Useful gifts made of beautiful fabric

What (relatively useful) items/gifts can I make out of beautiful fabric? I'm developing a dangerous Spoonflower addiction.

I found a gorgeous fabric I know my husband would love and I'd like to make him something -- but what? And I've got a bunch of other fabric hanging around the house waiting to be used. I have more quilting cottons than anything else, but I've got other stuff hanging around too, so don't feel limited. Links to patterns/instructions are great if you've got them, but I can usually fumble my way through simple projects on my own. Something a man could use would be extra great (I don't think my husband needs a purse. well, that's not true, he totally needs a purse for his 8 million little gadgets, but I don't think he'd carry one).
I have enough throw pillows to supply a small nation, and I'm already working on a quilt (and would like some smaller ideas that could highlight a single fabric). I'm also about to make some placemats and children's hats. I have turned some fabric in the past into reusable fabric gift wrap and I have plenty of that.
