I embroidered this for my brother-in-law. I used my homemade cap hoop, for my 5x7. I couldn't get the cap to lie flat, even though I tried sticky spray on my cut-a-way, so it pinched a little (look to your left in pic). Also, I would have liked to get it closer to the seam where the bill meets the cap body, but my foot would hit the bill, so this is all I could do. My husband brought it to him so I guess he liked it, hubby didn't come back with it. It was a free design ages ago, but its still there, I believe.

Toogie, This is the one that I did with the hat hoop that my brother made for me. It's not perfect, but the hoop certainly works! The design is a logo for a band that my brother loves... I had permission from the band to make this. My brother was thrilled with this. As I commented earlier, I simply used a pointy stick to press down as I stitched close to that bill seam and that allowed me to get the design just where I wanted it. I didn't use sticky stabilizer for this one, so the outlines are a little out of whack, so definitely would do that for the next one as the top part of the design tended to wiggle a bit.

Yours looks good! I'm not sure if the opening was bigger would help me. I can't explain but if you come over, I'll show you.Thanks again and I like the band design!

Hi Toogie, I think it looks great and your brother in law likely does too. My brother made me one of those hat hoop inserts from a clipboard, and so to thank him, I did a couple of hats for him (sorry.... I didn't load them here on projects). I had a little bit of issues with the first one, but had him make the opening a bit bigger so that my foot wouldn't hit anything, and when I got close to the bill, I used a pointy stick to make sure it was as flat as I could get it. That got me closer to the bill. I'll poke around and see if I have a pic of the second hat... I know I don't have the first one... ha! Your design is bigger than the one that I used (mine was wider and not so tall), so that made a difference as well. --Sharon

It is a great design to use on that cap. We tend to be overly self-critical. I'm sure he'll love it and wear it a lot!

Great hat! I've only done one and that was in the late 1990's when I received my 3 free lessons from Husq shop. Never tried one again.

Thank you Chris was a freebie from Embroidery is Free, I think. I used it on the camo tee pee I made. I'll refresh your memory by adding the link if I can. I know you saw it there, I'm sure. Loved the dress you just made Delphi for the wedding!

You have done such a great job on this Toogie :)
Love your design, perfect colors and placement!
I know how tricky caps are....not fond of doing them myself!
Specially I find the middle seam a nightmare...didnt you have any problem with it?

toogie by toogie 13 Nov 2015

I just went slow in that area. My only main problem was this cap was so rounded, I couldn't get the fabric flat,hence,the pinch. Thanks for looking.
