Gift Ideas for Dad: Day 4

What does your dad or husband carry his toiletries in when he travels? The ratty canvas bag he's had since he was a kid? Or does he just throw his toothbrush, deodorant and razor into his suitcase? Or worse yet, try to add his stuff to your toiletry bag?

Here's a solution for all of that, and a Father's Day gift idea, all rolled into one. And the best part is, this dopp kit (or toiletry bag, or whatever you'd prefer to call it), can be stitched in just an evening, so you still have time to make it before Sunday!

This Dopp Kit pattern came from a tutorial on Lindsay's blog, The Cottage Home. The bag has a great boxy look, and the wraparound zipper makes it easy to grab what's inside. 

We paired her design with a baseball print on red and a classic plaid from the Who's on First collection by Bristol Bay Studios.

Check out the plaid on the inside and on the handle--such a classic "Dad" pattern!

Find Lindsay's tutorial to make your own dopp kit here.

See the entire Who's on First collection here, and watch the blog this summer for a sneak peek at a quilt pattern using these fabrics appearing in one of your favorite quilting magazines!

Don't forget to stop back tomorrow for our last Father's Day gift idea!
