungarian embroidered peasant blouse.

The images here show traditional ways of stitching these motifs from this region, with the most frequently used thread colors. The instructions contain basic information about how to stitch the motifs this way, as well as suggestions for alternate stitches you can use.

The pattern set:

- Long design for the front of a women’s t-shirt or blouse such as the front panel (pattern piece D) of the Róza blouse, Kate & Rose Pattern No. 1001;

- Three individual motifs, enlarged for easier stitching and to work with (for example) the Róza blouse’s small center front square variation (Kate & Rose Pattern No. 1001, pattern piece B);

- Two-piece design for blouse or t-shirt necklines.

All designs work with the Róza blouse & dress pattern (available here: etsy.com/listing/150012091/roza-blouse-and-dress-pdf-pattern) - see image 4 for sample placements on garments. You can also just stitch it on a t-shirt! Just like they do in Matyó villages today (image 5).
