Sooooooo I love everything in Anthropologie. Because, you know, its easy to love. Just not to own. Cause I don't have that much money. I especially loved this bedspread...



I would drool over it every time I went to the store. Its made out of JERSEY AND ITH THO SOFFTTT.

Andddd its $3045083408934.

Sorta.

So anyway, I took myself down to our local Dirt Cheap store (seriously, check them out if you have one, I LOVE IT) and picked up 50 white t-shirts for $30. A week later and some dead brain cells later...





(Sorry for the shoddy cell phone pics! o.O)

I really like how it turned out. Its not as bunchy as the original, but, it keeps me nice'n'toasty just fine Smiley

In progress...



Taking over the living room hahaha





Thanks for looking!

That. Is. Aaaawwesome! You did an amazing job recreating the original inspiration. Are the tee shirts knotted in the middle? or are they sewn?

Wow!  That is so creative, and it came out so nice!  How did you make the back?  I feel like I want to make one of these immediately...maybe in red to match my room.
