If you take a peek into my closet, you will immediately see my collection of oversized straw hats. They are my favorite accessory for the summer and instantly make almost any outfit beach ready. I have been seeing quirky, vacation themed script straw hats all over Instagram lately and thought the detail was such a fun way to update one of my hats. You can easily do this at home in just a few steps.
1. Write your favorite vacation themed word or phrase in cursive across the brim of the hat using a colored pencil.
2. Thread the needle with the yard. Then, hand sew along the cursive word/phrase (making each stitch about ½” long).
3. Continue hand sewing along the whole word or phrase.
4. Hand sew along the word/phrase again in between the original stitches covering your colored-pencil script.
