9-8-2013 * This is a gift for one of the farmers that visits my office. I made him a summer one and he asked for a winter also. The design (Tractor) is a freebie from Brother website. Was all done in a 5x7 hoop (pinned & masking tape combo plus tear away in hoop and 2 pieces floated under...FIESTA ;D

LOL Loralye...it gets on my nerves sometimes when it does not stay down like I want. However, after watch a You Tube video with a young lady with patience to make sure stuff stay out the way allowed me to have patience with this one :) However; I did break a needle starting because I didn't have the brim flat. This is when I used the masking tape to tape it down...FIESTA ;D *2U

You did a great job on this hat.
This may not be exactly how you did it, but for anyone interested in embroidering on a hat using a regular hoop, here is a tutorial I found some time ago. Scroll down for the new link.

This is really impressive! I'd love to see a pic of where that hat was 'opened out'. Could you perhaps tell us more?

What is that stitched on? I was just thinking the other day -- can you embroider over a seam, and look at you!

It's a baseball hat (Cotton). I now look for hats that can open out and is not bulky in the seams. This hat I got from the Dollar Store and it's nice to stitch on ;D *2U
