Deploy that Fabric Book Tour
Most of you know that I love to sew with uniforms. I have a little bag business. I have been around the military all my life. My father retired after over 30 years of military service, I was an Army Nurse and I am married to an Army Officer. I bet that at some point a couple of my children will be in the military too. Needless to say I have always had a uniform in my closet. Uniforms are great. Strong fabric, neutral colors and almost endless pockets to incorporate into bags and potholders and quilts and aprons...heck you can make an easy mini skirt out of the pants.
What say we chat a bit about the book?
Jennifer Eskridge wrote a wonderful book! It is a perfect guide to use uniforms in your everyday sewing and crafting. I have been doing it for years! You can too. Jennifer Eskridge is an Air Force wife and creator of great things. Deploy that Fabric has 23 sewing projects inside for you to try. Most are very simple and make using uniforms almost second nature.
Fat Quarterly Blog will be reviewing the book tomorrow the 6th.
