76 free tutorials & patterns for little boys shorts and pants
Updated 8 November, 2012

This masterlist contains free patterns you can print and free tutorials that show you how to make things! The patterns are organised first, by size, and then at the bottom of the post are all the tutorials. If you use any of these tutorials or patterns, make sure you follow the 'rules' that the blogger who wrote them may have set out {IE if you can sell items you have made, pinning photos of their kids etc}.
