This summer, brighten your mood and stay on trend with accessories featuring birds, flowers, and insects. One way to do this and also keep your scarf excellently secured is through Hijab pins.
Whether you choose pins featuring tiny dragonflies, butterflies or roses, doing a search online will reveal a number of sites that carry a vast array of styles and deliver anywhere in North America (http://www.starscarves.com/hijabpins.html#top, http://urbanmuslim.netfirms.com/new/shop, http://www.almuhajabat.com/catalog/15) or the United Kingdom (http://pinzpinzpinz.co.uk, http://www.thehijabshop.com/hijab_pins). It's usually a better deal to order in bulk, so divide the order among your friends and family.
Another option is to pay a visit to a fabric and crafts superstore like Michaels, where you may be inspired to make your own straight beaded Hijab pins.
At such stores, keep an eye out for coil-less safety pins in the knitting section, so your square scarves don't get caught in them when the safety pins are kept on for a long time.
In the artificial flowers section of such stores, get some of those extra-long corsage pins to wear with your Shaylas on the top or side of your head, preferably with an underscarf. They often come in a variety pack, so you'll have lots of colors in a basic design to choose from. Corsage pins work even better with Hijab than the shorter straight pins that are used in sewing.
Have fun with your Hijab pins as they're both practical and pretty, but do keep modesty in mind and don't go overboard with the crystals.
