As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu

Here is a not-so beneficial post for you..hehe
But I need some help with ideas, if you can please share your thoughts.

I'm looking for what words, sayings and/or images you'd like (buy) on clothing/accessories. More specific, on bags.

No.. you have no copyrights over what you post..hehe

I actually need it for bags (and maybe clothing) that will insha'Allah be sold, and all profits will go to charity.

Mashallah you're the most unique sister ever! :)
Hafsa told me about your nomination for the Brass Crescent Awards- that's simply awesome :D :D :D

!! It sounds like you have a really interesting project in mind!

I think that I personally would be attracted to something that is quirky but not too cliche or overdone. For example, a picture of a heart or cupcake followed by the word "sweet" is so done to death, that it wouldn't interest me at all.

What I do think would be cool is a picture of an unusual object.. um.. say an avocado or a sweet potato or something. And a funny and unexpected word like "grumpy" under the sweet potato. hahaha. Nah I have weird taste; I don't think most people would like that XD

Ok seriously though, I think that a mosaic made from different little squares of interesting fabric (coordinating or clashing with the background) would be a really neat idea. You could say... make an apple from different little squares of reddish fabric and work out a "bite" with the mosaic design. Kind of like large scale pixel art.

Or does it have to follow a religious theme? In that case I think designs such as the ones done my muslimtees.com are really tasteful and interesting. If those guys made messenger bags I think they'd sell like crazy. Oh and I also think that Islamic calligraphy would look really cool all pixelated, but maybe that would be really complicated...

If I think of something else I'll tell you for sure.

As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmtu Llahi wa Barakatuhu my dearest sisters,

Jazak'Allah for stopping by.

Humairah thank you for the wonderful comment. I had no idea I was nominated..oooh, that's nice surprise. I wish I could thank the person who nominated me.

Gulnarita.. wow, masha'Allah. You are so helpful, thanks a million! I love your ideas, seriously.. I'd buy a grumpy sweet potato!!..hehe

It doesn't have to have a religious theme.. just what YOU would like. So I don't know if someone would like a bag (etc.) with a religious theme happening. I would, depending on how it looked, or what it said.

Thank you again for the feedback. Insha'Allah once I get things going, I shall let you know all about the charity etc. At the moment I'm busy with work :)

Wa'alaykum as-salaam
Love Farhana

Salam Alaikum Sis Farhana :)

Ok, my addition to your ideas would have something to do with my mood today...

I would have easily worn a shirt today that said "Just Human Underneath It All!" with a photo or logo that portrays that idea stamped on the sleeve...

Maybe a metallic outline logo of something like a bird with a hanging chain from its mouth holding a small "peace" sign or heart or something that portrays a good quality...

Maybe the word SMILE animated letter by letter..Like the S could be an object shaped like an "s", and so on....

hope i helped a lil bit.....

Reemas, jazak'Allah for dropping by, it's wonderful to see a new face. Oprah.. that's interesting, I would have never guessed people would like that, so thank you for sharing :) And I shall send your website to anyone I think may be interested.

My dearest Sultana, always a pleasure to see you here. Jazak'Allah for the ideas.. haha, I very much agree with the "just human underneath it all!" I'd sport that too. My sister made an interesting point today.. it's okay if people stare, but can we not just stare with a smile :).. hehe

Such great ideas people (thank you so much!).. you have my brain working over-time :) isn't that feeling great.. alhumduliLlah. (makes me feel productive even when I'm not doing anything..hehe)

Wa'alaykum as-salaam
Love Farhana
