I have an easy DIY for you today! So I bought this purse for Jessi for her b-day, but the more I looked at it, the more I kept thinking it needed something. Metallic triangles were the answer. In the end, I’d say my little project was a success: Jessi thought I bought it with the triangles! That’s the best compliment, right?
Something blank to design, like this soft fake leather purse
Metallic Sharpie permanent marker
This is so easy! Just take out that sharpie and get crazy with it. I think the simple shapes work best, but do whatever you please.
Pointer #1: The key to making this work is the material. I think this particular purse is some sort of fake leather, and the Sharpie just went on like… well… a permanent marker. I was going to put a topcoat finisher on it, but I didn’t think it was necessary. If you think it might smear, though, perhaps try one. I have a spray one that I got at Micheal’s.
Pointer #2: in my head the triangle pattern was less all over the place and more static, but let’s get real: drawing the same triangle exactly the same length apart all the time is hard. So random is way less stressful and it still turns out lovely!
Pointer/Random thought #3: If you don’t have a bag to draw on, just draw polka dots, stripes or cat silhouettes on your nails!
Good luck, pretty kitties! Let me know if you tackle a project with a metallic sharpie, especially a purse!
