DIY Embroidered Cactus Hat | Popcorn and Chocolate

Embroidered Cactus Baseball Hat

DIY Embroidered Cactus Baseball Hat | Popcorn and ChocolateThis cactus baseball hat was made  on a whim but I quite like how it came out! As you know, I’m a little bit crazy about cactus and could easily be called a crazy cactus lady. When I was deciding what to put on this baseball hat, a cactus was the first thing that came to mind. Now I can wear my cactus baseball hat and carry my crazy cactus lady ego everywhere I go.DIY Embroidered Cactus Baseball Hat | Popcorn and Chocolate

Although, you don’t have to embroider a cactus baseball hat, you can embroider anything your heart desires – my heart just desires cactus, apparently.

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.

These shirts are super easy to make and do not involve any sewing cause ain’t nobody got time for that. I wish I knew how to sew complex items, but alas, my sewing abilities end at a running stitch. Even then Rose will be laughing at the shoddy job I did. Oops! Thank goodness for fabric glue! The real star of this no sew lace up shirt is the fabric glue. No no sew project would be complete without it!
