Meet the Week 3 Designers: Carin of Art Bella Creates and Tami of SewSophieLynn

 We're really sad to announce that Gemia of Phat Quarters/Pier Avenue Patterns is unable to participate in Week 3 of Mini Season 2.  Gemia and her family have suffered a truly heartbreaking loss and can use your support, thoughts and prayers.

However, we're awed by Tami of SewSophieLynn who agreed to step in at the last minute and participate.  

After each of these talented designers introduce themselves, we have a SURPRISE for you...stay tuned!  These ladies have been challenged with this theme: 

Week 3: Comfort Encapsulated - No one knows what 2021 will bring, so prepare to be comfortable no matter what happens!  With the Project Lounge Library patterns as your paints, and fabric as your canvas, art will soon appear!

Let's get to know Tami and Carin better:


Hi all!  I'm Tami from SewSophieLynn and I'm humbled to be stepping in for Gemia this week.  I was lucky enough to compete alongside Gemia in Season 15 and my heart goes out to her and her family.  I love our Project Run and Play family and the community that surrounds us.  I am a mom of 5, ages 18-8, and just sent my oldest son off to North Carolina to serve a mission for our church.  I have loved the slower pace this past year and all of the extra family time we've had.  I still shuttle all the kiddos between soccer practices and dance lessons but we also manage to throw in lots of movie and game nights too (The Game of Things always gets us laughing)!  I started sewing in high school but didn't really get into it until my oldest daughter was born.  I've learned lots through pattern testing and working my way through my massive pdf pattern collection.  You can follow me at SewSophieLynn on Instagram.

My name is Carin and I am wife, mom to two and live in Illinois. I currently homeschool both my children and we are loving it. Both my hubby and myself were born in South Africa , lived in Switzerland for 2 years after we got married and have been living all across the USA for the past 16 years.

My love of Sewing? The phrase “I got it from my Mama” rings very true here. I grew up in my Mom’s sewing room. She is a self-taught amazing seamstress that went from sewing for herself, us and many other people into teaching sewing classes out of her garage. I have a B.Sc in Home Economics and even though the art of sewing, designing etc. was a huge part of it, my love and skill comes from my wonderful Mom.

I grew up in my mom's sewing room. I didn't sew for a while after college but after my now 10 year old was born, I started and haven't stopped since.

My style includes lots and lots of color, I love technique and always try to improve on my own. I love old-fashioned sewing with a modern twist. I view every item I sew as a piece of Art – from the moment I put it together in my head, to picking out fabrics, sewing and pressing the very last hem.

I love flipping a well designed pattern and putting my own twist on it. Sharing my craft with people is always a blessing.
