Sodi’s Gems Pin Wallet & Pin Cushion Review
Sodi’s Gems is a brand is a small business run by the very sweet Sodi who makes handmade solutions for Hijabis as well as wall hangings.
Uzma Chaudhri, the lady whose Hijab Styling Masterclass I attended in 2017 very kindly gifted us some wrist pin cushions along with loads of other goodies to help us on our Hijab Styling journey.
For me, the course was a chance to help me get back on my feet after my Stroke and add another skill to my side job as a Makeup Artist but what I didn’t anticipate was the fatigue resulting from my Stroke being harder to handle.
However, I continued following Sodi on Instagram and keeping in touch with her since then and Mashallah she remains the same bumble, kind and generous soul she is now.
When I went away on holiday to Rome in April, I stashed my pins in my jewellery box whilst travelling. It was only after I came back I found out about the Sodi’s Gems Pin Wallet and was writing about Eid Gifts from a small business that I found out about them.
She very kindly sent me a Pin Wallet to feature in the post and I was able to share this gem in my Hijab Hand Luggage packing tips post as well.

The pin wallet comes with some pins already inserted, and a beautiful ribbon clasp to tie your pin wallet in place.
I LOVE this scissor design but there are quite a few others on Sodi’s website.
It’s incredibly light and compact and would hold pins of all shapes and sizes but I wouldn’t overstuff it especially when travelling.
It’s great to slip in your handbag as well as your hand luggage.
HOW MUCH IS IT?
The Pin Wallets retail for £10 and does not include postage and packing.
All dimensions for the pin wallet are shown on the website.
WRIST PIN CUSHION
Sodi’s Gems Wrist Pin Cushion comes in a variety of colours, Uzma very kindly gifted me the plum Banarsi fabric.
This wrist pincushion is a great tool when you’re in a hurry and need to get your Hijab on quickly and if you’re like me and have a variety of pins already on your pin cushion, it makes styling a breeze!
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

WOULD I RECOMMEND?
There’s a few gifts I recieved as a newly wed that I still use to this day that I got from my friends, and I think Sodi’s Writs cushions and pin wallets would make excellent gifts for yourself and friends and family.
For a Hijabi bride, a beautiful scarf and the pin wallet would make a beautiful and thoughtful gift.
For a budding Hijab Stylist, the wrist cushion with a few pinwheels would be an excellent addition to their kit.
And for a new HIjabi, a Pin Cushion with a beautiful scarf and a sweet note would be an amazing introduction to life as a Hijabi and a memorable and cherished gift.
Of course, I would recommend this product!
