KCW to the rescue!

Next week it's Kids Clothes Week, and I've decided that this will be the week when I'm going to inaugurate my new sewing space. I've dusted off my sewing machines, unpacked the box with sewing equipment, and gone through my stash in search of fabric to upcycle. Ready to go!

Or, that's how it should feel. To be honest, I don't feel very inspired right now. Is it because I have taken such a long sewing break? Or because my kids don't really need any new clothes? The latter was never an obstacle for me, so why is it now...? Is it because I've been crazy busy with work and other commitments? I don't know.
Anyway, I realized that the purpose of KCW is exactly to help me over this hurdle, by committing myself to sew a little bit every day. So that's what I'm going to do, and hope for the sewing mojo to return.
Cutting out the Charlie pattern from Zonen09
I've decided to start off with some simple things, like patching pants and upcycling a t shirt for my son. Since he has recently declared that his favorite color is pink, I'm sure that he will love this polo with pink, blue, grey and tan stripes. And I'm sure that I will love the fact that it requires only four seams and one hem. It won't get any easier than this...
