Hijabs & Pins
I keep my hijabs in a drawer, like so. I guess I have about 25, alhamdulillah and this drawer is just enough room. Most of the time they get all jumbled, but I'm trying to keep them neat. I organize them by size and fabric and keep the under scarves to one side.
I'd love to hang them on something like these, but I don't have the space right now.
I think the circles one would be the most slip proof, but the other two could keep them less wrinkled. I usually have to iron my hijabs before wearing them, depending on the fabric of course. Some are great and never wrinkle but pashminas and other ones wrinkle just by looking at them. Then there are the ones that are meant to look wrinkly!
These are a few of my favorites.
Let's talk pins. I recently started using hijab safety pins. I'd always used regular safety pins cause I thought the plastic part would show on hijab pins. Naseem told me you just cover it with your scarf! Duh, so they are much, much better than safety pins. More secure and most importantly don't snag on your hijab fabric.
As for straight pins, I'm a fan of the little diamond looking ones and the roses, as you can see. I saw on one blog, it's escaping me now, which, but there were bow hijab pins. Adorable.
The snowflake looking ones in the front there, I made those today! Jujey gave me the idea. I used a pair of earings, broke off the back and hot glue gunned the sparkly bit on the top of a pin! I didn't have any plain pins so I took a couple of the ones that have the little rhinestones on them, removed the stone and flattened the back part using needle nose pliers. This way there's more surface area for the glue to stick to.
How do you store your hijabs/scarfs? What about pins?
