I love Pippi. I grew up watching the movies (both Swedish and American versions) and reading the books. I even dressed up as her for Halloween one year (4th grade maybe?).
She's so spirited and quirky. And I just love her spunk.
I want to make something Pippi-esque for my niece for Christmas. I'm thinking I might attempt this fantastic doll that Larissa made over at Mmmcrafts. I love the wry smile she gave Pippi, it's absolutely perfect.
In my quest for finding Pippi inspiration I stumbled across these Etsy finds:
And this Pippi kid's skirt/apron is pretty cute, I really like the fabric.
I wish I had some to make a little tote bag with.
I think I'll stick to the doll for now and see how that goes first.
If you haven't read the books yet, I highly recommend them. It's a classic Swedish children's book loved by all (or, at least, by most). Pippi was actually featured at the World Expo in Shanghai this year at the Sweden pavilion. The first two photos were taken at the Expo this year, a great experience!
"Now you'd better go home," said Pippi, "so that you can come back tomorrow. Because if you don't go home, then you won't be able to come back tomorrow."
