Let’s face it.  Baby boy stuff just isn’t quite as exciting as baby girl stuff and I am having a lot harder time getting excited about making stuff for this little bundle.  To help rectify the situation I decided to do a little research and come up with my favorite sewing tutorials and patterns that are either specifically for boys, or gender neutral.

OK, I’m a lot more excited to get sewing now.

Do you guys have any go to tutorials for baby boy stuff?  I’d love to check them out.

    I felt the same way, when pregnant w/ my 2nd child, a boy… it was hard to get into “boy mode” w/ sewing after all those adorable ruffles! I’ve found that for my little boy, it’s fun to find cute “boy” prints and sew cool knee patches on his pants… and sewing cool toys, like playmats and robot pillows. O+S makes a really nice hoodie pattern, with a kangaroo pocket for boys that I like a lot too. Have fun w/ your little one!!!

    I know what you mean! I felt the same way in the beginning but now I love having a boy and being able to sew for him. I highly recommend looking at Ottobre for some great boy sewing patterns. Fish Sticks Designs and Peek-a-Boo Pattern has awesome boy patterns as well.

    Here are a few links to some of the favorite things I’ve made so far (I shrank the URLs): ,,

    I follow a few other mommy bloggers that I found through Project Run and Play and they have helped me see that sewing for boys is very fun! 🙂

    Aw, I think sewing boy clothes would be very fun! Mainly because there is not a lot in stores for boys. It kind of forces you to be creative. Not that I know what I’m sewing for yet…. 🙂 That hat is very cute!

    These are all too cute! The only boy pattern I’ve used is McCall’s M6016, a little button-down shirt. I like to knit for little boys– it’s so funny to see babies in old man sweater vests and the like!

    I’ve been wanting to make onesies, but he seems to be growing faster than I can get ready to cut fabric!

    Here are some cute pants:

    maybe I should try the 90 minute shirt:

    these knee-pad pants are great for crawlers:

    I’m 21 weeks pregnant with my second boy, so needless to say, I wasn’t that excited to buy clothes or to make some for boys. Girls clothes is so much cuter. But, alas, we must do what we must do eh? Well, if you don’t mind purchasing them, Joann’s has Butterick patterns on sale right now for the After Thanksgiving sale for only 99cents and there are some cute baby boy patterns there. Got 3 patterns for $3 and each pattern came w/about 6 patterns inside. Very cool 🙂 Thought you’d like to know!
