How to make a cactus baseball hat:

  1. Start by drawing your design onto your hat using an embroidery pen (don’t worry it washes off).DIY Embroidered Cactus Baseball Hat | Popcorn and Chocolate
  2. Next, thread your needle with your embroidery thread and begin filling in your design. I used a simple stitch by starting on the back of the hat and pulling the needle through to the front and then bringing the tread across the hat and back through to the back of the hat. I’m not an embroidery expert so I don’t know the proper lingo.DIY Embroidered Cactus Baseball Hat | Popcorn and Chocolate
  3. Continue to fill in your design. Once you are done tie off the thread on the back of your hat.DIY Embroidered Cactus Baseball Hat | Popcorn and Chocolate
  4. To make the little flowers on the cactus I used little french knots, to find the tutorial for that click here.
