My Story

 I love to sew!  Ever since I was little girl, I have been obsessed with cutting fabric and sewing it back together!


Creating something out of nothing more than a few scraps of fabric, crude drawings, and a sewing machine is one of my greatest pleasures.


Sewing was a family affair. My grandmother and aunts were all Home Economics teachers. At age 8 I got my first sewing machine and immediately got busy designing and sewing new outfits for all my dolls.


As I got older, I began to make my own clothes and eventually my daughter’s - until she started junior high school and didn't want to wear dresses to school :)


I opened a shop on ETSY in 2010, selling handmade personalized baby gift items. Later that same year I was introduced to quilting and my love affair with handmade home décor began!


My online shop Gifts by Karla was born to share my passion for handmade home décor and machine embroidered baby gifts with other people. Each item is sewn, embroidered, and machine quilted by me.


I feel very blessed to have this opportunity, again, thanks for supporting my small business, you are greatly appreciated. ♥♥
