I've ordered 4 of these capes over the last couple of years. They're good quality and my kids are still playing with them two years on!

Brilliant. Really well made and came in good time (considering they’re being made to order). Pretty sure my wee girl is going to love it.

A perfect gift made extra special by the attention to detail and quality. Better than imagined and really nicely packaged: absolutely met and exceeded any expectations and the seller kept me updated throughout its progress. Highly recommended. Thank you.

I think this might be the best thing I’ve ever ordered from Etsy! Thanks

Always have lovely service from Crafty Pear. We bought bits and bobs for a couple of years and they are always great quality, great fabrics and well made. Will keep buying from here lots!

Beautifully made, love the clips not only for safety but the cape won't keep swinging round. Really happy!

The quality is great. The cape is really well made and lovely weight of material. I wish they came in more sizes as not sure the size will be big enough for a five - six year old. I will have to see at Christmas time.

Lovely doggie joggers which fit my small waisted son well as they were happy to customise the size.
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!
