Creating the LaCartera Family

Have you every wanted to create a thoughtful handmade gift? Or, have you really wanted to give a gift that wouldn’t end up in a drawer or closet? You shouldn’t have to feel guilty because you don’t have time to be creative or find an exclusive design or handmade gift. Sometimes there’s never enough time in the day to accomplish everything we want to do, especially if you work or have a family.

I’ve taken my passion to create textiles, ladies accessories and those gift items for my grandchildren and teamed with AP Quilting to help you give those same quality handmade gifts to your loved ones that are ready to ship! You will find unique ladies chiffon scarves and handbags made with my exclusive fabric designs. For those who prefer the DIY method there are a couple of downloadable handbag PDF patterns for all sewing levels with easy to follow tutorials and illustration. The ultra soft cotton girl dresses with those exclusive designs that grow with your child are available, because we understand that kids grow so quickly. The dresses can be worn as tops when your child grows a little wider and taller.

Teaming with AP Quilting adds additional gift giving options with lovely handmade strip or rag quilts for baby blankets, snuggly playtime toddler quilts and handcrafted baby mobiles that will always make the perfect handmade baby shower gift(s). Hair bows and other girls accessories will become available along with items for boys.

  1. To avoid pricey gifts and to reduce the stress of it all between friends and relatives I have given, received and appreciated baked goods as gifts too. I may be the only person on earth who thinks a fruitcake is just wonderful.
