I love days off, they afford me time with my sewing machine. I inevitably get bored of my wardrobe, so I like to drag out the old machine and get to work altering and repairing. It's a hell of a lot cheaper than going out and buying new stuff. So far I've made a top out of a dress, a pair of shorts out of jeans that had badly ripped, and I cut the arms out of a denim jacket. Hurray for scissors and thread!
I have a fancy for bricks like this.. they're almost always painted white though. Primary colours are the way to go I think.
