Customizing a hat —
Transform a plain hat to a fun custom distressed hat.
•Hat (I got this one from Walmart for under $5)
•Patch (optional) I got mine from Macaloo
Start by using your rock to mark out where you want the distressing. The rock will soften the fabric making it easier to distress and leave a mark to use as a guide to know where to distress.
Once the spots are marked with the rock open your scissors & with the blade rub across all the spots you marked out and distress to your liking. Along the brim I like to make the front one more distressed showing the brim and the sides less distressed.
After distressing your hat you can add an optional patch. Place where you want it. Iron it on or pin it if it doesn’t have an iron on backing.
Sew it down and trim the threads.
You can take it even further by adding buttons other patches painting it etc be creative and make it your own.
