For all muslimah loving scarves, pashmina and shawls! Let me introduce the idea that once came into my mind! I improved it a lot during several years!

Vu’a la!

You can wear this hijab without any pin!

There are two models:

  • one-piece hijab – khimar, I recommend to sew it using stretching fabric
  • and two-pieces hijab, you will need underscarf “Helika” – open, and this hijab can be sewn using any type of the soft and light fabric

 

During all this time starting from the moment when I got this idea till now I’m doing different enhancements for it, that is why there is still no sewing-tutorial is available in this blog.
[icegram messages=”5516″] Once, I really tired of using plenty amounts of pins ! Now I put on my hijab  less than for 1 min and do not torture myself with plenty ways of wearing it, twisting, turning around and so on. I have no need to iron my hijabs everyday! They do not disturb with pressure on my ears!

It can be everything clear with khimar: it is put on like khimar, and is fixed on the head with headband like khimar. But there are still some special features:

  • the possibility to make slits for the years and remove a pressure on them plus give free access to them for the headphones or phonendoscope, for example
  • the special hijab-belt, which holds your khimar when you lean down, it will not meet your face anymore
  • the possibility to wear it by covering the shoulders, or with open shoulders when needed

But two-pieces hijab has one secret! I had the issue with attaching the hijab to the underscarf, and I solved it! With SNAPS! Yes, small, not visible for others sewing snaps!  The one side of the snap is sewn to the hijab, another one – to the underscarf! And it works perfectly!

During the time of testing this kind of hijab and considering the feedback I’ve got from others, who tried them also, I have already changed several times positions of the snaps and the number of them. Today I use 7 snaps and 2 special hijab-belts )) . And I think it is already time to share the sewing tutorial.

Below please see the schema, explaining how to put the hijab on the underscarf on your head:

The pattern of the hijab of khimar has to be made according your head size. They have to be sewn using soft and light fabric. And the most difficult is to attach these snaps – very boring job! And you will need exactly underscarf “Helika” – open, because it is covering everything what is not covered by hijab and it adds minimum amount of the fabric on your head.
