1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Mad Max: Fury Road cosplay on: October 06, 2015 01:06:56 PM
This is my husband's costume for the cons this year, he's cosplaying Mad Max (Tom Hardy style). Everything in the costume was DIY, including the shotgun (a painted Nerf gun), the jacket and the shoulder pad. We actually deconstructed  a set of football pads, painted and sewed them into what you see here. Let me know what you guys think! If you want 1,000 more detail shots of the gun and shoulder pad, etc. you can check those out here on my blog: http://www.domesticbliss2.com/2015/10/mad-max-fury-road-costume-version-20.html#.VhQkuPlViko

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / High-low swing dress with long sleeves on: September 09, 2015 09:15:01 AM
I am so, so proud of how this turned out! I used a double knit jersey so it's super stretchy and swingy. I don't have a serger so I just used the zig zag stitch which worked great. I wore it out with my husband this last weekend and he took these pics! I kind of wrote out instructions for how to make your own, too, which are here: http://www.domesticbliss2.com/2015/09/high-low-swing-dress-sewing-tutorial.html#.VfBaexHBzGc if you're interested.
3  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Mad Max version 1.0 on: September 09, 2015 09:09:25 AM
I wanted to show off my hubby's Mad Max (fury road) costume, it's mostly done, though of course after we took these pics we decided it needs more work  Grin This was done using thrifted pieces, his jacket we hacked off the sleeve. He has on a backpack instead of the tac vest from the movie that we added pieces of his own hiking/outdoor gear too. If you want a larger pic dump and some more details it's written out on my blog here: http://www.domesticbliss2.com/2015/07/simple-diy-mad-max-costume.html#.VfBZbhHBzGe
4  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!
5  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

6  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.
7  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!
8  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.
9  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!
10  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
