Mini Season 3: Round 3 Designers

We can hardly believe it is the final week of Mini Season 3 already! For our final round we have Elizabeth and Saskia...

Round 3 Designers

We are very excited to welcome Elizabeth back to Project Run and Play! In Season 14 she sewed for her younger siblings, but now she is married with children of her own to sew for! How exciting!!!

Hello! I’m Elizabeth of The College Seamstress. I was previously on PRP way back in 2017 for season 14 and I am so excited to be here for a mini season! I have now been sewing for nearly two decades! Since my last appearance on Project Run and Play I got married, have two kids under two and a half, and became a SAHM. I even sewed my own wedding dress which is probably my favorite project of all time! I have a 2 year old daughter and a 9 month old son and I love making clothes for them in the limited time I have to sew. My daughter loves wearing her mama made clothes and now thinks that mama makes all her clothes!

 When I’m not sewing, I enjoy baking sourdough bread and even started selling it in local Farmers Markets and from my kitchen to local customers. I also enjoy being outside with my kids, going for walks, and spending time with my family.

You can follow me on Instagram HERE where I share more of my sewing projects, bread baking, and life as a mom.

Saskia from The Wolf and the Tree joined Project Run and Play during Season 21.

My name is Saskia and I am the designer behind The Wolf and the Tree. I was born in Germany where I learned how to sew using paper patterns - with newspaper and needle point tracing wheel on the kitchen floor - under the guidance of my mother.

I drafted my first clothing patterns when I was in High School. After my children were born I made them everything from self drafted sleep sacks to snow boots and winter coats.

My dearest sewing machine is an early 1970s Elna, gifted to me from my children's honorary great-grandmother, and named in her memory - Peggy. I am a firm believer that everything beyond the old fashioned straight and zig zag stitches is beautiful but not a necessity. Don't be discouraged if your machine lacks features that the modern machines have - you an create lasting beauty with anything, as long as you put care and love into the making of your garments. 

The last years have put some things on hold and I am happy to get fully immersed again and get creative and see creativity in others! I am so excited to be part of this challenge and for the fun of imagining and making to start for this mini season!

We can't wait to see what these talented ladies create this week! Don't forget to join in on our sewalong to win prizes as well! Get the details HERE!
