A Quick Style Tip: Coil-less Pins


I was searching for hijab pins online when I came across these nifty safety pins from pinzpinzpinz.com. They don't have the coil so they won't snag your scarves.. Unfortunately, the small gold ones are not available at the moment, only the bigger silver ones are. They sell at 5 for £1. You can also get them from this ebay shop for £1.50 for 10 pins :)

Salam. I've ordered these pins before and was very disappointed with them. Sure they are coil-less but every single pin had a problem that the tip wasn't sharp. There was a small jagged bit sticking out which snagged and ripped my hijab! Waste of money really.

Take a piece of sandpaper and rub it on the pin to prevent it from pulling, Insha'Allah

Check sewing/craft shoppes! I bought a box of 50 coilless safety pins from a sewing shoppe for only a few dollars. Some of them do have blunt or jagged tips, but I can either see or feel that before trying to stick them in my hijab. And there are 50 of them, so it's easy to set those aside and try another. You could even get a few scraps of fabric to test the pins before using them.

May Allah reward you, sister 'stylish muslimah'... i just discovered your blog, and have been addicted to it and a few other nice isalmic fashion blogs ever since. i can just tell that you sincerely care about your sisters in Islam... you go out of your way to provide us with information that will make it easy on us to dress properly, and still feel good and feminine... maintain our individualism/identity... and also to keep our own culture when we convert to Islam... we can use western clothes while at the same time dressing according to Islamic standards. so jazakumAllah khairan. i <3 you fisabilillah, ya ookhti!
