I had to think really hard for what I was going to make my Father and Brother-In-Law for Christmas. They both love golf, but what to make that was going to actually be useful?
The Golf Towel
The idea for these towels came from a tutorial I found here. From there I basically went my own way. Though I think her idea of the corner is good, my husband – who also likes golf – thought it might not be so useful.
I used an absorbent bath towel with a chevron print for the back and some manly looking prints for the front.
These are super-easy to make in batches of 4 towels, or 2 of each as I did.
Mini Tutorial: 1) Cut your towel into 4 equal pieces (cut once lengthwise and once width-wise). 2) Cut your fabric to match the size of the towel quarters. 3) Place both pieces right sides together and sew, leaving a 3″ opening on one side. 4) Turn right side out, iron, topstitch close to the edge all of the way around (and closing the opening). 5) Add a large grommet in one corner and you are done!
I was very proud of the “You made these!” response from my dad and brother on these. And now…for my collection of custom Michael Miller golf head covers. Go get ’em! Only three months until golf season.
Thread Riding Hood continues to amaze. As a recipient of the black-&-white checkered towel showcased above, I must tell you that I cannot wait for golf season to return. My only challenge will be soiling said towel as I clean off my clubs. Oh well, at least I will look good doing it. Thanks again Thread!
