1  Scotch Tape and Rhinestone Nail Art in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by stellaheartocean on: September 30, 2012 05:39:43 PM
Hello! I've been Craftster AWOL for a while...thought I'd come back and share some simple nail art I did today.

I started with 3 coats of NOPI "Baby" Blue for the base. Once that was dry (I left it overnight), I used scotch tape to create the triangles with Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Pacific Blue. Added some coordinating rhinestones and smoothed it out with a coat of Seche Vite.


Please excuse my gnarly cuticles. Thanks for looking!

2  Re: Show Off Your Hair--Dyed, Cut, or Styled by Yourself! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by stellaheartocean on: January 28, 2012 11:21:58 AM
I recently got Bettie Bangs. This was taken a day or two after they were cut...need to back for a trim!


Sometimes I like to curl my hair. It gets pretty silly.

3  Hula Hoop Cover in Completed Projects by stellaheartocean on: March 08, 2011 08:36:26 PM
Hello! I don't spend much time in the miscellaneous boards, but I will definitely be coming around more because there is some really awesome stuff in here!

I wanted to show off my first attempt at a hula hoop cover. My friend Georgia and I take classes together and we like going to circus jams and just hanging out and being silly outside Smiley She has 3 hoops so I made her a cover for Christmas this year. It was really fun and easy to make. As soon as I find some more rad/cheap fabric I'm definitely making myself one!

Closeup of the fabric...it's crazy and colourful just like Georgia Cheesy


Thanks for looking!

4  My colourful new fail-win dress (3 pics) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by stellaheartocean on: February 28, 2010 01:43:53 PM
I found this awesome yellow fabric ages ago on sale. I didn't know what I wanted to do with it so I just bought lots of it. I'm sure you can all relate. I picked up the green later and then the lightbulb went on! I wanted to do a pleated skirt with crossed straps. Well, the pleat gaps very obviously (you can see what I mean in the photo) and I ended up cutting the straps too short, too soon. So, while I completely failed at executing the original idea, it wins by still being very cute Smiley

I will not apologize for being unphotogenic. I have a great personality and I'm quite a catch.


Boob closeup. You can see what I mean about the pleat here. Since the fabric is so loud, most people probably wouldn't even notice it's there. Also, check out my necklace. I found those beads and thought they matched so well!


The back, in all its un-crossed glory.


Thanks for looking! C+C welcome.

5  2 Knitty Scarves, Argosy and Edgar in Knitting: Completed Projects by stellaheartocean on: December 19, 2009 09:43:58 AM

Pattern: Argosy
Yarn: Berroco Ultra Alpaca, Lavender mix
Needles: 5.75
For the boyfriend's mom.

To show the points a bit better. I love this pattern and would definitely make it again.

Pattern: Edgar
Yarn: Moda Dea Cache
Needles: 8mm?
For my friend Katie. Because the yarn I wanted to use was so bulky, I altered the pattern a little bit by casting on fewer stitches. Seems to have worked well. I also made these handwarmers with the scraps and some anonymous Red Heart fluffy stuff. I crocheted (gasp!) the hand part and the worked the cuff in the round, in garter stitch.

Thanks! C+C welcome.

6  Underpants! Mounties, Lace, appliques, and Rocky Horror (lots of pics) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by stellaheartocean on: September 04, 2009 02:55:18 PM
I've recently discovered that I LOVE making underwear. It's such a perfect way to use up scraps or cute fabrics I wouldn't want to make an actual garment out of. I use a slightly modified bikini pattern from a Kwik Sew book, Swim and Action Wear by Kerstin Martensson.

I love this RCMP fabric. I feel like they're saluting my bum. Which is great when you're reluctant to get out of bed and dressed in the morning.


Simple lace-bordered undies based on a pair I bought ages ago at La Senza, and are the comfiest thing ever.


Ok, these rule. I guess these should *technically* be in the recon section, but I'd rather post everything at once.

AWESOME. Made from an old t-shirt


These are the first pair I made...they're not that good, but they were just to see what works/what doesn't etc. They are very comfortable, though. So not a loss at all.


These are just some store bought underwear that I appliqued. Because we all have enough boring underwear.


Thank you for looking! Questions and comments welcome.

7  Bikini top! in Knitting: Completed Projects by stellaheartocean on: August 30, 2009 01:54:00 PM
pattern: mine
yarn: Red Heart (gasp) Cotton Twist
needles/hook: 4.5 mm

I knit this for a friend who recently had her long-awaited breast reduction surgery. She loves it and tells me it's very comfortable. It didn't occur to me while I was making it, but this is GREAT for her to have right now since everything's still kind of swollen and weird...y'know. So this is really good for now until she can start wearing normal bras again. I just made it as a fun boob-related gift:P


The back, which is super adjustable


The cup stitches are picked up off of a crocheted band, this kinda shows what's going on there


Thanks for looking! I had an idea to make a top based on the idea, so if anyone wants a tute, I may be able to do one in the future.

Hello craftsters! I made this swashbuckling wallet for pirate-loving friend Katie's birthday. It's my first attempt at a wallet and I think it turned out very well! I'm giving it to her tonight, I think she'll love it.

9  Stephanie Japel's Textured Circle Shrug But Not Really in Knitting: Completed Projects by stellaheartocean on: August 07, 2009 12:07:51 PM
I absolutely loved the shape of Stephanie Japel's textured circle shrug, but not the overall design. I find she clutters her garments with unnecessary textures that detract from otherwise smooth and classy designs. So I removed it all! I basically used the pattern as a sizing guideline.

Pattern: Stephanie Japel's Textured Circle Shrug (http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/glamknits.html?r=1)
Yarn: Nashua Handknits Creative Focus Cotton
Needles: 4.5/5 mm circulars.
Modifications: Worked whole body in stockinette, moss stitch around borders, worked only half of collar to make it flat instead of foldy

I'm such a supermodel


Close up of the moss stitch


It was very hard to get a decent picture of the back. So here is a bad one.

I made this dress using Simplicity 5112, view A. The fabric is "Inked" by Alexander Henry. the only modification I made was instead of tying the straps, I cut them to the necessary length and put two big brass snaps on.
