My Pippi

Hi there!

Skiddi, a miniature friend and I are big fans of Pippi Longstocking, so we decided to make a Pippi scenery for Christmas. Here is my Pippi (I know she doesn´t look at all like the wonderful Inger Nielson from the Pippi movies - but I really like how she turned out). Made of Fimo clay and a body from pipe cleaners.

I was very lucky because Skiddi found a picture of this apron somewhere in the net. I only had to print it out on fabric, folded in the fabric´s edges with glue, sewed the pockets on and it was ready :-) As printing on an old hanky fabric worked so well I also printed a digital scrapbooking background on the fabric to use for the  blouse. 

The little rug is a picture from a real quilt I found on pinterest. Not everything works so easy...unfortunately this starving cat was acutally supposed to be a pug dog, lol :O)

Pippi now needs her monkey...wonder with which species I will be ending up when I am ready with it :-)
Hope you like my little doll!

There are some other things I want to show you but it is difficult to find time for blogging. Hopefully this is getting easier in a few weeks.

Have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs, Sandra


  1. She looks great Sandra, I can only imagine all the mischief she could get into!

  2. Oh My...! Sandra, your Pippi is adorable!♥ I am also a big fan of Peppi Pitkätossu and now you made me to want Pippi in my dollhouse too! Well, a few years ago I had one very strong little girl living in our house...You can find her from here...
    But for the mini Pippi...maybe I have to turn to you one day! :-) Hopsulahei! Hugs, piikko

  3. Amazing Pippi doll!! Great memories fron my childhood,miniregards.

  4. Your Pippi doll is fantastic, Sandra! I love her face so much, and the way she moves. Her clothes are so cute--I love everything about her! The quilt is fantastic too. You say you used old hanky fabric in your printer? How did you do it? Is it an inkjet printer? do you tape the hanky fabric to a piece of paper and put it in the printer? I really want to know, because I want to learn how to print fabrics. Any help would be very much appreciated! Great job on these projects--I love your cat too! xo Jennifer

  5. A very cute Pippi. I love her freckled face. Great work!
    Hugs, Drora

  7. Your Pippi doll is amazing Sandra!! You've given her such a wonderful face. I really love the pigtails and her fantastic clothes!! You do amazing things with fimo and I adore the little felted cat too. I think it's turned out perfectly, even if it was meant to be a pug dog :0)
    Hugs ♥ vicky ♥

  8. Wow Sandra, Sie IST Pipi Langstrümpf, the smile on her naughty face! Great work, now the monkey, I am very curious to see Mr. Nilson!! No time for blogging? Yups, me neither. But you've found your clay back :D!!
    Warm hugs, Ilona

  9. Wenn Du anfängst, Herrn Nilsson zu machen und dabei den Kleinen Onkel rausbekommst, soll es uns recht sein... ;O) Deine Pippi ist einfach grandios geworden - genau so, wie Pippi sein muss. Ihr Gesicht ist einfach wunderschön - wie es sein muss, bei jemandem, der sich die Welt macht, wie es ihr gefällt...

    Liebe Grüße
    Flutterby und Birgit

  12. Hi!
    Pippi looks fantastic! I like Pippi too :)

  13. Dear Sandra,
    You have done a great job on your Pippi doll! She is simply adorable... Those braids! Too sweet.
    Thank you so much for coming over to meet my wee mice and leaving such a kind comment.
    Wishing you a beautiful weekend.
    p.s. In regards to the shell for the mermaid... Had you thought of maybe making a shell of polymer? That way you could make the size you need.. Just a thought.

  14. It is a fantastic Pippi your have been made​​. The clothes and hair fits so well. Very well made.

    I am also Pippi fan, I have read it over and over again for my children.

  15. Hach... da war sogar ich noch jung...
