I have some pretty awesome family members who actually appreciate handmade gifts.  They do the pull the name out of a hat thing every year, but most of the time I opt out due to finances we only buy for kids.
These tv remote caddies, were actually suggested by my Nana and Uncle Doug last year, after I made a similiar caddy for my cousin Jake for all his game controllers. 
Since I was a little short on fabric, I put pockets on both ends, so they don't need to be tucked.

Nana's pretty green caddy

Aunt Paula's caddy is reversible

Uncle Doug's remote caddy is actually made from a pair of stained khaki pants that I decided to dye black, but they came out a dark blue, and I decided to hack them up for fabric. 

Just another action shot

Thanks for taking a look, Happy Holidays!

And now here's the tutorial.  Please forgive, crappy camera = crappy tutorial.

Fabric Needed:
(1)  28 x 10 outer layer
(1) 28 x 10 inner layer
(2)  6 x 10 inner pocket
(2) 4 x 10 outer pocket

Creating the Pockets:
Hem (1\2) top of each 6 x 10 and 4 x 10

Attach the pockets to the inner layer by sewing the bottoms of the pockets right side up.

On the wrong side of the inner layer, mark your pocket channel. 
Sew the pocket channel thru all three layers.

Attach the outer layer to the inner layer (now with pockets attached), right sides together.
Sew all but one side.

Pull inside out and carefully tuck and sew the last side.

If you want a little more detail and strength, then sew a seam around entire caddy.  I do suggest you do this extra step if you are not using an upholstery fabric.

If my stepmom didn't have a ton of furniture crammed against all of her other furniture, this would be a perfect dad gift!!  Unfortunately there's a fireplace on one side of his favorite TV chair and a table against the other side...  Undecided   These would make excellent gifts though!  Did you follow a pattern or just make it up?

You could still make him one, he would just have to use the pockets on the inside and not the outside. Grin
I was unable to find a pattern online for these, so I kinda just combined what I learn from wallet tutorials into making these. I plan on making another today. I will try and remember to take pictures for a tutorial.
