Meet the Author

Cassie Barden has been involved in making art her whole life, from cartooning, filmmaking, and painting to making odd stuffed animals and creating costumes for Burning Man and Halloween. An interest in both sewing and fashion inspired her to start creating her own one-of-a-kind bags and accessories that appeal to both her utilitarian and style-conscious natures. When she's not sewing, Cassie enjoys two Seattle institutions: live music and drinking coffee. Cassie is inspired by contemporary art and design, anything retro or old-fashioned, and Seattle's urban culture.

Adrienne Smitke grew up surrounded by crafts in a house full of handmade quilts and clothes. Adrienne's mother taught her and her younger sister to sew at an early age, even once assigning them sewing "homework" over summer vacation. She made a rad pair of black-and-neon-green shorts. (It was the '80s, after all.) Drawing on her creative childhood, Adrienne studied illustration and graphic design in college, during which she finally began experimenting with sewing again on her own. You can see more of her patterns in Everyday Handmade (written with Cassie Barden), A Baker's Dozen, Jelly Babies, and Sew the Perfect Gift.
