Bullion Crest Baseball Cap

By Milton

 

Transform a plain baseball cap to something a little bolder with the addition of a bullion crest. The crest can transform a simple cap to something that carries a sense of bold maturity. Crests come in such a broad range of themes; it¹s easy to find one that suits you or your loved one best.

 

Materials:

 

Directions:

  1. Apply some Unique Stitch fabric glue to the center of the crest, then center the crest onto the front of the hat.
  2. Pin the edges of the crest down with straight-pins and set the hat aside to dry for about 30-45 minutes.
  3. Thread your needle sew from the inside of the hat so that the knot at the end of your thread is hidden. 
  4. Stitch around the edge of the crest, removing the pins as you go. Remember to be careful of the inner lining sweatband that most baseball hats have. You don¹t want to sew that down.
  5. Finish off your stitches on the inside of the hat and you are done!
