Ok so I sew diapers and yesterday made a skirt. they are all for my 1 year old daughter though. My 5 year old son is getting sad i'm not making anything for him so I need some ideas. and links to tutorials/patterns would be helpful. I just have no clue what to make him.

asking him isn't much help cause he asked me to make him a skirt ith boy fabric. LOL

Thank you everyone for the ideas! I was thinking about making him some sweat pants because he loves them and calls them his "comfy pants" and the elastic I got for the skirts was different than what I was expecting and would work well for sweat pants or pajama pants.

I don't even sew, but I took a peek at the dragon slippers and they are so cute - there is a section just for boys at that link and there may be some great ideas there. Good luck!  

Quoting xtwistedxlovex:

Free patterns only, or paid? Tinkle Time Trainers are awesome IMO. You could use the pattern to make undies for your DS now (up to size 7) and trainers for your DD later.

I made DS a pair of dragon slippers (will find pattern tomorrow if I remember; it's free on some blog or other) and hoodie. I used an existing hoodie for the pattern and just did a seam up the back for the spikes. He also has a soft mini quilt type lovey that he insists on laying over his pillow at night, a monster to gobble his socks, and all sorts of other little things. I didn't use a pattern for most, just winged it, but I'll see what I can come up with. OH - google "montessori child apron" and you should find a free pattern for that.

Edited to add links =)

Here is a tut for a dinosaur hoodie that is very simplified; you just add spikes to one you already have. Not as tricky as creating a whole new hoodie, just a straight stitch and a bit of fabric glue.

search for children's tool belt, make him bean bags for a bean bag or hot potato game, you could make him elastic waisted pants by tracing his current pants (fold them in half trace, then fold the other way and trace that and cut out two of each...remeber to leave a seam allowance.)

A simple t-shirt with superhero trim, or oversized pjs. Or better yet, a shirt to match one for his dad? Like a simple short sleeved dress shirt.

shorts, pillow, pajama pants, simple stuffed animal

I make clothes for both my kiddos (12yo boy and 9yo girl) and he only really wants shirts and pajama pants :-)
