Golden Age Pillow Pattern – Free Download

The focal print in Golden Age, “Old Hollywood” is such a striking print and an unusual one, compositionally speaking.  I love it!  I think it’s so pretty and so interesting!  Knowing that this print would be a bit more challenging to work with, I knew instantly I wanted to showcase it by creating a decorative accent pillow.  I also knew I wanted to incorporate embroidery to give it a more three dimensional effect.

I chose the Tea Dyed color-way, but this pattern can easily be done in the Sky color-way as well.

While designing this pattern I wanted the column to be front and center, to really emphasize that unique design.  I don’t have any strict rules in terms of placement, other than to center it.  You can choose that for yourself.

One great thing about this pattern is that there is no tracing whatsoever!  I simply used the print as the template and embroidered where I wanted to highlight the design.  However, I will say that you can embroider as little or as much as you want with this, or none at all if embroidery isn’t your thing.

I hope you enjoy this free pattern!
