I sold the first Potbelly Bear in 2004, marking the start of a creative career I never could have anticipated. I've met the warmest and kindest of people, and I've had the most wonderful time!
In the years since that first sale, Potbelly Bears has grown its offerings. I still make Potbelly Bears, of course – but also Old Timers, pincushions, and more. I've rebranded to be more inclusive of that. And since "Shelli Makes" all that I offer, Shelli Makes has become my new name.
I'm especially excited about the new shop feature. It's easy to use, and a self-contained purchasing portal – and also serves as a gallery of recent work. I don't anticipate any problems with it, but if you have questions or comments about the Shelli Makes shop, please eMail to let me know.
I hope you'll enjoy the new look, and thanks for checking in. I appreciate you.
