Every new cook needs an apron. Make it a DIY ruffled apron - using adorable prints and college-prints - and you've got the perfect accessory for a tailgate party or first apartment housewarming gift.

If you can sew a straight line, you can make this project in an hour or two, using a dish towel and fabric scraps. On the following pages, you'll find the list of supplies, tips on finding college fabric and instructions for two versions of the apron, full-length and waist-tied.

Psst, if you're contemplating making this apron as a housewarming gift for your favorite new apartment dweller, pair it with a great cookbook for 20somethings, a DIY family cookbook and a whisk or similar tools for that starter kitchen.
