Weekend Wish List:
BabyPop on Etsy
Etsy is one of my very favorite places to shop for gifts. You always know you’re going to find something completely unique. And best of all, you’re supporting independent artists as you go.
This week’s pick is an extra special one. BabyPop Designs is run by Sherry Aikens, a blogging friend of mine. These superhero capes and costumes are made in her home right here in Philadelphia.
With an extensive background (31 years!) in sewing, a bachelor’s in fashion design and 16 years in the apparel industry, Sherry really knows her stuff.
And it shows.
Her capes have been featured on Good Morning America and Inc. magazine, and in backyards across the country.
All her work is made to order – you choose your color, your logo and, of course, your superhero letter.
The capes are made from high-grade satin and sewn with expert professional sewing. The BabyPop superhero letters are made from environmentally-friendly felt, made from recycled soda bottles!
Best of all, she knows that every kid deserves to feel like a superhero, so she keeps her prices very affordable, starting at just $17 for a personalized cape.
She also makes the coolest lightning bolt masks and princess masks. And they’re only $4.50 each, so these would be the perfect birthday party favor!
Be sure to check out the rest of her shop. There’s a lot there to choose from!
