#DIY Wrap Cardi + Flower Belt

Hi Darlings!

I hope you guys enjoyed the long weekend ;-) I had time to recuperate and and now I am back to feeling great. Thanks for all the well wishes, you guys are always so sweet! I didn't have much time to sew for myself this weekend but I did manage to squeeze out this wrap which some of you know it is one of my favorites to sew. I had this great wool blend I picked up at Michael Levine's over the weekend and I wanted to use as much of it as possible so I pulled out my trusty M6168 and made a wrap that I can use through the spring because it is actually pretty light weight and simply yummy!

I have made this before so I wont review it again but you can find that previous post HERE
The fabric I used is available HERE and don't forget to use your coupon code darling! (MIMIFEB10)
