Easy Girl Scout Sit Upons

My girls are attending camp this summer with their Girl Scout troop.  So, I rustled up a few available Brownies and Juniors to make easy sit upons.  These little gems were pennies to make since I found the tablecloths at the Family Dollar and used ribbon and duck tape from our craft stash.Sit Upons 2Supplies:Sit upon materials

  • Vinyl Tablecloths (the kind with the felt backing)
  • Duck Tape
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Ruler or Seamstress’ Measuring Tape
  • Pencil
  • Needle and Thread (OPTIONAL)

I had the girls do their own measuring as to not miss out on a learning opportunity.  They made 15×15″ square sit upons.  Some chose to have the same print on both the back and the front, while other girls mixed and matched.  All were adorable!Sit Upon measuringLine up the squares back to back.  Using the duck tape, seal the edges.Sit Upon taping 1Sit Upon taping 2We added a ribbon so the sit upons could be bundled or wrapped.

Cut a 15″ length of ribbon and using a needle and thread, attach the ribbon to the center of the sit upon.  For a no-sew version, use duck tape to secure the ribbon.Sit Upon ribbonI chose not to have the girls fill them with padding such as newspaper so that they would fold better.  They fold to a tiny 5″ x 2 1/2″. Sit Upons 5Sit Upons 6Sit Upons in pocketSit Upons girls 3Now, just “sit upon” it!!
