Announcement   ToryMakes is the brand of an artisan hat maker based in the Pacific Northwest. I bring creativity, love and years of experience to every piece I make!

I make something for everyone: newborn photo props, infant coming home hats, beautiful handmade baby hats, practical every day toddler hats and whimsical wearable art for kids and adults alike. TM slippers, coasters and cozies add a pop of color and joy into every day life and make excellent gifts!

Every piece is made, by my own two hands, with a specific person in mind. Nothing here is mass produced; there are no machines, no factory, no line production... each piece is began and finished, with you in mind, by one person. And I love that! That's so important to me.

Because of this, each and every item can potentially be customized and I can ensure it's just what you want.

All orders will be made and in the mail within 10 business days. If you need your order sooner, there are two rush listings available to purchase (a 2-day and 5-day) and upgraded shipping is available during checkout.

You can keep up with new designs, see the life of a modern milliner, sneak peeks and customer photos on Instagram. I love to see my work out in the world, tag your photos #ToryMakesinaction @ToryMakes www.instagram.com/ToryMakes

Thank you so much for choosing ToryMakes. I deeply appreciate each order that continues to let me follow my dream of creating wearable art!

About

A modern day milliner

Hello!

I'm Tory, the owner, designer and artist behind ToryMakes. I have the raddest husband, two mind boggling children - a teenager and a three-nager. They're amazing little humans and I love being their mom, but man, kids are WEIRD. I've never done anything as ultimately satisfying and yet terrifying as being a parent. We live, we laugh, and we praise the Lord in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

I like rainy days and dark roast coffee. I'm currently obsessed with hand lettering and bible journaling. And pens. All the pens. I still love buying school supplies at the end of every summer, and I haven't been in school for... awhile. Yeah, it's been awhile.

I've been creating for as long as I can remember and I've always loved art. From sculpture, photography, oil painting, charcoal drawing to cross stitch. Decoupage and collaging and art journaling are still things that happen regularly at my house! I found my THING when I started knitting. Initially I made bags... many, many purses, satchels, wallets. All the bags! Then I moved on to scarves, blankets and clothes. Hats were few and far between until I took up crocheting, that's when I fell in love with hats and ToryMakes was born in the fall of 2013.

I like mixing patterns, interesting textures and shapes and mismatching. I love bright and bold colors. I appreciate that when people are shopping for the young at heart practical isn't always their first priority. Accessories, they can be FUN! They can be whimsical.

I love that moment when an idea becomes a reality. Handmade is amazing in the fact that something (something tangible, something beautiful) is made from... nothing. From a pile of supplies. I use a hook and a ball of yarn as my medium and I make THINGS. Hats, slippers, cozies, tiny little tidbits. One of a kind pieces of useable art. The entire process still impresses and fascinates me.

Making hats & accessories for you, it's my thing. And I love what I do. Every single day I feel blessed that I get to do what I love.

So, thank you. Thank you very much!

    I'm just a girl from the PNW that loves Jesus, her family, books, dark coffee, art, bright colors... and makes a lot of hats. I'd love to make you one, too!
