I have wanted a Angry Bird headcover for some time and about a week ago I ordered the 8" Angry Bird. I got it in the mail today and started tearing it apart. Pretty simple to do and looks great! Let me know what you think.

I ordered the 8" Angry Bird from here. About a week later, the Angry Bird arrived. I split the seam on the bottom where the red and tan join, along with the 4 red seams coming off of the tan seam. Remove all of the poly stuffing and keep it to the side. Trim the triangles that were made when you opened the angled red seams. Invert the shell and sew in a red knitted/stretch material along the tan seam and along the trimmed triangles, leaving enough of a space to sew in the club head protective tube (tube sock). This will replace the plush material removed and allow enough material for the club head to pass through. Now sew the club head protective tube (tube sock) to the back of the new rim created when you rimmed the triangles. Flip the shell back to the correct position and fill to your liking with most of the poly fill. Tack/hand sew the red knitted/stretch material to the club head protective tube. The headcover is done but you can move the poly fill around to your liking.

It sounds much harder than it is. If you take your time and pay attention (think before you cut) it takes little time.

Nice work.  Looks like it turned out good.  Be careful of the bees though.

Well, today I was shopping for bath toys for my daughter and ran across the Angry Bird plush toys at Toys R' Us. When I originally bought the 8" Angry Bird, I wanted to get the Pig with the broken helmet and there it was in 5". I thought that it would be a good size for a putter cover and picked it up.

Construction was different on this one and even easier than the driver cover. Due to the request for details, I took a few pics while making this one.

Posted Image

This is the pic of the bottom with the seam ripped to make the opening.

Posted Image

Remove the poly fill and flip inside out.

Posted Image

With the little amount of stitching needed, you can do it by hand. Some of the spots are tricky to do with a machine but it can be done.

The way I created the interior sock was to cut a piece of fabric into two long rectangular strips. The height of the strips should cover than the height of the putter (sole to top) and wrap the sole and top. So the strip should be able to wrap three of the 4 sides and have a little more room to make a seam on all 4 sides of the rectangle. The length of the strip of fabric should be 2"-3" longer than the length of the putter (heel to toe). This will allow room to wrap and seam.

Sew one of the strips to the new opening in the shell of the plush toy. You will need to have enough room on each end of the seam (shell and sock rectangle) to let the putter fit into the shell of the plush toy. It is wise to have the putter heel hook back a little past the end of the seam that is closest to the outside edge. This will let the headcover keep itself on the putter.

Once one of the sides of the interior sock is seamed to the shell, do the other the same way.

Join the two edges of the interior sock together with a seam along the heel, toe and the remaining un-stiched portion of the side attached tot he shell of the plush toy. In other words, sew all of the edges leaving long edge, of the rectangle not attached to the shell, open.

Flip everything back right side out and insert your putter. Fill with a portion of the poly fill to your liking. Once you are satisfied with the fit pull the cover off and flip the sock back out of the shell.

Posted Image

With the sock out, seam the last remaining edge. Push the sock back into the plush toy. (Hint - Flip the toe end of the sock into the center-heel portion of the sock. Then, with the sock now in half, flip the heel half into the plush toy. This makes it easier to unfold inside the plush toy.)

Posted Image

Completed headcover - bottom.

Posted Image

Completed and on the TM Tpi-23.


Observations

I would have liked for the plush to be 1/4" wider but it was not necessary. This would have allowed the shape to be a little more round and not so eliptical.

In the end, I am very happy with it.

If anyone has any questions, please feel free to post here or send a PM.

Thanks for reading,

Kyle

I made a headcover out of one of the pigs earlier this year and used it for a couple of rounds.  All of the bees on the course thought it was a giant flower or something.  They would swarm it on every tee box and the thing was covered by 5 or 6 bees at a time.  They were all trying to get nectar from it or something.  I had to park my bag pretty far from the tee box to keep the group from being stung.

I have taken them out for a couple of rounds since the last post and did not notice a bee problem. Maybe I am too bitter?

You inspired me!  I made one this weekend.  It is quite appropriate as my "Angry Bird" protects a Razr HAWK.  It makes me smile each time I see it.

I bought the red one like this, but it's the Halloween special one so it looks like the devil.  This will be my winter project, if my two boys don't destroy it first.  I'm addicted to two games, Angry Birds and Golf.

There used to be a Marvin headcover available commercially, might still be out there, but it is an older design and iirc doesn't really fit well on the 460 size drivers...

Inspired by this thread I made one myself. My favourite bird is the Black Bird!

Took the sock from my old Mizuno headcover and it fits pretty good with the colors of the bird.

The shaft and the grip also has some same colors. :)
