Hand-knitted pouffes & Mini Boden

A slightly different blog on Edna today - interiors and girl's clothing. I had to write about the gorgeous new addition to my lounge...this teal, hand-knitted pouffe.

I've wanted one of these for ages. We wanted something we could use for extra seating when we have friends over but didn't have room for another chair. But, whenever I find these knitted pouffes online they're pretty expensive. I spotted one in Next recently and even that was £120.

So imagine my delight when I spotted this - handmade and only £50!

It was being sold at my area's wonderful monthly market, the West Norwood Feast. They have a retro market, food, gardening and arts and crafts, which is where I found my treasure.

Unfortunately, they're not available online but if you're in South London and fancy one of these yourself, they'll be sold at a new cafe opening in Streatham (on 15th April) called Serendipity. The sister of the woman who made this is opening the cafe and will be stocking her handmade items. You can find out more on twitter @serendipitysw16

Needless to say, anything new entering our house is commandeered by the smallest member of our household! I love the dress she's wearing in this photo, a present from her lovely Aunty Cathie from Mini Boden. I love clashing florals with stripes, as she's wearing here.

Clothes from Mini Boden are always a bit of a treat but they do have good sales, so that you can pick up a great quality item for a reasonable price. These are some of my current favourites.

Apron pinnie - £20-22

House & bird print jersey dress - £14-16

Jersey dungarees - £18

Mustard printed dress - £17.60-£24

Parrot print skirt - £22-24
Probably more than I'd spend on a skirt for a little one
but I do love this print...for myself too! The skirt
is available in lots of other prints starting at £14.30.

  1. The stitching is well done and is a good value for how nice it looks. The leather is soft and it should be comfortable to wear. I'd like to recommend this mens leather jackets to others, but then there would be much more people wearing them and I would be less cool, just kidding, you can find it in!
