Super Secret Project Revealed!
Here is the design I've been working on for a couple months now. The design embroidered on the onesie is a squash blossom necklace design that Navajo women wear on special occasions. My mother gave me a squash blossom of hers and now my little Marisol who is 7 months has her own too! I guess it's similar to a string of pearls... I drew the design myself and then created an embroidery design for a onesie. The gathered skirt is similar to the modern traditional skirts worn everyday by my grandmother Sue and many other "Masani's." I hope to sell the design on etsy soon, but I'd like to develop more "necklace" designs for bibs and onesies and t-shirts first. Hope you like it!
