Any golfer would appreciate a new set of golf club covers. They protect the clubs and keep out moisture as well. These directions are easy and quick. You could have a whole set made up in an afternoon.
The example here is for a "driver" which is the largest of the clubs. You can adjust the size of the cover for the others by reducing the width of your pattern slightly.
Denim Duck or canvas Vinyl Upholstery fabrics
1 yd. of fabric
1 yd. of lining fabric
Your pattern piece for the front and back of the covers will be 12" long x 6" wide each with a rounded top. You will need two of these. One for the front and one for the back.
Side piece is 3" wide x 32" long. Cut one for each cover.
Each cover will have a front, a back and a side piece. 3 in total.
Cut 3 pieces the same size as the cover pieces. These can be cut from scrap fabrics or quilted fabric.
With wrong sides together sew one front to one lining front with 1/4" seam allowances.
Repeat this step with back and side piece. This is an important step so don't skip over it.
Now is the time to embroider the club number on the front piece. If you have an embroidery machine this will be easy. If not, then a simple satin stitch will look fine.
An alternative to this stitching is to buy adhesive numbers and sew them on. They are available at most fabric/craft stores.
With right sides together, stitch one side to one front. Start at bottom, stitching up one side, over the top and down the other side. Now, repeat this step with back. Trim and notch seam allowances at curved top.
Turn up a 1" hem or you can serge the bottom raw edge.
With a new set of golf balls and some tees, he'll be all smiles on the golf course.
