New Capes + Giveaway Day!


I haven't posted anything about capes in awhile ... yup ... still doing that. It's going great still. It's almost been a year since I officially opened Plum Pear Apple -- who would have thought I'd still be doing it a year later and have made almost 500 capes?! It's insane!

Superhero Capes for Superhero Kids

Go visit my Superhero Capes shop at Plum Pear Apple for your chance to win! Or read more about Giveaway Day below.

One of my favorite sewing websites is the shop and blog Sew, Mama, Sew. They had an International Giveaway Day in the fall a few months ago where they invited people to do a giveaway on their different sites and then Sew, Mama, Sew compiled a giant central list that you could surf through and enter different giveaways while discovering tons of new great blogs. It was fun and a huge success, so they decided to do another one. I joined in this round and am taking the opportunity to giveaway a cape (of course!) as well as debut my new product - Ready-to-Ship capes.

Most of my buisness will still be custom capes, but I'm going to try out these premade capes to see if anyone is interested in buying something that can be shipped to them right away, instead of having to wait for a custom cape that can take over 2 weeks depending on my production time right then. These premade capes are great for me, too, because I can make a whole boatload of them when orders are slow to have in inventory, and then just sell them as I go.

A few sneak peeks of what the Ready-to-Ship capes will be:

star + blue stripe star + blue stripe

cotton ball + paisley poppy cotton ball + paisley poppy

They're still made by me with the same high level of workmanship, but they don't come with an initial on them & you don't get to customize the different fabrics and colors.

Go visit my blog at Plum Pear Apple for your chance to win one of these capes, and then go visit the Sew, Mama, Sew blog for a list of hundreds of other giveaways!


  1. The ready-to-ship is awesome... it's actually nice for siblings - could be handed down easily, since it's not personalized! Love it, Erin :)

  2. Erin! You are so freakin talented. I haven't gotten on for a bit but you have done so many things on here. Do you ever sleep?!!! They are so cute too. I am so impressed. I knew you were doing the capes, but I didn't know about all the other stuff you could do. You're amazing!
