Hip to be Square Pillow {Pollinate by AGF}

As I do most mornings, I wake up before my alarm goes off and with bleary eyes, look at my phone screen to see what notifications have arrived during the night. 

This morning, I woke up to find that I'd been tagged on Instagram by Art Gallery Fabrics. Well that's a bit exciting, right?

I discovered that Maureen Cracknell had used my Hip to be Square Pillow tutorial to create a gorgeously cozy version of the pillow in the new Pollinate fabric, designed by Jessica Swift. 

It's this just a really lovely and warm version of the pillow? It looks quite autumny to me, which is perfect for the weather we're having here in Australia right now.

A few versions of this pillow (and also quilts) have been made and shared over on Instagram, which always delights me to see.

I took screen shots of the photos from the AGF Pollinate Lookbook which you can find here along with links to a number of other gorgeous patterns and places to purchase this fabric range.

* I've had a look at the Fat Quarter Shop and you can purchase the Pollinate fabric right here or by clicking directly on the image below. The FQ and 1/2 yard bundles are really pretty.

And here's my original Hip to be Square Pillow in more spring-ish colours. If you'd like to make your own pillow, you can access my free pattern right here.


  1. That's awesome Anorina... congrats...xox

  2. Hi, could you tell me the size of your square in square pillow? I couldn't find it anywhere? Is making patterns into a PDF a lot of work for designers? Thank you

  3. I love your pattern and yes, it looks greats in spring or autumn colours!

  4. Thank you so much for your patterns. I expect to make them all. The first on my list is the fall table runner. Thanks again.
