Huge Removable Swing Owl Tree Wall Decal Sticker for Baby Nursery
Huge Removable Swing Owl Tree Wall Decal Sticker for Baby Nursery
Offered by Mestall (Ship from HongKong)
Price: 4.27

1.0 out of 5 stars I expected the colour to be pastel and sweet looking as in the photo but when it arrived, 2 July 2014

I expected the colour to be pastel and sweet looking as in the photo but when it arrived, the whole thing looks brighter in colour, which makes it look 'cheap' once placed on the wall. After less than 24 hour, some leaves, birds and an owl started to roll up! I tried peeling but the paint on the wall came off along with the sticker. I have to spend more now for a new paint in order to remove the whole decal sticker. What a waste of !

5.0 out of 5 stars The book comes in with good paper quality, 2 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Gorgeous sewing ideas in my opinion. The book comes with good paper quality. Photos are 'yummy' and make you want to start sewing right away! Some ideas plus choices of fabric are a bit different and unique from usual. From feminine to Gothic, the choice is yours! There are 19 projects to choose from, i.e. glasses case, mobile case, jewellery box, sewing kit and the rest are 15 different ideas of clasp purses. Useful tips and techniques for a novice especially. Instructions are clear and easy to follow. The sewing patterns are in full size which is bonus. Among my favourites are, Pretty Heart Purse, Bird Cage and Kokeshi. All in all, an excellent book!

1 out of 5! I have to spend more money now to get it enlarged to different sizes for my nieces and nephews range from age 2 to 9. What is the point of having lovely designs when the sewing patterns are not user friendly!

1.0 out of 5 stars Crap!, 23 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is actually a story where, you are given five 5 tickets to proceed with each chapter of the story. In order for you to advance, you need to purchase more ticket to go on. In other words, money is involved here, no doubt the download was free. I have used all the 5 tickets and deleted it off my kindle. A whole lot of rubbish really and if I can give no star, I would! You are better off playing Free Sims on kindle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superbly Done!, 24 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is way better than Lisa Lam's...almost glossy paper, very well organised and there is no need to jump pages in searched of tips and infos! Mallalieu did an excellent job helping beginners understand the fundamental of bag making. It is still a bargain for the advanced group as just like the book says, one simple pattern is all you need to create a bevy of bags, from totes to backpacks to weekenders. Unleash your creativity, the imagination is yours! They are 10 types of bags to try in total and each is graded with beginner, advanced beginner, intermediate, confident and beyond. It is full of techniques, tips and tricks. Lots of photos to accompany your 'journey'. A definitely 5 out of 5 for it! Beginners, grab this book, you will not regret it! Thank you Amazon for the prompt delivery.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!, 16 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First of all, a big thank you to the seller, for a prompt reply and a superbly fast shipping! Item is as described. Disc works fine.Seller is highly recommended and I would not hesitate to purchase in future. Was on the game for 6 hours straight last night and must say, it is a fab game! Controls and story line is a little different from the other Sims families. The game requires you to fulfill your sims's 'wants' in order to move to make progress. I like it where they used the term 'want' rather than wishes, etc. I can see it keeping myself occupied until Sims4 is out...all in all, am glad I took the risk of trying out, "The Sims Castaway Stories"... and an excellent transaction!

Everyday Handmade: 22 Practical Projects for the Modern Sewist

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Projects!, 2 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I gave it 4 stars simply because, the 'help' link given on how to adjust the size of the printing did not work at all. Mine is the kindle version. BY THE WAY, THERE IS A WAY TO ENLARGE THE PICTURES ON KINDLE, JUST PRESS FEW SECONDS LONGER ON THE PHOTOS AND A BOX WILL POP UP WITH + ICON ON THE RIGHT TOP. Click on it and the photo will become larger. The projects in this book is nothing new to an intermediate or advanced level but perhaps it is more down to the creativity side of it that made me want to purchased it in the first place. For instance, I have being sewing for 2 and a half years now, and yet it never did occur to me to sew covered button as such on a front part of a bag as a decoration! This is among the best sewing book so far this year as it contains lots of cute and lovely ideas to sew.

Price: 4.37

5.0 out of 5 stars Fab Videos!, 8 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You know what they say, learning through vision is the best method! I I have the book, 'The Bag Making Bible' by Lisa Lam herself but I thought enhancement through videos would help provide best results for myself. The length of the DVD is 46 minutes. Lisa shows you how to add zippers and metal closures to your handmade bags. It covers flush zipper pocket, top edge zipper, concealed top edge zippers, hold to install magnetic snaps and grommets. If you already have the book and great at reading line by line to achieve results, you probably dont need this dvd. Shipping was fast. Thank you! All in all a good buy in my opinion.
