All About Oombawka Design
Oombawka Design was created as a way for me to share my crochet projects with my friends and family. Initially, I was crocheting and selling little stuffed toys.
The name “Oombawka”, came from a word my daughter used for a little toy I was crocheting at the time – the Mini Meows (or Little Oombawkas).
My daughter (who was almost 3 years old then) called them her ‘Oombawkas‘ – so when I was trying to decide what to call my blog I chose Oombawka because I was pretty sure no one else in the world had ever used the word before and because there was a personal meaning to me. You can read my full story here: About Me 2017
Oombawka Design began in 2013. My hobby has become my full-time job and I love every single moment of it. Crochet is my ‘happy place’ and being able to share my designs with you and help you to learn how to crochet makes me happy.
I hope to be able to continue blogging and sharing my designs with you for years to come.
