¡Bienvenidos! 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 darling little girl, Lucy. I've been sewing since I was young (thanks, Mom) and I love the challenge of taking something flat, like fabric, and making it fit your needs. I usually only make one or two of each item because I love to come up with new designs and ideas. I am very lucky to have supportive family and friends who have encouraged me to sell my handmade items. In naming my shop, 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 ... 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! Thank you for supporting handmade! All items are 100% designed and handmade with love by me, Becky.
