Fold your fabric in half. Pin the paper pattern to one side of the fabric. Cut around the paper pattern, through the doubled fabric so that you end up with two identical pieces.
Place the right sides of the fabric together and sew a 1/2-inch seam around three sides of the cover. Leave the bottom edge open.
Turn the cover right side out. Slip it over the head of the cover to test for fit. If the cover is too large, sew a larger seam, but always make sure the opening of the cover is wide enough to fit over the club.
Hem the raw edge of the opening of the cover. Turn up 1/2 inch of the fabric along the edge and sew in place. Sew number decals on the sides of the cover to indicate which golf club the cover fits.
