I've made them in camouflage fabric (I do live in the way south) with a Clemson Tiger Paw embroidered on the front for a "Non-preppie" friend and it was cute too, but I agree -- it is definitely a more uptight look than it sounds like you are looking for!

I agree on the Ottobre for boys.  They have really cute styles.  The tracing was intimidating at first, but it really wasn't that hard.

Thats cute. But it looks like something a well-behaved upper class preppy boy would wear and my son is a terror lol. If he wore that to church people would definitely be looking at me crazy. He just has a bad temper and runs everywhere he goes hee heeing and hoo hooing like a monkey. And half the patterns I find are preppy looking.

whoa...that's just strange...we have the same son!   Wink
but seriously, i did notice that our little monkeys wear the same size so that should make it easier for me to swap

So I'm not the only one with a bad son? We go to a pretty big church, well over 2500 people, and me and hubby teach 1st grade so we are constantly in the kids hall. I see other kids holding their parents hands walking calmly and politely greeting others as they walk down the hall. Then here comes my son buzzing by them probably trying to knock them over while trying to find a place to hide. Then here comes me not trying to knock them over but i do anyways while trying to catch my son before he gets too far away. Thus, we bought the Eddie Bauer Monkey Leash. It's super cute and his arms and legs snap together around my son and then I have the leash as his tail. My son doesn't mind wearing it at all. But my husband practically forbids me to put it on him. He's like What are people gonna think? Anyways, did I mention I watch Super Nanny every Wed night @ 8? hehe. Then we have my daughter who is super perfect and never does anything wrong. I guess it evens out then. I have to constantly remind myself that he's a boy so he's gonna run around acting like one and he's strong willed so he will put up a fight when he doesn't get his way. And then the fact that he's 2.

I learned this in e.c.e  .. put your hand up in the air.. and dont take it down.. DONT.. then talk again about the leash.. Its very tiring for a little one to hold on especially if he is a "monkey!"
  Both of my sons were like that.   I used to look at the other parents at playgroup sitting and drinking coffee.  Not me..I was constantly behind my son the whole time.  They grow out of it!~
 Its a cute leash!~
Cheers

Kwik sew has some good all purpose patterns for boys, but they aren't available at Joann's.  The website is www.kwiksew.com.  One advantage in kwik sew over the big four pattern companies is that most of the big four have 4 inches of ease built into all of their patterns (including the kids patterns).  When your boy is 19 inches around, he doesn't need another four inches of ease.  Roll Eyes   

You can also check ebay for patterns, and looking at patterns is much easier if you use websites to locate the patterns. Most of the pattern companies have their pattern catalogs online.  Having dealt with children in the fabric store, I far prefer to scope out the patterns at home. 

There are a few places you can get kwik sew patterns online, including patternreview.com, wazoodle.com, and I know there used to be a co-op for kwik sew patterns on yahoo groups. (I'm not affiliated with any of the sites mentioned, by the way, and I'm sure kwik sew patterns are available elsewhere as well.  If you still have a Hancock fabrics by you, they carry them.  They don't go on sale, but they're good all purpose patterns).

I was looking through the recent with pics tab, and seen the leash monkey thing. I LOVE those things. The first time i seen them was last summer when i went to Tennessee. we went to the aquarium and there were tons of little ones wearing them, they are really cute and the kids seemed to love them and they could still 'run around' and be independent without holding someone's hand but the parent knows where they are and what not. I was a nanny for four years and one of the little girls was the child that was so good when you looked at her then was gone the second you looked away, i wish i would have seen them before so i could have made her one lol. All I'm really saying is..I love them things and when I get around to having kids between how I am now and the way my boyfriend was, My kids will have them things lol.
