Taking a break from these shirts

I started these yesterday afternoon:

Two shirts for my pal, who loves wearing boy shirts. My Husbie was showing off his leafy brown shirt the other day, and my friend begged him to try it on, and it fitted! This pattern is truly the best boys shirt, I've got about 3 or 4 vintage ones, but this one is great.

The material in both shirts are bedsheets and a doona cover (I think the brown leaves was the doona cover) but the pinky bird one is SO soft it's unbelievable! I actually had to use the sides rather than the middle (it's a massive double bed one) because I'm worried the middle of the sheet is so soft it'll get threadbare once I've finished the shirt, or it could rip. Oh, the ups and downs of using recycled materials!

Ok, enough time off, I'll head back into the sewing room now!
