About ToCraftAHome

Sales 3,810
On Etsy since 2014

To Craft A Home is simply crafting a home

To Craft A Home has been years of learning and mastering the art of crochet. It started out when, as a new mother, I decided that I wanted to have the ability to gift my oldest daughter handmade gifts made from my own hands. Growing up and seeing all of the crafty ladies in my life gave me the drive to pick up a hook and start. Over the years and through trial and error came designs of my own and eventually the push to start selling my work. My home consists of two daughters, a husband, and four cats, all of who contribute to To Craft A Home in some significant way. My daughters are my biggest form of inspiration and are constantly helping me out with creative ideas and modeling. Every item made from this shop has the seal of approval from both of them. A child's eye to detail and creation can be the most important part of any creative process! My husband is the backbone behind the business, shipping, packaging, and running late night craft runs! And even my four cats play out a huge role in this business with their constant modeling of cat sweaters and testing of catnip toys. My orange tabby Jameson is especially fond of modeling and you will see it through many of the photos in listings in my shop.

I set out to make my home feel more like a home from pieces of handmade work displayed all throughout it and I hope that your home begins to feel more complete just as mine does knowing that each piece is made with care and thought. I truly enjoy what I do here and hope you do as well.

  • Kate

    Owner, Designer, Creator

    I'm the one behind the hook in all of this. Often times you'll find me crochet hook in hand, good tunes playing, a cat or two watching on (fearing more sweaters made for them perhaps?), and a project in hand! I truly love my work :)

  • Juliet

    Model, Inspiration

    Juliet is my oldest daughter and one of my biggest inspirations behind many of the pieces you find in my shop! She is constantly by my side coming up with new ideas (especially for toys!) and helps model many of the items you see.

  • Iris

    Model, Inspiration

    Iris is my daughter and another great source for my inspiration and creative ideas. Every toy or fun hat you see here has personally been approved by Iris!

  • Jon

    Assistant, Photographer, Shipper

    Jon is my husband and the backbone of To Craft A Home. He's the muscle behind every craft fair or farmer's market outing, the shipper of goods, shopper for late night supply runs, and my biggest form of support.

  • Jameson

    Cat Model

    RIP Jameson August 2007-January 20, 2022. Jameson was the most photogenic of all the cat models. He loved wearing his sweaters and cowls the most!

  • Moon

    Cat Model

    Moon brings a lot of character to any photo she takes! She prefers her cat hats over any apparel, but she goes with the flow with anything put on her!

  • Shiva

    Cat Model

    Shiva is our beautiful tortie, the perfect model for any earth tones or Halloween apparel. She's petite and perfect for modeling our smallest sizes!

  • Tyrion

    Cat Model/Toy Tester

    Tyrion is our tuxedo cat model and though he isn't always as fond of modeling cat sweaters, he is quite a huge fan of testing our catnip toys!

  • Harold

    Cat Model

    Harold is our newest and youngest addition. He specializes in testing out all of the cat toys our shop has to offer, as well as modeling kitten apparel. We look forward to seeing how handsome of an adult cat model he becomes!
