When I was a wee gurl I loved Pippi Longstocking!
While I was wandering the aisles of my local JoAnns, I ended up in the book section.
I was lookin' for inspiration and boy did I find the perfect book.
It's filled with lots of fun projects and the first one I had to make was the Pippi rug.
Anything with clogs is a good thing.
For the skirt portion, I used an embroidered pillowcase I thrifted and chopped up a bunch of bright fabrics I had gathering dust in my cupboard upstairs.
Some are thrifted sheets or old shirts.
Even though this is a rug, I certainly can see it as a wallhanging.
I mean, who really wants to get something so cute dirty?
I have declared in my household tis only MOI who can set her tippy toes on Pippi.
If you'd like to make one, there's a tutorial online here so you really don't have to buy the book to make one.
But I do recommend it.
