Hijab Organizer

As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu

Ahh.. to be back posting.. blogger has been soooo annoying since I switched to 'beta'..urgh

Anyway.. here it is my dear sisters.. numero uno pain in the bootay sewing project. In August I had bought two fabric pieces and this is what I had in mind when purchasing them. A hijab organizer!! We can't deny we all need one.. how many of us have half our scarves in boxes?, shoved in any drawer space available?, under the bed? we just wear the black one because who really cares to find one that matches?

It turned out great as far as its usefulness. But as much as I hate to discourage a project.. this one was not fun! Mainly because the vinyl has to be sewn with paper over, otherwise it sticks to the machine foot and therefore won't move. (note: I have a problem with things not turning out 'perfect' *uhmm some might call it being a 'perfectionist'* ... so maybe it won't be so bad for someone else)

It's in two sections. The top to hold scarves, the bottom to hold niqaabs, gloves and even has a hijab pin cushion thingy. The lower section also detaches to fold into a 'travel' size scarf holder.. cool eh? *now to travel*

Oh I can finally start my cupcake art now!!! this should be a blast..insha'Allah.

How cute! I can tell you put alot of work into this. My hubby would love this because I took over the little closet in our room for my scarves! :)

Beta's given me quite a bit of trouble, God knows. You just gotta bear with it till it gets used to you and starts treating you nicely.

As for your pink creation: What a good idea! I would totally buy that, do you know if stuff like that is available in shops online or something? I wish I had the patience needed to use the sewing machine.

My scarves our always scattered all over, in my closet. I especially love how the bottom bit becomes a sort of bag.

That is so cute. I just use a shoe organizer over the door hanger thing...this is much purdier. :-) I wondered what happened to you...missed your posts.

Wa'alaykum as-salaam wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu my dear sisters,

Oh.. jazak'Allah for the lovely comments.... very much appreciated :)

[a}: I haven't seen anything like this online.. Wayfarer mentioned a shoe organizer.. my mom uses that too, and it does the job just as well. Insha'Allah if I ever decide to market this..you'll be the first to know..hehe

Nazia: It's so nice to have you drop by :) jazak'Allah.

Thank you again everyone for the feedback. (Not only on this post, but all the past posts.) Sorry I can't reply to everyone.. I'm on a strict cookie making schedule!

Wayfarer and Rachel: Please eat some fudge for me!! I've been dreaming about it.. yummy.
