Lacy 'n Creative by Khaleejias

  Khaleejia said: Zikr Allah & Solli ‘ala Nabii!
I love being creative time to time. And i feel very good when this creativity can be useful and inspire others. ‘Cause It really annoys me when people blindly follow the imposed mass fashion taste. Who doesn’t spend time on selecting beautiful fabrics and patterns while choosing clothes. And the most of time people just do not have enough good offer to perform their best choice. That’s  why being able to make  your own design is a great additional way to represent your beautiful and unique taste.
The question is what to use to start. Some learn knitting(personally not addicted), others learn tailoring, and  i suggest you here one of the easiest and beautiful way of clothing decoration – lacy ribbons, laces, beads, brooches and other staff that you can easily find in your home or any  specialized store)))

HOW TO…00laces

 dina_manzo_flower_brooch_nude_and_black rose-lace the next big handmade lacy flower can be used for a huge flower clip that is used under sheilahs(Gulf/khaleeji look). But you will have to make 2 same size parts of the lacy flower  and than attach to them  a hairclip  itself. Sew it to the parts or put it on any strong (for textile) glue:

All praise is due to Allah, and Allah's Peace and Blessings be upon His Final Messenger,his pure family, his noble Companions, and all those who follow them with righteousness until the Day of Judgment.
