Museum purchase, Gift of the Christensen Fund
An incomplete baby carrier without ties or lining, possibly never finished. It consists of two seamed panels embroidered (straight and chain stitch) with repeating floral motifs arranged to form a large T. The T is bounded by by three borders of different design and width. Pattern colors are light orange, pale orange, tan, and red-violet. The plain-weave ground appears to be dyed black but has the sheen of indigo.
