Welcome!

I’m Becky Ruud and I’ve always enjoyed sewing and crafting, of any kind...painting, drawing, crocheting, jewelry making, sewing... Owly Baby began in 2009 after I became a new mom. As a temporarily retired Spanish teacher, I’ve found plenty of (nap) time to sew practical and beautiful items for my 2 darling little girls.

I've been sewing since I was young and learned the basic skills from my Mom (thanks Ma!). I've since indulged in my sewing passion regularly to create fun and beautiful things for my friends and family. I usually only make one or two of each item because I love to come up with new designs and ideas. I find it more interesting to figure out the process and design of making - than actually reproducing the project multiple times.

In naming my Etsy shop (and therefore blog), I used a family word. I'm sure your family has these words too...a word you've made up and unknowingly created a meaning! While talking to my husband, Mr. Owly, I learned that OWLY isn't a real word (GASP!). I typed it into dictionary.com ... and ... nothing! Growing up, my mother and grandmother used it to describe someone who was grouchy or grumpy. This imaginary adjective still holds meaning for my family, and hopefully (now) your family too!

Welcome to Owly Baby. Trying to name my shop, I used a family word. I'm sure your family has these words too...a word you've unknowingly made up and created a meaning for. While talking to my husband, Mr. Owly, I learned that OWLY isn't a real word! (GASP!) I typed it into dictionary.com ... and ... nothing! Growing up, my mother and grandmother used it to describe someone who was grouchy or grumpy. This imaginary adjective still holds meaning for my family, and hopefully (now) your family too!

All items are designed and handcrafted with love by me. I sew in a smoke-free, pet-free, family friendly and cozy home.

I do sew custom orders, so please don't hesitate to convo me with your ideas. Please allow 2-3 weeks for custom order conversation, creation and shipping.
