I had fun stitching up these cute situpons for my school's Girl Scout troop. Since they are older (4th graders) and there were only 5 girls, we decided to machine sew them. I used the Portable Tree Stump pattern from Sewing School 2 and we even had time to add a pocket!
The fabric is actually plastic coated table cloths from the Dollar Store. I got the ones that are fabric backed. This way, the situpons are waterproof and can be wiped off easily.
A few girls were new to machine sewing, but they picked it up right away and everyone had success. We shared 3 machines for 5 girls.
They even earned a Sewing patch for their vests!
