One of the few things I learned in my 5 minutes in Girl Scouts was how to make what they called a “sit-upon”. I’ve recently learned other people call them by different names and made them in different ways. It’s a pad to use when sitting on the ground. I think we made them out of oilcloth table cloth material and news paper. It gave me the idea for this. I’ll use it to sit to sketch when I don’t want to carry my stool. I can sit on the ground and stay dry.
It’s made of cotton fabric interlined with marine vinyl and fleece. I liked this bright cotton print for it’s “painting” theme. The bottom is just heavy black fabric.
