• For a single layer Niqaab: Cut a rectangle of fabric 13"x17".
  • Hem the two long sides and one short side.
  • Fold the unhemmed sided under 1/4", fold again 1/2" and stitch close to the edge of the fold.
  • Cut a length of 1/4" wide elastic, long enough to go around your head.
  • Pass the elastic through the 1/2" hem of the Niqaab.
  • Overlap the two ends of the elastic and stitch together firmly using tiny zigzag stitches.

**Note** Instead of elastic, ties could be added to either side of the Niqaab for tying behind the head.
