Eid Inspiration

Are you still looking for Eid inspiration? There’s still time to whip up something for your loved ones. Here’s some inspiration for ya! You could sit for hours (or days for some) searching ideas on Pinterest. I thought to give you a hand by sharing some of my favorites that I’ve discovered through Pinterest. You can find some more ideas on my Pinterest board as well. Can we say love? I […]

Counting Down Ramadan

Hi everyone! Long time no talk. I know I have been MIA for a few months, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t think about you all. Despite the fact I haven’t been sharing anything new with you, you all have been continuing to show support to Ode to Inspiration by sending me comments and emails. I truly appreciate every one of you! Thank you! Ramadan is just around the […]

Retro Inspired Patchwork Dress

Suraya was the vintage inspired, and for Susu it was retro! Actually, the dress being retro inspired is quite accidental… but I love that it does look retro! I used Anna Maria Horner’s Evening Empire Dress pattern. I had come across this pattern a couple years ago, but I considered myself a novice sewer (and still do) and didn’t have the confidence of taking it on at that time. As […]

Vintage Inspired Gauchos

It’s no secret that I love anything vintage and anything vintage inspired. A few months ago, I had received vintage style fabric as a gift from a dear friend of mine… a friend that apparently knows me well enough to even think of buying me fabric as a gift! I should add that this friend does not sew but knows good fabric when she sees it. She sent it all […]

Eid Treats & Packaging

Every Eid I enjoy making a yummy treat to pass out to my family. Each year I look for something new to make. Not only do the treats have to be yummy, but they also have to be nicely packaged. I’m a sucker for cute packaging… who isn’t! So yummy and cute are the key words. I usually have an idea of what I want to make, but this time […]

Eid Pennant Garland

Eid al-Fitr, the holiday marking the end of Ramadan, is not that far down the corner. Soon the Eid decorations will be going up! This year I made a Eid garland to go along with the rest of the decorations. I had purchased these wooden pennants from Pick Your Plum a few months ago. If you are not already familiar with Pick Your Plum, I highly recommend that you familiarize […]

Some Sponge Painting & Giveaway Winner

I’ve never sponge painted before, but I figured how hard could it be. Sure enough, it was much easier than I expected. I had bought these candle holders from Michael’s a few years ago on clearance for $.67! I use them as a part of my Ramadan decor. I wasn’t crazy about the original color, but they were not so bad that I wouldn’t put them out. This year I […]
