When this gurl hits the thrifts, she sees all sorts of new trucker hats. 
It didn't occur to me until yesterday that I could do somethin' cute with one.

Step 1:

This is what I started with. 
Brand new, never worn trucker hat with advertisin' of some sort.

Step 2:

I pulled out some fabric I recently found and went to stitchin.

I discovered the easiest way to do this is to make a pattern for the center piece of fabric. 

I accomplished this by folding a piece of paper in half and cutting it in an arch down the longest side.  Then I cut it until it became the right size.

Step 3:

I used the pattern to cut out the fabric. 
I opted to keep the frayed edges of the fabric and hand stitched it to the hat. 
Then I added a bit of lace and a crocheted flower I made.

It's a pretty quick project. 
You certainly don't have to stitch the fabric to the hat and can use spray adhesive or fabric glue.

Cute idea! You could make them match outfits, or holidays! I think I'll try a Fourth of July hat first... Hmm... Flag patterns
