I learned to embroider when I was a kid, when everyone was really into cross stitch (remember the '80s?). Eventually, I migrated to surface embroidery, teaching myself with whatever I could get my hands on...read more

Hungarian Flower Pot Embroidery Design – Stitched!


Amazon Books

Reader Charlotte Halley sent a photo of her embroidered version of the Hungarian Flower Pot hand embroidery pattern, and with her permission, I thought I’d share it with you!

Hungarian Hand Embroidery Design

Charlotte embroidered her Hungarian flower pot on a scrap of linen, with left over stranded cotton. She used split stitch, outline stitch, chain stitch and satin stitch. The flowers are stitched in two strands of cotton, while everything else is stitched in one strand.

I love what she’s done with it, and the subtle differences in reds for the flowers. The stem looks terrific – and the little tag with her initials sticking out of the flower pot is just perfect.

You’ll find the embroidery pattern for the Hungarian Flower Pot on the Patterns page, under Hungarian Embroidery Patterns. There are a few other Hungarian patterns there as well, and more to come!

Many thanks to Charlotte, for sending the photo! It’s always nice to see the patterns from Needle ‘n Thread embroidered!

I’ll see you Monday with a review of a new book on silk shading. Until then – enjoy your time with your needle and thread!

  1. G’day Mary and Charlotte,
    I really enjoyed seeing this. I like the neat touch of your planter marker with your signature and date Charlotte.
    Cheers, Kath.

  2. Oh Charlotte! That is lovely! Great job, and so nice to see that neat design stitched up in such pretty colors. Thanks for sharing, Mary. 🙂

  3. Beautiful! And it gave me an idea for my felted wool round robin group. I think I will try this bookmark doing the flowers in felted wool with a button in the middle and the remainder of the design embroidered. Not sure of the ground fabric yet. I will send a picture of the results.
