Snazzy golf club headcovers for Dad!

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. Click below to download and/or print the tutorial. My only request is that you promise to only use this pattern for personal, non-commercial use. Thank you! :)

    This is SO awesome. Great job. I’m sure your Dad just loved these. I’ll be making some for my husband so next year when he does the golf league at work he’ll have some great looking club covers. Thank you.

    These are amazing, Amy!! I pinned it and am featuring it in my Gifts for Men today as part of my Christmas series. Amazing job! Great choice of fabrics, too. This is the least “homemade” homemade gift I’ve seen for dads. Just perfect! And my dad’s an avid golfer, so these are on my list to make!!!

    Aloha,
    Charlie
