DIY plaid hijab with lace pleated applique

25 Oct

Assalaam Alaykum,

It’s been a while since my last post and the reason for that is MY CLOTHING LINE!!! It’s been so insane running around trying my best to get everything done on time and in the end it looks like I’ve missed my fall deadline. But Allhumdulillah everything is going well. So as of now I won’t say it’ll be done by this time, because I want everything to be perfect and I don’t want to give it a time. Doing the production locally is a benefit because I can go see what’s happening and I am more hands on. And my little guy can come with!!

OKAY, moving on, I went on a hunt for unique hijab fabric, I wanted to make something different and I found this gorgeous plaid fabric in the men’s suiting side of the fabric store. I fell in love and so I couldn’t put it down. Then I went searching for lace and I found this gorgeous black lace that I used as pleats on one end of the hijab, as you see in the tutorial. With the remaining left over lace I used it as trims for cushion covers that I made. My living room needed a color boost. It turned out really nice!

FOR THIS PROJECT YOU WILL NEED:

1/2 YD FABRIC
1/2 YD LACE
SCISSORS
PINS
SEWING MACHINE

How to sew a tube or infinity scarf

5 Oct

Assalaam Alaykum,

Here is a very simple and easy to follow tutorial on how you can make yourself a homemade infinity scarf. You don’t need much, some fabric, whatever size and length you desire, pins and a sewing machine or you can hand sew this. I’ve used left over fabric that I had from a dress I made.

Have fun making this, it’s a fun and easy project for even kids!!!

Mas Salaama,
