Cal 2020, Dessert (toetje)

Updated: Jul 2, 2023

Designing the cal and writing the patterns, helping everybody and preparing the files for the next part and writing a blog every week was a lot of work.

It didn’t really help that I gave weaving lessons the week before the cal started and again when the second part of the cal was released. During that time I also had extra choir practice. It was a crazy few weeks, but it was also a great time.

At the end of the 2017-2018 cal, I released a pattern for a small bag. The design looked like the big cal. This little bag was designed by a member (Toto Lewis).

That was a great way to use up left overs. So I thought let's do that again.

I have been working on two patterns for wallets. The work title is cal ‘toetje’. You pronounce this as t u . t j ə. ‘Toetje’ is the Dutch word for dessert. So, with those last designs I present you the cal’ s dessert.

Like I said, I have made two patterns for wallets. One where you use the oval bottom, but just one repeat of the middle part and one where you use the first week of the round bottom. Both wallets close with a zipper.

The oval wallet is big enough for hooks and other craft necessities or a glasses case.

The round wallet is big enough for money, monthly lady stuff or ear buds.

Now the 2020 cal has really come to an end. I hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did.
