cat daddy hand embroidered hat

Create a one-of-a-kind handmade embroidered hat for your favorite pet parent. Handwrite “Cat Daddy” with a simple chain stitch for a classic vintage vibe designed by Dennis & Andrew from the Crafty Lumberjacks.
Step 1

Handwrite “Cat Daddy” on the front of the hat with the marking pencil.
TIP: If you don’t have great penmanship, print out “Cat Daddy” in a favorite font and trace it onto tracing paper.

Step 2

Pin the tracing paper onto the hat and stitch on top of it. Once done, lightly tear the paper away.

Step 3

Pull apart two strands of floss and thread the needle. Tie a knot at the end of the two strands so everything stays put while stitching.

Step 4

Stitch the words using a chain stitch starting at the beginning of the word. Poke the needle from the back of the hat on the traced line. Go back down in the same hole, holding the loop with your other hand. Come up one stitch length forward, through the loop you made.

Step 5

Continue the stitch to make a row that looks like a chain until finished with the first word. When finished, instead of going back down in the same hole, make a small stitch over the loop and tie a knot in the back to secure it. Repeat the process for the second word.
TIP: Don’t pull the floss too tight and make sure the loops don’t get twisted as you work.
