My hubby is an avid golfer, and something he has been asking me to make for him for ages is a retro vinyl cover for his driver. I decided this would be a great project to tackle this Fathers’ Day! This was my first time ever sewing on vinyl like this, and I have to say, I might very well be hooked. As I was working with the piping and vinyl, I kept thinking of the endless possibilities: belts and bags and accessories galore. I can’t wait to explore this medium a bit more!
This project is one that lets you spread you creative wings more than the average sewing project. I loved being able to embellish the front of the cover with lots of retro elements: the bold number one and abundance of pinked edges and piping all come together in a way that reminds me of an old letter jacket!
If you’re interested in making a headcover or two of your own for the fathers in your life (or for any other golfers you know), I am providing a free download of the complete tutorial and pattern pieces.
