Painting on Shaylah

Khaleejia said:

I've been feeling creative lately, so I finally did what I wanted to try long time ago... and that is painting on a headscarf - shaylah. I've seen hand-painted scarves and abayas  on some women, in abaya shops and on many khaleeji forums, for example:
I bought the nessary equipment from Lulu hypermarket: acrylic paint for fabrics, brushes and a wooden frame. I also got plain shaylas and hot fix crystals.  Here's what I made :-)


I enjoyed the process but  it was a bit tricky to properly adjust the crystals without spoiling the painting or the shaylah.    I gave these scarves to the young girls in my family :)
