Girl Scout Sit Upon Made With Jeans

Share this!

This is a great Girl Scout project to make for outdoor fun.

This Girl Scout sit upon made with jeans, adorable and so much fun to make.  It is even more fun to take out into the world and use on adventures!  I love it because it gives the chance to use fabric scraps too so it’s like a double win.  The fabric top is fun and the denim bottom is sturdy which is perfect because it will be on the ground. This is one of the best Girl Scout Craft Ideas!

Girl Scout Sit Upon Recycled Denim

Material Needed to make a Girl Scout Sit Upon:

How to make a Girl Scout recycled denim sit upon:

  1. Sew fabric squares together to create a square that measures at least 18 by 18 inches.  Do the same with pieces of denim from an old pair of jeans.  If the jeans are large enough, cutting a leg open might be enough.  Add a pocket for extra fun!

2. Cut a circle with a 18 inch diameter from each.

3. There will be an inch around the edge of the foam.

4. Sew the pieces together, front sides facing in, leaving an 8 inch opening. and flip the fabrics.  

5. Roll the Fairfield World Cushion Foam and insert it into the opening.

6. Sew the opening up with a needle and thread.

7. Sew ribbon to the side to create a handle if desired.

Tips for Girl Scout projects:

  • The simple ideas can be taught by older girls to younger girls.
  • Group projects are great for building friendship and connection.
  • Try to incorporate Girl Scout cookies in fun new ways!
  • Service projects are more fun with a personalized craft or two.

CREATIVE CRAFTS RECYCLED EDITION – Day Two

I am excited to be partnering with Meg from Makeable Crafts and Beth from Creatively Beth to bring you four days of recycled craft projects.  This is the second day!

Beth is sharing this stunning patriotic wreath made with flip flips!

Meg turned a cardboard shipping box into this totally fabulous storage container.  Check out how she did it.

For the record, I LOVE Kathy from The Crafty Chica.  She is one of the kindnest, most loving and creative people in the universe.  She recycled bottle caps to make these fantastic magnets.
