Last Minute 1 Hour Dopp Kit {tutorial}

2015 December 21

Update 2020-09-17: Since Craftsy is not available anymore – please find the tutorial on the Way Back Machine by clicking the link below:



Needing a super-quick gift to sew up? This project suits the manly giftee in your life perfectly! Of course, we know how hard it is to find sewing projects for men – though or course you can make it for women or kids too.

It takes only an hour, including cutting – seriously – not kidding… You start with 3 large same-sized rectangles and 2 small same-sized ones. I was so happy when I figured out how to make it fully lined, no exposed seams and fat-quarter friendly! I hope you love it too.

This project posted up on the Craftsy sewing blog last Thursday, and I was thrilled to have someone already make a few for her grandsons. Yippee! Makes my day every time I see something posted that one of you has made from a Thread Riding Hood tutorial.

    Love the French seam! I make mine with a handle that goes from one corner to the other which doesn’t allow for the French seam but this would make it that much neater! Thank you!

    Thanks so much Sherri! I’ve made 3 now. This was such perfect timing as I was scratching my head about what to make for the men in my life.

    Do you have a way to get this pattern now that bluprint is no longer functioning?

      Great question Brooke! I will be looking into this and will try to post it in the near future.

    I’d love to try the Dopp Kit project, but the links go to Craftsy, which is no more. Any way you could update this page?

      Hi Debbi – I think I’ve emailed it to you, but I’ve also updated this post to include a link (check the top of the post) if you still need it.

    I’ve made several for myself and gifts. Everyone loves them. Can’t make them as quickly as you :)

      I’m so glad it’s a winner Julie! I made a lot to get that fast :)
