Crochet Edge Calendar

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

I ordered a calendar print from Ello Lovey a few days ago and was very excited to discover it in my mailbox this afternoon. Getting mail is so much fun! All I ever get in the mail is sale ads and electric bills, so I always think it's exciting to get something good. :)

Isn't it adorable? Even the packaging is cute! I love how everything is so personalized. As cute and wonderful as I think this print is, I wanted to add a little bit of a personal touch to it. Sooo....

I decided I would give it a crochet edge! I had never crocheted onto paper before, so I was a bit nervous, but I found a very helpful tutorial here. Punching that first hole into the paper was VERY nerve-racking. I was so afraid that I was going to ruin the print. I wanted to make sure the main focus remained on the calendar, so I used some thin crochet thread and a size 1 hook. I opted for a scalloped edge because I think scallops have a simple, classic feel.

In the end, the calendar turned out exactly how I wanted. It looks so cute hanging on my fridge! Very Rachel don't you think?

Hope you're having a wonderful week!
