What a fantastic seller. Super fast delivery, excellent customer service and communications, not to mention beautiful packaging and a gorgeous little manatee. Love your craftsmanship. Totally made my day! Would highly recommend to anyone interested. And thank you for the kind card and a little surprise inside too!

I've been dreaming of making a banana slug for longer than most grown women will ever admit to. My sketchbook holds the proof. And finally, it is done.

A customer requested a purple hearted unicorn a few months ago and I liked it so much that I made another! Only this one has a secret pocket for small notes and treasures? Can you spot it?! purple_heart

Welcome to MadeByShellmo!

I received a sewing machine during a white elephant gift exchange about 8.5 years ago. It was this old, old Singer that had a machine manual that read like Greek to me. I had no idea what a bobbin was...let alone where the bobbin needed to go! Up until then, I hardly knew how to sew on a button! With good ol' trial and error and some gumption, I've since sewn hundreds of projects from dresses to curtains, from duvets to unicorns. I love working hard on projects and being proud of what I've made.

Six years ago, I was honored with the role of aunt-hood. I became a wee bit obsessed with making things for my nephew and that has taken me to opening MadeByShellmo. Now with five nieces and nephews, I am always trying out new ideas on them. I absolutely love dreaming up new creations and bringing them to life.

A customer at my local farmers market told me that my booth looked so whimsical--and it made my day! I love adding a little bit of whimsy to my customers' lives. Whether you are five or seventy five, I hope you find something that makes you smile in MadeByShellmo.
