TRIANGLE DIY

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

So I'm not sure if this is just an Melbourne thing or not, but go into the city and you see all the hipster teens carrying this Aussie Disposals backpack around. I kinda didn't want one in the first place because so many people have it, but because it's so cheap ($8.95) I thought why not put my own twist on it, and if I fuck it up I can always buy another one and start again!

You may know that I love a big love for triangles so I decided to draw some on. I started off drawing the triangles on with a fabric marker, but because the fabric is so textured, the marker would only cover the bumpy bits on top. I ended up painting over it with fabric paint which gave it a more even coverage. So yeah, I'm pretty happy with this DIY. Haven't posted a DIY in yonks so I hope you all like it! xo

Also, OH MY GOD! UP ALL NIGHT CAME OUT ON FRIDAY AND I BOUGHT IT! WOOOOOO! YEAH I'LL BE A DIRECTIONER FOREVER HAHA.

  37. Damn, I wish I was confident enough to try out DIY's because whenever I see any on other blogs, they look so cool. But I'm really not crafty and am worried I'd inevitably ruin something! Though this one might change my mind, it's really awesome and I love the graphic element against the more natural bag. Great work love!

  60. I have one of those bags! Except I've had it for a few years so the colour is a lot dirtier than your pretty new one, haha.

    The best thing about it is if you're sick of wearing it like a backpack, undo the straps from the bag, tie them together and then hey presto, you have a shoulder bag. Enjoy!

  64. Amazing idea! So many options. It would definitely be awesome to do an aztec- type print (keeping on the triangle/geometric theme).
    Otherwise glitter or tie dye would be pretty rad as well
