Customize your own trucker hat with fabric! This floral trucker hat DIY will show you how with a template to download!
I love the look of trucker hats, especially in the summer! But they are a little plain, so this hat is an amped up version! Since you can use any fabric, it’s a great way to showcase a favorite print!
I got new glasses! They’re fake ones, “fashion frames” even though I do wear glasses. Sometimes I just want to wear fakes ones and keep my contacts on. I’ve been searching for the perfect frame forever and I think these might be it! Not too bulky, not too small, not too big. These are really lightweight and I love them.
These could be so fun for a bridal party or family reunion. And they would be the PERFECT favors for a quilt retreat!
But anyways, this post is about my new DIY floral trucker hat! I’ve just been floralizing everything possible lately and the blank canvas front of a simple trucker hat was calling my name. I got this plain trucker hat (affiliate link) on Amazon, they have tons of blank hats in all sorts of colors.
And then I used a scrap of knit fabric to cover up the white part of the hat. I stitched it on with a little hand sewing.
(It was super windy so my hair is a mess!)

Floral Trucker Hat DIY
I used knit fabric for this – you can use either woven or knit but knit will work a little bit more smoothly.

DIY Custom Trucker Hat Tutorial
Use a 1/4″ seam allowance.
Print the free download and print at 100% or DO NOT FOLD.
Cut out 1 piece of fabric on the fold.
Align the pattern over the part of the fabric that you want to show – like a big floral part.
Take out the pins and open up the fabric.
Sew the two top pieces together in the center with a dart. Be sure to fold the fabric with right sides together.
Press under 1/4″ all the way around.
Optional: sew a baste stitch around the outer curve 1/4″ from the edge to help you press the fabric over.
Start sewing at the very top of your hat. Slip stitch the fabric on all the way around.
Use pins to keep it in place as you hand sew the fabric to the white part of the hat.
Keep stitching until you reach the top again!
I’m not sure I will ever be over floral, so I hope you don’t get sick of it!
