30.000 followers on Instagram: giveaway time!

Recently I hit an amazing milestone of 30.000 followers on Instagram! 😍👏 Instagram is where my crochet journey started and where I met most of my crochet friends. Every Instagram milestone is special to me and I’m always so excited when a new milestone is about to happen.. I’m literally counting the days!

I still can’t believe how I ended up where I am today with so many new friends and living this exciting crochet life. I thought it would be nice to reflect back and see how I got here over the past three years.

Quick walk down memory lane

December 2014 I created my very first crochet item: a christmas tree. After Christmas I searched for more projects and ended up making a minion which took me 2 full weeks. My addiction to crochet was born.

March 2015 I started sharing my crochet projects on Instagram, initially for friends and family. However, I noticed most of them didn’t really care about crochet and they stopped following me. I felt quite discouraged and didn’t want to waste their time and ‘spam’ their feed. Soon I found others on Instagram doing the same as what I loved: crochet. I started following more and more crafters like me. And.. I started to gain followers who actually liked my work!

December 2015 I wanted to create a blog where I could share my crochet projects. January 1st 2016 I registered the name wilmade.com and started sharing blog posts every once in a while.

September 2016 I hit 10k followers on Instagram: “oh my, this is getting real”!

December 2016 the bun hat craze started to happen and I jumped on the bandwagon. I made my own versions and shared the patterns for free on my blog. Since that day my blog really took off and I felt the excitement to design more, more, more!

The bun hats I designed

In 2017 I still went to university full time and worked part time next to it, so I didn’t have that much time for crochet and designing. Every few months I made something and shared the pattern for free on my blog.

April 2017 I hit 20k followers on Instagram: woohoo!

July 2017 I published the Bella Vita Shawl which happened to go viral-ish, giving my blog another big boost. I was going to graduate for my Master’s degree 2 weeks later. More time to crochet, I’m coming for ya!

September 2017 I learned more about this interesting blogger’s world and how to make a living out of it. I started working together with companies and was able to share patterns more often because I had a bit more time after graduating.

October 2017 things were going very well with my blog, but I couldn’t publish as much content and patterns as I wanted to because I worked 4 days a week at communication & PR departments.

January 2018 I quit my jobs and registered my company Wilmade to focus full time on my blog & crochet activities.

Some of my recent patterns

April 2018 I came back from the USA where I stayed the first three months of 2018. I met some amazing fellow crochet bloggers and learnt some new tips and tricks about crochet blogging. I also shared my very first ‘selfie’ on Instagram and openly talked about my tumor on Instagram and my blog.

May 2018 I started a special series of free crochet patterns dedicated to people with the same condition as me.

June 2018 I reached 30.000 followers on Instagram! Whaat! 🎉

Thank you!

I want to thank you all for your support, comments, likes and messages. It helped me become who I am today and your support made me feel confident enough to share ‘selfies’ 😊

To celebrate this milestone, I reached out to Katia yarns and together we created three enormous yarn packages to give away. And as I loooove yarn cakes, you’ll find a lot of this type of yarn in the prize packages 😉

    I really enjoyed reading this blog post as I’ve only just found you, and I am so happy I did all thanks to a follow post and someone tagging you! It has been great to hear about your journey and what has been happening these past few years. I can’t wait to have some more time to check out your blog and Instagram more throughly!

    Congrats on reaching such an amazing milestone 🙂 I feel that I can relate to you with what you have said about how much it means to you, I too feel the same as I reach milestones although I’m no where near your amazing number!

    As for this lovely giveaway which I’m super excited about, it really would be amazing to win as I love Katia yarns and I think most in this prize bundle is vegan friendly so that’s ideal for me. It really would make my day/month/year to win so fingers crossed and a big thank you for this chance too. I think if I was lucky enough to win these yarns I’d Make a mix of crochet patterns. I’d love to use some to make some shawls and I’ve just fallen in love with some you’ve designed so that would definately be on my to do list. I’d also love to make some amigurumi with some as I think some of the yarn would be perfect for it and depending on the amount of yarn I even like the idea of making some garments like cardigans and sweaters etc. I really think I’d be inspired by the yarn and each would be perfect for certain patterns.

    Thank you so much for this chance to win these lovely yarns and I am really looking forward to getting to know you more and following your beautiful work.

    I love everything you make and look forward to seeing your next projects all the time. I think if I won this beautiful yarn I would like to make another of your fantastic shawls! I have made a couple of them so far and made your hats, and not look forward to the skirt and dress. I love the gradient yarns!

    Gefeliciteerd met deze gave mijlpaal!
    En om antwoord te geven op je vraag.. Om heel eerlijk te zijn, géén idee! Ik haak voornamelijk knuffels, dus ander garen dan katoen heb ik eigenlijk niet in huis. Lijkt me heerlijk om eens uitgedaagd/geïnspireerd te worden door nieuw garen!
    Liefs, van Desiree

    Hoi Wilma, van harte proficiat met zo ontzettend veel volgers. Met het garen zou ik een mooie omslagdoek willen haken of een bloemendeken, of… ach zat ideen
    Nu eerst naar eens keihard duimen…
    Liefs Margreet.

    I would love to make some scarves and shawls for the coming winter! I haven’t used much Katia yarn but it looks so gorgeous!

    I’d have to make a comfy jumper for my dear friend who’s going though a bad time.

    Hey Wilma,
    Zoals ik op instagram al schreef. GEFELICITEERD echt super en helemaal verdient. Ik volg je al een hele tijd en reageer graag op je berichten. Wat ik ontzettend mooi vind is dat je me al een paar keer persoonlijk daarvoor hebt bedankt. Ik doe het echt super graag en vind je patronen echt top. Ik hoop dat je nog veel volgers erbij krijgt en dat we elkaar misschien ooit nog eens gaan ontmoeten. Ik zou graag iets moois voor mijn moeder maken, een vriendin die het echt verdient. En een cliënt van “zeurt” om een nieuwe sjaal voor de winter. Ik ben heel benieuwd en ga duimen dat ik win. Ik heb nog niet vaak met katia garens gewerkt. Ben heel benieuwd.
    Fijn weekend

    Lieve groetjes,
