Off to JoAnn's we went so that he could pick out the fabric of his choice. He found a brown terry cloth, and a stripped one to match.
I used an old dish towel and the hubby's eyeballs as a guide for how big to cut my pieces. I put my pieces right side together and sewed all around them with a 1/2" seam allowance (you can use any seam allowance). Don't forget to leave a small opening to turn it right-side out.
Here is a picture of it while it is still inside out:
Don't forget to trim your corners. At this point I may have forgotten to take a picture due to the fact that when I trimmed my corners, I also trimmed off the tip of my thumb. Never fear, it has healed and feels a lot better!
At this point, turn it all right-side out and push out your corners. Sew the opening closed, and you will notice your towel billows because it is two layers. What I decided to do was to sew down all the brown stripes the length of the towel. This holds the two layers together. If you use fabric that is not like mine, your stitches will show. This wouldn't bother me, but I wanted to let you know in advance in case something like that bothers you. I used brown thread, so my stitches don't show. Another option would be to sew a giant "X" shape on the whole towel.
Now it is time to add the grommet. Puncture a hole in the fabric and put your grommet pieces together and hammer.
We weren't sure what to use to attach the towel to the golf bag, but I found one of these old binder rings, and that did the trick.
Hubby liked the golf towel so much, that I ended up making one for his dad (my father-in-law). Talk about a great Father's Day gift too.
I will be linking up to these parties this week.
