1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Leather clutch bag tutorial link! on: November 26, 2013 02:56:04 PM
Hey! I just finished this leather cross body clutch style bag and just HAD to show it off! I love it! The full tutorial with lots of pictures on how to make it is here: http://www.domesticblisssquared.com/2013/11/leather-purse-tutorial.html I cut two rectangles of leather out of a thrifted leather skirt, and two rectangles the same size of lining fabric. Then I sewed the leather and lining to a zipper, sewed all around the outside, turned it inside out and used a chain from another old bag to make it cross body. I was even able to make the chain detachable so that I can use it as a clutch!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Basic woven tank top with link to tute on: August 02, 2013 04:26:01 PM
This is a link to the tutorial on my blog for this basic tank top. I created this tank using an existing one that I traced to make a pattern. I used bias tape to create a binding/seam the inside and there you go! It's a really simple project that you can make in under an hour! here is the link to the full tutorial: http://www.domesticblisssquared.com/2013/07/basic-tank-top-sewing-tutorial.html

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Refashioned peplum top from hideous dress! on: August 02, 2013 04:21:39 PM
I was inspired by an anthropologie top I saw online, and I refashioned this adorable chambray peplum top from a hideous thrifted dress. This refashion was a whole makeover on this dress. I bleached it, took it in, added darts, took off sleeves, and then I chopped the hem off of the dress to create this top. You can check out more pictures on my blog here: http://www.domesticblisssquared.com/2013/07/a-refashioned-refashion-and-outfit.html  

I absolutely love it! I wear it all the time and will wear it long into the fall/winter.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Clearance Dress to Skirt Refashion on: May 06, 2013 08:40:26 PM
I found a $4 dress on clearance and loved the fabric.  But it was a little frumpy and I could never style it right.  So I converted it from this:

to this:

I gave more detail (step by step) here: http://www.domesticblisssquared.com/2013/05/dress-to-skirt-refashion.html

It was an easy project and I'll definitely be converting more dresses to skirts!
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / DIY Polka dot jeans on: March 11, 2013 03:53:59 PM
I made these from a pair of old boot cut jeans I've had in my pile waiting to be refashioned forever. I made them into skinny jeans, then polka dotted them with fabric paint and the end of a pen. The link to the full post with more pics and detail is here: http://www.domesticblisssquared.com/2013/03/pinterest-challange-polka-dot-jeans.html#

Next time I would not use fabric paint, it didn't hold up at ALL in the wash! I will use bleach, it will be more permanent.

What a super creative idea!  I've been trying to figure out some cool ways to do art without buying canvass so I LOVE this idea!  Great job!
7  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Super easy wall art! on: March 02, 2013 08:23:09 AM
I recently painted my bedroom BRIGHT! GREEN! and have been struggling to find wall art that matches!  So I searched around my house, found a couple of canvasses and voila!  I bought this AMAZING fabric:

And made these:

I have a mini-tutorial here: http://www.domesticblisssquared.com/2013/02/diy-fabric-wall-art.html

Easy, quick and cheap!  And I'm totally obsessed with this fabric!
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / "vintage" 90's dress refashioned into hi-lo hem on: February 28, 2013 09:02:18 AM
This was really easy! I just cut a new angled hem and re-hemmed it. No other changes! It turned out super cute and now it's really flattering and modern. The link to the mini tute and the before pics is here: http://www.domesticblisssquared.com/2013/02/hi-lo-dress-makover-with-mini-tutorial.html

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Weird vintage striped dress refashion on: February 27, 2013 08:22:36 PM
I took this hideous dress and hacked off about six inches of hem, and completely re shaped the neck to make it off the shoulder. I'm not sure how I like it, I feel like it's a little weird looking still and I don't know why. I love the sleeves and the top, though! Maybe it's too long? Here is the link with the before pic: http://www.domesticblisssquared.com/2013/02/striped-dress-refasion.html

10  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Girl's hi-low circle skirt with link to tutorial on: February 27, 2013 08:18:19 PM
My daughter wanted some new skirts for spring, and she asked for something pink, twirly and "like a pop star would wear." Since Pop Star Kiera wore a hi-low skirt in Barbie: Princess and a Pop star, this was a no brainer! I used a basic circle skirt formula and just moved the center opening off center a bit so that one side would be longer. I need to make more of these! The link for the full tutorial is here: http://www.domesticblisssquared.com/2013/02/girls-hi-low-circle-skirt-tutorial.html#
