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.Supplies:
- Vinyl Tablecloths (the kind with the felt backing)
- Duck Tape
- Ruler or Seamstress’ Measuring Tape
- 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!Line up the squares back to back. Using the duck tape, seal the edges.We 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.I 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″. Now, just “sit upon” it!!
