    I just love the variety of the kids patterns! The children I sew for love to wear the clothes I make.

    (I left comment before but it wasn’t added. I just try again and hope to be in time)

    I love how current it is! And how it hits all my kids in 1 book

    I love that you get so many patterns in a range of sizes, all in the one place. There is always something to inspire me.

  4. Christine November 19, 2014

    I love the Ottobre patterns because they always look great, and the photos are always wonderful for inspiration! The instructions are (usually) clear and easy to follow, so even if you don’t have experience making something you can still work your way through and end up with a great item! I have to admit that I haven’t shopped around, I started making clothes for the kids from Ottobre patterns and haven’t strayed….there are always new patterns for me to try from the almost 4 years worth of magazines I have collected!

    I love Ottobre! The basic patterns are just great and it’s the simplicity of each model that displays all the beautifull fabrics they use very well. Did I say I LOVE fabrics too? ;) The magazine learned me how to sew knits, showed me how patterns work and inspires me to think beyond what’s ’ normal’ fashion. It gives me lots of inspiration! My kids are the happy beneficiaries!

  6. Karin November 19, 2014

    I just love the patterns of Ottobre. Almost every issue has few patters that I just have to make. I make for the kids of a friend and they love it.

  7. Sunrae Baillie November 18, 2014

    Otto is always “on trend” without being try hard. They are also look so versatile. I’d love to give them a go.

  8. kristy November 18, 2014

    With a brand new baby girl and a 5 year old girl ottobre mag patterns are great, fun, fast and perfect for me.

  9. Renae November 18, 2014

    The thing I love most about Ottobre is the range of sizes in each issue. I’d love to win the new issue to do some sewing for baby #4 who’s due in January :)

  10. Frances November 18, 2014

    Would love to check out Ottobre to get lots of new ideas for patterns, and colour combinations for your gorgeous fabrics…hope there are easy patterns for beginners :)

    I have never had one of these buy drool and the thought of owning one – they look AMAZING!!

  12. Megan Al Lawati November 18, 2014

    I love Otto- it gives loads of inspiration to new and old sewers . Its so bright and fun what could u not like :)

  13. Gladys November 17, 2014

    Ottombe – Always ‘the fashion’ so won’t go out of style. What not to love?!

  14. Delene Potgieter November 17, 2014

    Ottobre is my favourite magazine. The clothes are comfy and modern and great to sew.

  15. Yvy November 17, 2014

    I started sewing with Otto (yup, jumped in the deep end!) and I think it’s great because they have sizes from babies right up to teens and sometimes even adults in the one magazine and it is absolutely value for money! I honestly do know know of another magazine that offers this many patterns for this prize and it’s so easy to modify according to your child. Plus I’m bias – I love paper patterns!!! ;)

  16. Tas November 17, 2014

    I love the versatility of sizes and styles. And I have a soft spot for Finland as I lived there for a year of my mis-spent youth so love to support their crafting economy.

  17. Michelle Arrowsmith November 17, 2014

    Ooh I love Otto, all of the clothes are so fun and funky, I’m yet to see anything that I don’t really like!! :)

  18. November 17, 2014

    Because you get a great range of contemporary patterns in each issue including lots of cool boy options

  19. Narelle Galloway November 17, 2014

    they have awesome designs, and love the inspiration!

  20. Sandra Kay November 17, 2014

    So much inspiration!

  21. Julie November 17, 2014

    I love Otto because the patterns are easy to make, look fab and the kids are always comfy. People are always asking me ‘where did you buy that, I’d love one for my child’.

  22. Lee Cornelius November 17, 2014

    I love Otto because i love a challenge -and every time i want to trace a pattern from the fab otto mags I’m challenged BIG time! Practice makes perfect though right – hence why i need a new Otto mag :)

  23. greer November 17, 2014

    I’ve never had the pleasure of holding an Otto mag in my hands, but I have observed the frenzy and excitement that it seems to induce, and I am exceptionally keen to experience this!!

  24. Christina Feltrin November 17, 2014

    I would love an Otto to rekindle my sewjo!!

  25. Karen Bartholomew November 17, 2014

    Have just become a grandmother for the first time and I am learning to make baby clothes. I would love to learn to make clothes using these patterns as my granddaughter grows so will the sewing confidence with these patterns!
