Teddy Bear Hunt around Budapest for Valentine’s Day

Teddy Bear Hunt around Budapest for Valentine’s Day

Szeretnél egy piros szíves horgolt kismackót magadnak? Keress egyet Budapest utcáin! Hogy hogyan? A cikkből és a videóból kiderül.

Last year before Valentine’s Day, 100 tiny scarlet crocheted hearts popped up all around Budapest, sweetly surprising all fortunate finders with a lovely little message. Well, it looks like artsy Magyar blogger Marina Bellai has her heart in the right place, as this year she made 500 of these little red tokens of affection and is hiding them citywide, inviting everyone to hunt for hearts once again. With a little help from Marina’s friends, all of the hearts will be hidden around the city before Valentine’s Day, brightening the days of Budapest dwellers with a random act of kindness.

Marina Bellai about her project:

“When last year I crocheted 100 small hearts and hid them in various places in Budapest, I decided t hat this year I would do that again, and I would make even more.

Got heart! This year I’ve dispatched 500 tiny crochet hearts with this message. On the one hand it is obvious that the one who finds a heart, gets a heart – so (s)he has got heart. On the other hand with this short message I also wanted to draw attention to the fact that good dwells in everyone. In you, too! I meant this sentence to plant a seed of an idea, which I hope will germinate in some people. :)

They are literally heartful teddies as I really put a crochet heart into their bodies when I make them.

I crocheted 40 hearts on average each day and used about 400 meters of yarn in total. Then I cut the cards, made a hole and tied the hearts to them. Meanwhile I took lots of photos which I used to create the video above. I think the result is pretty cool considering that I’m not a photographer or a film editor.

I started to crochet the hearts on the 1st of January so I finished everything in time but I had to ask my friends to help me to hide the hearts. I think, without them I would be running in the streets with the hearts until Christmas. Thanks to them there are hidden hearts in almost all the districts of Budapest so I am really happy. We've started to hide the hearts on the 2nd of February, and we can finish it sometime before Valentine's Day.

Since I wrote my blog’s name on the cards, people started to send photos of the hearts found.”

Happy hunting and good luck in case you want to find a teddy!
