Tailgate Custom: Golf Putter Cover
I sold a repurposed hockey goalie pad wallet a while ago to someone in BC. He loved it so much that he asked if I took on custom leather requests and asked for a leather putter cover made from repurposed goalie gear. I said I'd give it a try!
First, I developed my own pattern and tested it using sample leather. This was a critical step before committing to cutting up a piece of our precious hockey leather stock!
Check out this video of the pattern and sample making process:

Once I tested that one out, I moved onto the real deal leather. Here's that video:

When our customer received it in the mail, he said "The putter cover is amazing!" That type of feedback is so great to receive as I love the challenge of new custom requests.
