Where did the material of gold come from for the ark and other temple items God requested to be made since Aaron had previously asked the people for their gold to make the calf?

Does this mean that not all the people participated in the worshipping and making of the calf?

Exodus 38:21 - 31

ESV - 21 These are the records of the tabernacle, the tabernacle of the testimony, as they were recorded at the commandment of Moses, the responsibility of the Levites under the direction of Ithamar the son of Aaron the priest. 22 Bezalel the son of Uri, son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, made all that the Lord commanded Moses.

Good question in my humble opinion and experience when God call's you to do, He will provide when you step out in faith to His task. 

In scripture we're told that the Egyptians were eager to pay and be done with the Israelites fearing death Exodus 12:35-36

God made Egypt pay Israel for the 430 years of bondage before leaving. Exodus 12:40

Their number was 600,000 men plus women and children Exodus 12:37 
plus unnumbered non Israelites rabble Exodus 12:38

Moses commands the Levites to kill the 3000 transgressors Exodus 32:28

When they leave Sinai they still have treasure Exodus 33:4 and Exodus 33:6

In the Lord's freedom and provision...warrior on.
