My husband is an avid golfer and has a great collection of golf hats from all over the place. Oh, not a "sit them on a shelf" type of collection, he wears them. And wears them hard. I mean - he golfs when it's over 100 degrees out there, so yeah, they get kind of funky. So I wash them, he wears them ... and I wash them, he wears them ... and before we know it, they really have out-lived their usefulness. But some of the logos are just SO COOL - so what to do? I thought long and hard on that for a while, then it hit me. If I can cut logos out of t-shirts and make a really cool quilt, can't I do something with golf hat logos? ...except that they're quite crunchy and hard and embroidered on thick, thick canvas ...
So how about a bag!?!?
I cut all the logos out, grabbed some heavy-duty canvas, and started playing around.
Seriously, some are just way too cool to toss out.
I stitched them onto the canvas, grabbed a cute golf-themed cotton fab for a lining, and made a drawstring bag:
Mike thought it would be great to hold "range balls". I'm not a golfer myself, so I only have a vague idea what that means, but that's OK! I was just thrilled to have a purpose for the cute designs! :)
After I had the bag together, I thought it would be convenient to have a D-ring at the top, so Mike could hook it to his golf bag with a carabiner clip. It would have been better had I come up with that idea an hour earlier than I did ... but it all worked out.
I did some ripping, inserting, then re-stitching. It was worth it - the D-ring is very handy.
|When I inserted the D-ring, I also inserted one of my KZK tags. Upside down. |
But if it's hooked to your golf bag, and you look down on it ... it's right-side up. Right?
I used some cording and one of those cord-lock things from an old backpack. I think it's a great touch - I think I need to buy some of those; I like them!
