Cassette Desk Calendars

I made several of these for Christmas presents this year.  I loved how they turned out even though they are slightly different than I intended.

I’ve been ‘nesting’ quite a bit for Pigg#3.  At least sewing a bunch of things for him.  So I’ll call this the ‘Progressive Preggo Party’ as I share the things I’ve made.  Hope you don’t get...
