DIY Geometric Triangle Print Flats

Hey there!
Today I'd like to show you a little DIY project of mine! For the warmer season I wanted to have some cool flats that I could wear everywhere but that are bright and fun! I wasn't utterly convinced by the selection of local stores, so I thought of a design I liked and made my own Geometric Triangle Print Flats!
Of course I can't literally make my own shoes, so I had to purchase a simple pair of ballet flats to work with first. Here I just went for the regular H&M ballet flats they have every year, and chose a happy bright blue shade. These are only 10 Euros and great to work with. I'm wearing a German size 37.
To do the triangle print all I used was tape, fabric paint in black and a paint brush.
I wanted the triangle print to be all over the shoes, so I just used the tape and cut out random trinagles in all kind of shapes and sizes to stick them all over the shoe. I didn't leave too much space between them, covering it all up. I also put on the tape to keep a clean edge at the top and bottom.
Then I painted all over it with black fabric paint, let it dry for a couple of hours and then did a second coat to be sure everything was covered. When that was dry I removed all of the tape, which luckily came off very easily.
And now I have shoes that look like they're black with bright blue triangles on them! I love how they turned out and I'm sure I'll be wearing them all the time :) What I really like is that they don't look the same, which makes it more random and fun :)
What do you think of them?
xoxo, Misch

  3. Wow, they look so cool. I'm on a hunt for some special flats as well because the only pair that I currently own is printed with cheetah print and they obviously don't match every outfit, so I'm probably try your technique.
    Thanks for sharing
