I generally have a harder time coming up with homemade (or at least home-customized) gifts for our little boy friends than their female counterparts. I’ve never been brave enough to try to machine-embroider directly onto baseball caps, but after watching a few online tutorials recently I decided to give it a go. Basically you stitch the hat to the stabilizer that’s already in the hoop, do the embroidery, then pull out the basting stitches. I did four hats for upcoming birthdays and one was crooked, but I’m hoping it doesn’t show on a moving 3-year-old. I’m happy to have another boy gift in my crafty arsenal!
