How do you remove the label from inside a snapback without tearing or stretching the stitch?
As you can see, I attempted to remove the label but then realize that it will mess up the threading and eventually come a lose.Can you post a pic of the label you're trying to remove?
I'm guessing you're trying to remove a folded satin label, similar to a t-shirt label? When we've removed those, there is usually just a single straight stitch holding the label to the sweatband. If you look closely, this stitch is usually done in the same color and in-between the other threads. However, I've seen it run almost on top of the other stitches as well.
When I get home, imma take another photo. That white stitch actually intertwines with another stitch that goes around the cap. So its hard to really tell if that is a single thread holding the label in place.See that white thread at the top of the label? All you have to do is start from one corner and pop a couple of the stitches with pointed part of the seam ripper. Once those threads are loose, you can gently tug at the label and remove it and the threads holding it to the sweatband. Then just remove any loose threads and you're done! This won't mess up the integrity of the hat- the only time I've seen it cause any damage was on a poorly made China blank where the labels were sewn into the actual chain stitching on the sweatband, which is rare.
