Here is part 2 of my roundup of sewing patterns you might consider for the Back-to-School sew along. Part 1 listed sewing patterns for girls. Part 3 will be about accessories and school supplies. And Part 4 will offer fabric suggestions.
Before I dive into the sewing patterns for boys, I wanted to point out a tip from Cynthia in the last post's comment section. Dear My Kids, one of the pattern makers I linked to, is hosting a contest this month. Make a garment from one of her patterns, submit photos and you could win 15 (yes, 15) of her patterns. Details here. (Thanks, Cynthia!)
Alrighty. Time for the boys. Can we please have a moment of silence for the sewing-enthusiast parents of boys? Talk about market opportunity, to all you pattern makers (or budding pattern makers) out there. Gee whiz. Unless you want your little guy wearing this ...
And search I did. Take a look at the cuteness here and then please leave a comment with more suggested boy patterns if you have any. I had an especially hard time finding patterns for boys older than six or so.
FYI: There will be some overlap here since the girls' post included some unisex designs.

my original post about the sew along and at good clothing catalogs for inspiration. Sometimes just doing a freezer paper stencil or an applique on a store-bought T-shirt or adding ears to a hoodie are all you need to make your little guy feel good.
And just for shits and giggles, I couldn't resist throwing this one in:
Coming next ... handmade accessories and school supplies.
