Etsy Sellers We Heart: Super Love for BabyPop Designs

One of our favorite companies that we have super love for is BabyPop Designs. We first met Sherry from BabyPop at the Type-A Parent Conference in 2010 and fell in love with her capes faster than the speed of light!

Each cape is handcrafted with loving care to your specifications and based on your child’s favorite cape colors, and logo. The personalized initial make them a REAL superhero or princess. Her superhero capes shields and custom letters use felt made from recycled soda bottles, so her products are good for the environment and fun for the kids to dress-up!

Saving one backyard at a time!

BabyPop SuperHero Capes

BabyPop is more than just capes. They are purveyors of full costumes, SuperHero Masks, gloves and will even dress up your favorite teddy bear or four-legged friend! Want one for yourself? Sherry makes costumes for adults as well. We’re thinking about capes that say “Crafty Gals!”

You can find Sherry’s designs over at BabyPop and on Etsy. Tell her Straight Up Crafty sent you!
