Don't feel bad for knocking off Anthropologie, they just knock off Etsy: http://www.regretsy.com/2011/01/19/new-game/  and http://www.regretsy.com/2011/01/31/etsy-or-anthropologie/.

That and their prices are completely insane.  I vowed never to buy anything from there when I saw $200+ felted wool pendant lamps.  It was an unfinished rectangle of wool fixed to an IKEA plastic fixture and blanket stitched on one side.  Unless the wool came from some extinct breed of sheep and was dyed using an endangered species of plant (which was not stated) the price made me what to set something on fire.  So I knocked off a shirt of theirs.  Smiley

It's great.  Sweet dreams.

Oh my goodness, wow you guys! Thank you all so much!

As to the knots, it was super easy...and actually...someone posted a link several posts up to how I did mine...almost exactly! (That tutorial would have been FABULOUS while I was trying to figure this out!!)

Oh my Deity that is just freakin amazing! I think you did an amazing job reproducing it. In reality I think anthropologie is way over priced for the quality of their materials.
