August 13 - Make a Sit Upon

Its funny name tells what it is.  You sit upon it when the ground is damp or dusty.

To make one, first get a large piece of waterproof material, like oilcloth or plastic and cut it into two squares.  Next, put a cushion of stacked newspapers [that you have to cut to size] between the squares.  Now, fasten together with staples or stitches.  Your leader will show you how to make a running stitch or overcast stitch.  Be sure to staple or stitch in two pieces of tape to keep the edges from tearing apart.
