6 Panel Hat Embroidery

Step by step guide on how I go about embroidering hats:

What you’ll need
• Snapback Hat (I used a YuPoong 6 Panel Snapback)
• Embroidery Machine (I used my Babylock Emp6)
• Tearaway Backing
• Digitized Embroidery File (I use .dst files)
• MightyHoop Frame


  1. I run a flat sample to ensure quality
  2. Change to the hat frame on the machine
  3. Have the hat frame on the hat hoop
  4. Put tear away backing first then the hat
  5. Strap in the hat and I use a clip on each side to hold the hat in place
  6. Trace the design to make sure it is centered
  7. Let the machine do its thing
  8. Put the hat frame back on the hoop
  9. Unclip the clips
  10. Remove the hat to remove the backing
  11. Start cleaning up the embroidery on the hat
  12. Take photos for business portfolio (social media – instagram @official_blvcklabel)
  13. Off to Shipping. I use a 6x6x8 box from Uline.
