Of all the potential man crafts, the handmade neck tie is one of my favorites. It combines everything that ManMade stands for: it's made by hand, it's something you can use everyday, it's decidely cheaper than buying one at the store, and it's uniquely masculine. While we've featured tie tutorials on ManMade before, I think this one from A Beautiful Mess is as good as any, and I especially appreciate the commitment to a soft, sleek design that's not made from super expensive fabric or silk. So it's okay, you know, if this is your first adventure with a sewing machine and you mess it up.
