Anthropologification is when you take a basic boring piece like a skirt or sweater, add your own ribbon or embellishment and voila’ it looks like you paid a ton of money for it at Anthropologie. I have four examples of sweaters being Anthropoligified. I’ll post two right now and two next week.


Inspiration: Grace, a friend I met through Rebecca was wearing a darling monogrammed sweater.

How to Make: Buy an iron on letter at a notions store or on ebay right here. It should cost around $2/letter. The sweater I used was just a little $15 cotton vneck from Zara. All you do is iron it on. The whole process took me around five minutes and $17.


Inspiration: I bought this sweater from Anthropologie after it went on sale. I realized that it could easily be copied. Original price: $120 {I didn’t pay this much!}

How to Make:
I bought about $7 worth of felt from Joann’s Fabrics. I also bought $5 worth of double sided iron on adhesive. I think it still needs something {maybe some yellow} but I didn’t want to do too complicated of a design my first time. I bought this Lambswool sweater from LaRedoute for $17. Follow the directions on the double sided adhesive. Basically you iron the adhesive to the felt, cut out the pieces and then iron them to the sweater. {I still am going to go over and hand stitch the edges down because the original is like that.} The whole thing took me about an hour and cost me about $29.

    How creative!

    Would you typically use the letter from your first name, or last name?

    Hand or machine stitch everything you put on with iron on adhesive. It looks great at first, but with the wear and tear of a day it can start to peel off and then you’ll look kind of strange.

    Good idea though. I wish I were in San Fran or you were in Boulder so we could do projects like this together!

    You need to go to the Ribbonaire on 15th and Potrero. They have all sorts of amazing things that you could use for this type of project!

    Can you give me a name brand for the double-sided adhesive. This is exactly what I need to attach a felt flower to a little wool hat.
