Sewing a “sit-upon” for nature studies
The kids spent another sick day at home yesterday…
… So in the time that they watched Kung Fu Panda, I sewed 5 sit-upons.
Sit-upons: something to sit-upon while outside.
This was a project I had been putting off because there was always something else to be done. So, I took advantage of the situation and decided to just make them already!
Here’s the lowdown on how to make them…
- I used a plastic tablecloth per sit-upon.
- I turned it inside out, sewed it up, leaving a hole to turn it right side out.
- Turn it right side out
- Top stitch around the whole thing, being sure to close the hole.
- Sew a few lines from the edge to the middle to ensure that the two pieces lay together nicely.
- Your done!
I surprised the kids this morning with their sit-upons, new journals and pencils!
Later today, I plan on sewing them together for him!
He was making owl calls… And we heard one call back to him!!
He shall now be called The Owl Whisperer! LOL
The kids did a great job drawing what they saw!
Eli even wrote by himself – it says “this is awesome”!
It turned out beautifully! Hello SPRING!
