Golf Club Cozy
 
With dad's day coming up I thought I'd dig up a pattern from the archives of a golf club cover I made for my father-in-law a couple few years ago. Admittedly, I don't know anything about golf, but this cozy was a special request so I did my best. I'm happy to say that Mr. Wayne Campbell was quite pleased with the finished product, and I'm hoping that the golfer in your life will be, too. Happy Father's Day! -- Vickie
