Some people gaga over apple gadgets. I go gaga over anything to do with me and my little studio :)
I did a simple tutorial previously on how to install the snap prong metal type button manually. You can refer to the tutorial here.
And one night I was reading my favorite sewing blog that is the Sew4Home, and they did a tutorial on how to assemble those snap easily using plier. You can check their tutorial here.
As I been using a lot of this buttons (especially on making the mei tais sleeping hood), I seriously admit that tucking and hammering those buttons is not an easy job. First, I have to do it while my kids is awake and second, since they're not sleeping, they kinda curious what mummy is doing bang-bang dang-dang in the sewing studio. So, I have to run while they keep on chasing and obviously hammering while running is hard.
So, immediately after finished reading the article from Sew4Home, I went to my favorite online store browsing if there is any of the plier up for grab. Lucky me, not only there's a lot of seller offering the desired item, but there is also one seller offer it by bidding and at that particular time, no one interested to bid (yet) and the bidding time is about to end (less that 2hours). I was contemplating to bid at first, as my paypal is no longer active (as I don't have any credit card) but having to see the item in such a great offer, I placed my bid and when I wake up the next morning, I was greet by an email said that I won the plier. Yeay!
50cents bebeh. God blessed the shipping cost (however)!!!
Now, the rise Question was, how to pay? I spent hours on the net trying to find any solution if there is a way I can transfer money from the local bank to paypal. The paypal website said Yes, you can by linking the bank and paid via eCheck BUT unfortunately our local Malaysia banks does not allow such transaction. The easiest way I managed to figure out was asking someone/anyone to send me some money via their credit card. And cut the long story short, thanks to you *wink*, the item now is mine.
If time permit, I'll make a brief tutorial on how to use the plier, ok. :)
Ngee... I absolutely love my new toy!
