I’ve had these slip-on shoes for a few years now, and decided they needed an upgrade…to diamond slippers!
This is a really easy DIY. For a hand-drawn look, I backstitched the diamonds without tracing the shape in watercolor pencil beforehand. I used all six strands of my floss.
For the insteps, I did a little cross hatching. The key to having neat lines is to draw evenly spaced dots across the top and bottom using watercolor pencil.
This idea works best with simple shapes. Other than diamonds, I considered using cats, cupcakes, and cool geometric designs kinda like this but not nearly as complicated looking.
