Due to the current exceptional circumstances, the majority of the editorial team of the OTTOBRE magazine are now working from their homes. We have good experience in telecommuting because during the whole period of our operation, a large number of our staff have been based in various European countries. As a customer, you can expect that matters will continue to be dealt with as usual.
Our webshop also continues to operate normally. Like before, all orders for magazine issues will be dispatched from Turku, Finland, on the first business day following the order. Orders for 1–3 issues will continue to be sent by letter mail. Delays in deliveries that are not due to us may occur with the local postal services, depending on the country of destination. Therefore we hope that you remain patient and kindly ask you to follow information about the postal services in your country.
All orders for four or more magazine issues destined for continental Europe will for the time being be sent by parcel post. A tracking code will be sent to the email address that you provided in your order, so that you can track the progress of your parcel online.
As a small independent publisher, we want to thank you for helping us to ensure the future operation of our company. We hope that you all will stay healthy and safe during these exceptional times.

This delicious raspberry-pink glitter sweatshirt knit is the perfect fabric for the tunic-length hoodie with a tulip shape and pockets in the side seams. The hood can be adjusted with a drawstring that is threaded into the hood casing through grommets. The cheerful leggings are sewn from printed cotton single jersey, but you can naturally make them in solid color, and even sew several pairs to match various tops!
Adding an image of a scary creature to clothing can tame a child's fear and turn the creature into the child's spirit animal. Since the appliqué is made on stretchy fabric, it's advisable to use fusible web that is intended for stretchy fabrics for bonding the appliqué shapes to the garment. You can also let the child draw their own spirit animal and make the appliqué together, thus helping sewing to become a family hobby!
