"We know what we are, but we know not what we may be"
It's a fact that Shakespeare had upcycling in mind when he wrote this line in Hamlet.* And while it is true of your stack of re-fashionable goods, it is also true of the child you will sew for. Imagine what your child may grow to become, and refashion her an outfit to match that future.
*It's not a fact, that was entirely falsified.
