how it began

Kirsten and I grew up sewing, knitting, and creating.  We received sewing machines for our high school graduations and thankfully, our mama taught us how to use them well.  For years, we talked about creating a business that allowed us to design, play and work together. However, life took us in very different directions, Kirsten to Europe, and me to Asia.  It was only when we moved back to Canada, and we became mamas to little men, that we were able to consider developing our own business.

The story behind birdy&bug is fabulously organic.  Kirsten and I love making and designing goods to make our lives a little more colourful, and so  we created some bags, mats and mobiles for our own use.  It was only after sharing them with our mama friends that folks started to ask if they could buy them.  Eh Voila, birdy&bug was born.

We really hope that you love our creations and would encourage you to check in with our weekly blog as we continue to create and design new goods for mamas, papas and little people!

about us

Kirsten is a mom of (now) four fabulous children, an avid knitter, designer, Certified Doula and Yoga instructor and crafter extraordinaire.  To learn more about her, please visit her website, 

I, Rebekka, am a psychotherapist come stay-at-home-mama.  I keep myself busy chasing my 5 year old and 2 year old little men, playing outside, cooking, crafting, designing and sewing birdy&bug goods.

where are we?

Kirsten resides in Calgary, Alberta, while I currently live in Ottawa, Ontario.  While there are certainly challenges in having a “cross Canada business”, we have been fortunate to expose our birdy&bug line to folks from Vancouver to PEI. Thanks to our site on, we’re now able to ship our goods internationally as well!
