This is the second time I bought from Craftylittlepear. The capes are of excellent quality and the kids love wearing them!

My grandson absolutely loves his cape and has worn it everyday since receiving it. My daughter loves that it attaches with clips so there’s no risk of him strangling himself as he whooshes around!

Could not recommend this product and seller enough. I bought this for my niece who has just turned three and recently spent some time in the hospital. The seller reached out and made sure I got it on time to give as a gift for being so brave. The quality is unbelievable.

Gorgeous cape with mask and cuffs. Fantastic quality and my daughter loves it.
The Crafty Pear journey
We met at a playgroup in 2009 with our toddlers when we were both pregnant with our second children. We immediately hit it off and both us and the children have remained friends ever since.
We came from very different work backgrounds. Lisa was a vet so she swapped the operating table for cutting table and suturing for a sewing machine. Jo worked in costume and wig departments on tour and on West End productions such as 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang' and 'Grease'!
Where did the idea for Crafty Pear come from?
Crafty Pear evolved from us initially getting together to make things for our school craft fair. As our youngest children started nursery and then school we found we had more time to devote to it and the business slowly grew.
It was when we were given the fantastic opportunity to have a stall on Greenwich Market with a group of other designer maker Mums that we felt it could be more than a hobby.
Did the balance of work and children factor into your decision to create your own business?
Yes, we have both always said that our first job is always to be a Mum. Making all our clothes, sourcing fabrics, keeping up an online presence and manning the shop, all within the school day is certainly a challenge!
What do you love most about working as a designer and creator or your own products?
We both get very excited about new fabrics and there's nothing more satisfying than seeing the transformation from the fabric on the roll to an item of clothing, especially when you spot a child wearing something you've made!
