Road Trip Toiletry Bag PDF sewing Pattern - Make a Toiletry Bag with pockets for everything

I made a fun project this month that I get to share with you today. It's a Toiletry Bag for Dad, just in time for some Father's Day sewing. I don't know about you but the Dad's in my life are hard to sew for, but this is the perfect gift. Manly on the outside, personalized and fun on the inside.

EDITED 2/4/23: This project is was part of the Passport to Summer Sewing Series on Fabric.com  which has since gone out of business. I am so happy to report that I finally have a copy available for you to download.

I built it a little differently than I usually make a bag. The lining and the exterior fabric are layered together before sewing and the seams are all finished with bias binding on the inside.

I also used Molded Plastic zippers this time around.  I sure love how easy they are to slide open and close.

NOTES for Making the Road Trip Toiletry bag
  • The original tutorial post on Fabric.com is no longer available as they have closed their business.
  • Since making this  toiletry bag 4- 5 more times and using one for travel I decided I liked having a 2nd set of inside pockets on the inside. Cut a 2nd folded pocket and add it to the other panel before adding the zipper pocket to the front. 
  • I also decided to shorten the handle  because I didn't like how much it stuck out. 
  • I added pull tabs at the end of each zipper that are  sewn into the seam where the top zipper panel  meets the bottom panel. I made these tabs the same way as I made the handle.
