Easter Egg Golf Towel
June Scroggin of Junie Moon designed this tutorial after noticing that most golf accessories are boring and/or masculine. This Easter egg golf towel is fun, feminine and practical. One side of the towel is chenille for scrubbing golf balls and clubs and the other side is for drying. Celebrate spring with this unexpected accessory, whether or not you use on the golf course.
- 1 piece of cotton fabric (I used a mid-weight decorator fabric that’s washable) approximately 20-inches square.
- 1 piece of chenille (or terry toweling) fabric in the same size
- 1½ yards of cotton twill tape ¾-inch to 1-inch wide in a color complementing your fabrics
- Thread to match fabrics
- Water-soluble marking pen
- Dritz Grommet Kit, 7/16-inch
- Metal golf towel (or shower) hanger
- Cut your fabrics into an egg shape, approximately 13-inches wide by 18½-inches in length. The smaller top part of the “egg” will be the top of your towel. I just drew a free-hand egg shape with a water-soluble marking pen.
- Place fabrics with wrong sides together. Pin in place. Stitch 1/8-inch from edge to secure.
- Fold twill tape in over the edge of your towel, pinning in place as you navigate around the circumference. Sew close to edge of tape (towards main body of towel). You can sew by machine or hand. I chose the latter as I wanted the stitches to be invisible.
- Following grommet instructions, insert grommet at the center of the top of the towel about ½-inch away from the bottom edge of the twill binding trim.
- Insert your towel ring and attach your pretty new towel to your golf bag. Then get outdoors and enjoy springtime with a great round of golf.
