As you are enjoying your Memorial Day and thinking back about those who served, take a look ahead at the adorable outfits we can look forward to in the next Ottobre issue - children's fall issue #4/2014.
I am so excited about this next issue of Ottobre Design - not only because of the cute designs, but for the first time it will be published in SPANISH !! I've ordered some Spanish editions, so let me know if you are interested.
Here are some new pictures and information about the next issue coming out the first week of July.
Practical outerwear clothes and comfortable under layers for outdoor activities and playgrounds: pants, coveralls, beanies, fleece jackets and hoodies. An aviator hat and jacket for a little pilot. The season's most wanted outdoor clothes which also look great!
Cute and comfy organic-cotton baby clothes: a bodysuit, a jersey hoodie, denim-look jersey pants, leggings and a pinafore dress. A lightweight, super-soft organic-cotton coverall for cooler days and evenings.
Casual yet neat autumn clothing for preschoolers and schoolchildren. Pants, long-sleeve tees, tunics, skirts and dresses for girls. Cord pants, sweatpants, hoodies, tees and a biker jacket for boys.
The cover picture will be revealed in our June 1st newsletter.
While we are waiting around for the next issue to come out, take a look at the dozens of free designs Ottobre offers on their site.
there are neckties, purses, diapers, toys, hats, shirts, designs, belts, and more.....
"Pairing" seems to be very trendy right now. I hear a lot about the pairing of wine and chocolate. There are lots of other pairings, as well. In our May newsletter, we "paired" our curved rulers and Swedish tracing paper since they work together to make patterns in Ottobre magazine.
This worked out so well, I've added a new category on our website called "Pairings". The items are paired (linked) with another item and when purchased together there is about a 15% savings.

pairing of our standard curved ruler and our Swedish tracing paper
We are super excited to announce that we are the distributors for these amazing curved rulers. They are ideally suited for pattern drafting and adding seam allowances. The ones shown are 5/8" width, but 3/8" inch ones are due in the next few days. Also available are these rulers in metric measurements.
