Cherry on top!

I love the unique twist customized clothes can add to an outfit. Lately, one of my favorite things to decorate and wear have been baseball caps. I’m going to show you three different ways I’ve customized a plain ol’ cap. Let’s get started!

Look One

What you’ll need:


  • Baseball cap (I got mine for $2 at Michaels)
  • Fabric paint and pens
  • A pencil

How to do it:

Step One


Dream up a design, and feel free to cast around for inspiration: My hat is inspired by Tuesday Bassen’s, “Mixed Emotions Club” illustration. Using your pencil, sketch out your chosen design.

Step Two



Time to paint! Using a thin brush, apply fabric paint inside the design.

Step Three



Depending on your design, you might need paint pens to add text. Write the letters using a thin paint pen, and then go over the lines with a thicker pen. Once you’ve finished your design, you have completed your cap!
