❤ About OMG! Heart
Ohayo! Welcome to OMG! Heart – my Knitting, Crochet, and Sewing blog. My name is Alice. “O.M.G. heart it!!” is what I usually say when I see things that I love.
Follow me on my Fiber Craft journey where I find and share all the great things online and IRL (in real life) for anyone who is a do-it-yourself-er when it comes to Knitting, Sewing, and Crochet. It’s for anyone without a huge budget or much time who’d like to try it at their own pace and per their own investment. From the curious student to the ambitious career lady, frazzled mom, or craft dabbler these are great hobbies for all.
I’m big on DIY, especially these days when we have the glorious Internet and Google! I taught myself to knit in high school through books borrowed from the local public library back when the Internet was only for the military and things like DARPA Net were not for us laymen.
A few years after college, I eventually got back into Knitting, discovered Crochet along the way, and am now pursuing Sewing. It was difficult to try many of these hobbies without some investment back then. Limited resources meant it was hard to actually even get into Knitting or even see what’s out there. It was also difficult to find projects and patterns that I wanted to do. I loved the art of Knitting, Crochet, and Sewing but I didn’t love the kinds of projects and patterns I saw. They just weren’t my style and I also wanted to learn while doing. And fast. So I began collecting my fave patterns, how-tos, and inspiration that reflected most what I wanted to make, wear, use, give away, and learn.
OMG! Heart contains a collection of (mostly) free patterns and the wonderful resources online I’ve found while on my fiber crafting journey. They are what have helped and inspired me most as a DIY crafter. I also share all the places I find in NYC to go for your crafty needs from where to fix your vintage sewing machine, take a class, or get some lovely yarn!
It’s for those who’d like to try out these crafts to see where they lead before they decide exactly how much time and effort they’d like to invest. Perhaps you’d like to try Crochet or any of these wonderfully addictive hobbies at least once, make some homemade gifts for friends and family, or are an advanced crafter just looking for ideas. Take a peek and try a project! Perhaps you will like them just as much as I do!
I’m always looking for great patterns and projects that my friends create too. If you have a project you’d like to share, please submit it! Be sure to include detailed pattern, any helpful notes, pictures of your completed creation, contact information, and links to your website.
All my original designs and patterns are free to copy and post as long as it’s posted with a credit to me and a link to OmgHeart.com. Hope you enjoy my blog!
