A modern day milliner

Hello!

I'm Tory, the owner, designer and artist behind ToryMakes. I have the most incredible husband and two mind boggling children - a teenager and a preschooler, and I love being their mom. 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 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. 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.

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