    Fort Kit for young boys

    I am looking for a pattern which some people call a "Fort Kit". I want to do this for a Christmas gift on Saturday! It is made out of fabric or possibly sheets. Anyone made one of these or similar?

    I have seen play houses that are made to fit over a card table.

    This is a tutorial I found when I googled "Card table forts". She used sheets.

    I would have loved that, as a young girl. Most of my friends (girls & boys) would have loved it, as well!

    My sibs and I had one of these as children 65 years ago. At age 6 or so I sneakily tried my first (and last!) Lucky Strike ciggie under that table! Thank God we didn't burn it down.

    I made my son one when he was 5 with chairs and a sheet, he had a ball. Helps them use their imagination.

    Ha Ha we made our own out of chairs and sheets and what ever else we could string up
    Never let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    I have all the materials for a great camp "fort", pattern, new felt etc. I tried to sell it here and was not allowed to. You won't have it by Saturday but I sure would like to move it out of my sewing room.
