Can you have a pickable attribute that does not need a separate product?

So I am also using Commerce Stock. Here is my situation:

I have 6 types of hats 3 different sizes in 2 different colors. Thats it so I have 6 products not bad at all.
Now here is where it gets tricky. I custom embroider an emblem on the hat. I need them to be able to choose them emblem from a list just like size and color. I have about 200 different options they can choose from but I don't want 1200 products as I only really have 6 that I need to track stock quantities on.

Is there a way to do this without having 1200 separate products?

I hope that makes sense. As soon as the order is placed I pull the hat they chose out of inventory and then do the embroidery on it. I do not keep each of the 1200 options in stock just the base hat which I then add the custom embroidery to.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
