I first saw this pillow (above) via Real Simple and thought it was darling.  I clicked the link to the site to discover more pretty pillows and that their origin is Hungarian, made in Hungary using traditional Hungarian motifs. I happen to be half Hungarian (Austrian descent on my dad’s side, Hungarian descent on my mom’s side) so immediately connected to something that displayed a bit of heritage.  Aside from heritage, these pillows are just really pretty!

This pillow is made by using hand -cut reverse felt applique.

My Hungarian grandmother used to sew a lot, this pillow reminds me of something she would have made.

The reds are pretty too!

Now if only I could find those traditional Hungarian cookies & pastries my grandmother used to make for the holidays…

I had to leave a comment just because these are so great.

I think the neutral colored ones are fantastic.
