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.

Sods Gems Pin Wallet Inside

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.


The Pin Wallets retail for £10 and does not include postage and packing.

All dimensions for the pin wallet are shown on the website.


Sodi Gems Pin cushion

Sodi’s Gems Wrist Pin Cushion comes in a variety of colours, Uzma very kindly gifted me the plum Banarsi fabric.

Sodi also does a Magnetic wrist cushion perfect for Hijab Stylists too and normal pin cushions which can come in the round design or square.

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!

The Wrist Pin Cushions retail for £10 and does not include postage and packing.

All dimensions for the pin cushions are shown on the website.


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!

Have you ever tried a Pin Wallet or Wrist Cushion or would you?

    I really need to get myself a pin wallet. My pins are generally all over the place and when we went on holiday I just shoved some into the back pocket of my purse! Would be ideal for when we go on our trips

      It is a lifesaver on holiday to keep things together! And yes, I used to just shove the pins wherever I could and end up losing half of them!
