About CreatedByChell

On Etsy since 2016

My Hobby Has Become My Joy!

My name is Michelle Shaffer and I am the person, designer and owner of Created By Chell. After being laid off of my job I became obsessed with brushing up my skills at crocheting, something I learned way back in Junior High. I love finding new styles and designs not to mention new colors and textures of yarn. For me crocheting is my Yoga, my time to myself, a way to decompress and create something beautiful. Handmade jewelry has also become a passion of mine and you will find some pieces available to purchase.

During the Fall of 2016 my Hubby, Bob, placed the idea of opening a shop in my head after several friends and family requested custom orders. By November of 2016 my first shop was opened on Etsy. The original Etsy shop is still open and works in tandem with my online shop. Proudly you can now find my creations to purchase on EBay, Poshmark, Mercari, Facebook and Instagram.

Wondering about the name? Well, Chell is my nickname so it seemed a good choice to go with my Creations. Do you have an idea, question or need a different color or size? I’d love to hear from you and see what I can do to make it Handmade Just For You!

Sincerely,
Michelle Shaffer - Owner

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

Most of my Creations are made with acrylic yarn. Acrylic yarn is easy to take care of and machine washable and dry-able. My preference is to wash on delicate and dry on low or medium. Hand washing is the best option to sustain the look and to prevent pilling or snagging.
