    NYLON staffers created unique, DIY projects using denim in honor of our annual Denim Issue. Check back here every day of August to see a new project.

    What you'll need:
    Denim baseball cap
    Needle and thread or embroidery floss
    Disappearing ink fabric pen (optional)
    Embroidery hoop (optional)

    Directions:
    Step 1: Plan your design. A doodle, simple graphic shape, or word can look really cool.

    Step 2: If you’re using a fabric marker, sketch out your design on the hat. The shape of a hat can be tricky to use with an embroidery hoop, but if you have a small one, place it over your design.

    Step 3: Embroider your design. If you’re using embroidery floss, your stitches will be larger and it will take fewer to fill in shapes. I used thread because I wanted to create a more detailed design.

    Step 4: Trim away any excess threads left underneath your hat and boom. You’re ready to rock it.
