On Wednesday of this week, we featured our Heart Happy woman's apron. Today it's the guy's turn to shine. Made in the same longer-style French baker's cut, our men's version goes even further down that road, using a smooth white cotton twill with cream linen ties. You'll notice the cream linen matches the woman's apron ties, and we used a scrap of that apron's Paula Prass Woodland Delight in Brown Bloom for a coordinating pocket heart. You know, they say the couple who cooks together in matching Sew4Home aprons is 47% happier than the average couple. Don't even try to prove that stat.
The steps for this apron are identical to our Heart Happy Apron (Women's Version). We've listed the supplies and tools again to get your started, but once you have those ready to go, simply click to the other article for a step-by-step tutorial.
The only difference is our choice to use the same fabric for the body of the apron AND its pocket, rather than to choose a contrasting pocket fabric as we did for the woman's version.
