So I made this Sit-Upon around June, but I just am getting around to posting about it. In my book 'A Daring Book for Girls' I found to a way to make the Sit-Upon. A comfy little mat to place and sit upon anywhere, any time.
I did not use water proof material, (in other words I broke the rules=:) but I think it turned out looking pretty good!
I had many choices of upholstery samples that I could use; I chose the darker red to use on the side facing down, and a lighter shade for sitting upon.
(Although now people have started sitting on the red side)
At first while I was making the Sit-Upon I threaded the material with my fingers. As you can guess that did not go very quickly.
Mom had the great idea to get a large needle for those holes:)
wow! How genius!
So, at first it was just a free for all, and everyone sort of just took the Sit-Upon and sat upon it. But I made a new system. On the beautiful black board in our beautiful kitchen I wrote who got the Sit-Upon. Now I take in all the remarks about tiredness, stress and the lack of sitting on the Sit-Upon. then I decide who gets it, and I write it on the board!
I am pretty proud of what a success it is!
