Shelly Johnsen's Profile
When an insidious disease in my spine was made it impossible to go back to my high-tech career, I had to find a way to channel my energy and creativity. In 2009 my cousin Leslie inspired me to teach myself to crochet. I went from scarves and washcloths to bags, then sweaters and finally to intricate doilies from vintage patterns. At first I shared my craft with my friends. They encouraged me to bring it to you through Etsy. I think they were just tired of getting all those scarves!

I also took up sewing again after 25 years. The quilted brocade tote bag I made elicited so many compliments and sighs that I decided to share those, too.
My Deluxe City Totes are all approximately 17" x 13"…
