We've said it before, and we'll say it again - every man needs an apron. Especially this time of year, when you gotta keep all that gingerbread and egg nog of your nice holiday sweater. Lindy Jacoby offers this super simple tutorial, complete with pattern. The linen has a great texture here, and you could choose a darker ribbon for a more masculine look, or switch up the fabric to denim for that classic printmakers apron vibe.
The tools and materials are minimal, and make for a great weekend project that'll still be useful once grilling season returns.
