Our Wild Story
I owned a CrossFit gym in Calgary at the time and was in need of a comfortable place for my new baby to rest comfortably with me while I was coaching.
I had seen a ‘nest’ that a fellow cross fitter was using in Europe and I figured that would be a good option to try. Since there was nothing even remotely close to it online or available for purchase in Canada, I free hand designed my own. I have been sewing since I was a little girl so I knew I’d be able to make something feasible.
My first attempt turned out ‘ok’ but it wasn’t quite what I envisioned. So I went back to the drawing board. I didn’t want a Nest that needed a cover or a separate mattress .. I wanted to be able to just throw the whole thing in the wash. I decided to try quilting the resting space stuffing in place so that it wouldn’t become all clumped and lumpy over time. The first attempt at this turned out pretty awesome .. I sewed it with a diamond pattern really similar to typical patchwork quilt. I loved it. I was so proud of how it turned out so I posted pictures of it on my personal Instagram and Facebook accounts. To my surprise friends and followers started placing orders that same day!
That little man in the window is the whole reason LoveBird started over 5 years ago now .. thumbs up WolfCub!
I was so busy by the summer of 2016 with orders that I started teaching Raph how to sew. I’m sorry but there aren’t many things more attractive than a man that sews .. especially when he sews for children. He’s surprisingly an excellent sewer and he actually loves it! Who knew?? We now sew and run LoveBird together full time while raising a crazy crew of 4 kids!!
