Embroidery pattern: Little Berry Burst

Embroidery pattern: Little Berry Burst

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Some basic embroidery experience

Pattern Description:

This free pattern is based on the same style of Hungarian Maty embroidery as the Faraway Garden and Cabbage Rose Fancy embroidery pattern sets, both of which are available here as well. While much smaller and less extensive, this little design is a great way to try out my patterns, and try your hand at a small folklore embroidery project.

I originally designed it to have something quick and simple to stitch on a summer top. Shown here, the Little Berry Burst pattern is stitched on a Sewaholic Renfrew t-shirt, in a fairly traditional way, using satin stitch for leaves, petals, berries, and stem stitch for stems and vines. But feel free to stitch it any way you like: it would also look great outlined with split stitch, stem stitch, chain stitch, back stitch... Anything you can think of!

There is also a tutorial about how to embroider on a t-shirt here: kate-and-rose.com/learn/sewaholic-renfrew-with-hungarian-embroidery-free-patterntutorial/

The pattern prints to two pages of US letter or A4 size paper, with nested test squares (1" by 1" and 2 cm by 2cm) to ensure the printout is the right size. Page two of the pattern contains simple stitching diagrams for Maty embroidery.


  • something to embroider (t-shirt, blouse, anything else)
  • embroidery thread (perle cotton or floss both work well)

You Will Also Need:

  • scissors, perhaps t-shirt stabilizer (if stitching pattern on stretchy material)
