Does any one know of any cute toddler or infant boys patterns? Or at least unisex?  I keep looking but they are all for girls!!

Burda has some cute boys clothes.  And you can dress them up a bit.  I do stuff like make the pants pocket with a special fabric (pirate themed cotton for one), and then make a button up shirt in that same fabric. Voila! Cutesy outfit.  I only have one child, a boy, and I always struggle with that, so I feel your pain.  But Burda has the best ones that I have seen so far.  You can do a real thorough search either at the Burda site, or check out SewingPatterns.com which offers all of Burda, and many others.

i agree that Burda seems to have the best stuff, though i haven't done much looking either. also, if you are looking too see how patterns look all made up by real people, patternreview.com is a great site. i think you can search on pattern numbers as well as terms such as "boys pants."

Have you tried Ottobre?

http://www.ottobredesign.com/

Take a look at Spring or Summer 2007 (I forget) there are some really cute things. 
I have a little boy too and it is hard.  Some nice things are simple tunics in unexpected fabrics like a very small floral / Liberty style(hush don't tell DH!) paired with really rugged pants, etc...  Or simple shapes but layering loud colour combination.

the latest simplicity has come out with some new boys/men's patterns. they are usually cheaper than burda and easier to get than ottobre. there's not much but they are coming along. i have 2 boys and i think i'll try making some of the new simplicity for them.

Even though it has already been said, I must chime in and say Ottobre magazine is terrific! I have all boys and was very frustrated finding little boy patterns.  I also made a post on sewing world (now no longer on the web) and ottobre was suggested to me.  I ordered it and have been thrilled ever since.  Now that my boys are a little older ottobre has very up to date and trendy patterns for boys (however the toddlers stuff is so cute I wish they were still little) that you will just not find in the big 4 magazines.  I use burda, but I still find ottobre to be for hip.
