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 flossDisappearing 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.
