11  My cute new Rufus Wainwright T Shirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by stellaheartocean on: August 07, 2009 10:37:39 AM
This past weekend, I had the awesome the awesome opportunity to go to Osheaga in Montreal. I was most super excited for Rufus Wainwright (who was excellent) and of course had to buy a t shirt. Since it was gross man-sized I had to whip it into shape.

eek kind of blurry sorry

The sleeves are slightly gathered

mandatory before shot:

I was worried that my contrast fabric was going to be a bit too busy, but I think it looks pretty good. I wanted something whimsical but not overpowering. I didn't bother taking the shirt in at all before adding to it, which I think gives it a nice touch of slouchiness.

Thanks for looking! C+C welcome.

12  Paillette Purse - because Craftster needs more SPARKLE in Crochet: Completed Projects by stellaheartocean on: July 28, 2009 10:45:46 PM
I made this funky little purse for my friend Siobhan who likes things that are purple and sparkly and happened to have a birthday last weekend. She absolutely loved it.

I lined the inside with some lightweight sparkly denim and gave it a zipper. You can't see it too well in the picture but here you go anyway Tongue

It's about 8 inches long. I used 2 strands of Bernat's Cool Crochet (remember that stuff? came and went pretty fast!) that I'd bought for something else I will probably never make. I probably used 200+ paillettes.

Thanks for looking! C+C welcome.

13  Round Blue Brick Stitch Coin Earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by stellaheartocean on: June 29, 2009 03:57:56 PM
I made these earrings for my friend Siobhan, who will be turning 20 at the end of July. She is a classy lady and I think she will like these. I used a circular brick stitch technique I learned from an issue of Bead and Button.

Please let me know what you think!

14  Oodles of Peyote Rings! in Beads: Completed Projects by stellaheartocean on: June 28, 2009 05:52:19 PM
Hi folks! I've been making these simple peyote rings for a while, I just got around to taking some photos today. They're a really fun way to play with colours. They are all made with delicas.
Primary colours, one of my favourites.

I think this was the first one I made. The diamond was made with a sort of sideways-peyote technique that I learned from an issue of Bead&Button.

Just a plain striped band to show off my wonderful acid green beads! They're much more electric in real life.

I call this one "Booty" because the colours make me think of treasure lost at sea.

My pièce de résistance...the band is made from semi-transparent grey beads, and embellished with fire-polished crystals and swarovkis. The pictures don't really do it justice, it's incredibly fabulous in real life.

Please tell me what you think!

15  Boyfriend Shirt with Appliques in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by stellaheartocean on: June 19, 2009 03:13:38 PM
Dan no longer felt this shirt was flattering so I was given permission to destroy it as I saw fit. I trimmed it down to fit me better, serged the sleeves and added some nifty appliques.

haha sometimes I'm 12

oh yes and before. It probably looks exactly as you thought it would.

thanks folks. C+C welcome.

16  Shirts of Utmost Rockin-ness: Skulls and Tattoos! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by stellaheartocean on: June 19, 2009 03:02:00 PM
Hey folks! I have officially used Butterick 6085 to death. It's perfect for showing off these rad Alexander Henry prints. Just some of the fruits of my labours, bad self-photography to follow:

"Astral Skulls" - because the only way to make skulls cooler is to put them in space.

"Tattoo" - very self-explanatory. I altered the sleeves a bit to make them more fitted and a bit longer.

OH NOES I didn't line up the fabric at the button band, I'm a bad person

Thanks for looking! C+C welcome.

17  4 Stitched bracelets. Loom woven, right-angle weave and square stitch in Beads: Completed Projects by stellaheartocean on: May 22, 2009 01:47:19 PM
Hi everybody! I don't post in this thread very often, but I love looking at everyone's gorgeous work! I hope you like mine Cheesy

I made this argyle panel on a loom, for a light experiment in my high school photography class (a loooong time ago). I sewed to a piece of leather and added snap buttons to make this cuff. 3 years out of high school I still wear it all the time!

The base of this bracelet is a plain right-angle weave, the neon loops were added afterwards. I used a big tacky rose bead as a toggle. Yes, it is very blinding. Which is why it is awesome.

Just a simple square stitched bracelet using some size 6 beads. Someone on Craftster made one just like it and I was very inspired! I also finally used my nice sterling slide clasp for it.

I was fooling around one day and came up with this neat stitch - I just wish I could remember how I did it! The blue beads are size 10s and the green beads are 6s.

Thanks for looking at my stuff! C&C welcome.

18  New Look 6621 - poofs and ruffles and summery silliness in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by stellaheartocean on: May 05, 2009 10:46:30 AM
I think I've officially used this pattern to death. Oh my.

View B, made out of an old sheet I bought at Value Village. I made this when I was feeling a desperate need for something cute and girly. Puff sleeves did the trick. Apologies for noticeable underpants

View C. I've definitely posted this one before, but here it is again.

This one is mostly View C, with several modifications. The sleeves are completely fudged, as I was rapidly running out of fabric. I added the ruffles in an attempt to make the neck lie flat...I'm just as surprised as you are that it actually worked. I just really wanted to use these happy fabrics I found in the basement:)

A close-up of the ruffley lacey details:

Thank you, I hope you enjoyed.

19  Some Top-down Raglans in Knitting: Completed Projects by stellaheartocean on: April 12, 2009 01:14:56 PM
A very basic sweater. The chunky yarn and the horizontal stripes make it kind of...horizontally enhancing? But that's ok. Because clearly I am very happy about this sweater. Made with Nashua Handknits Equinox Stripe.

Moda Dea Ticker Tape jacket. Bascially the Anthropologie capelet with longer sleeves. Totally awesome

Thank you Smiley

20  Simple Tops and Dress - Flowers and skulls! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by stellaheartocean on: April 12, 2009 12:52:23 PM
So I've pretty much used Burda 8517 to death...This pattern is so cute! The tops actually call for a drawstring under the bust, but I find that sort of thing just kinda makes me look fat (which I am definitely not). Onto the goods:
View A, gross polyester remnant but very cute regardless

View A again, awesome rayon my mom bought me when she went on vacation. (If you live in Vancouver...you have DRESSEW! I'm so jealous!) haha terrible photo

View C, the reason I bought the pattern. I've had this skulls and roses print for a while and knew I wanted it to be a dress, I was just waiting for the right pattern to come along. It looks kind of Christmas-y, I think. Especially with the red sash. I wore it to a holiday party Cheesy

This is a really easy pattern, it's made for beginners but would also be fun for a more experienced sewer just looking for something fast and cute. Thanks for looking!
