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! :thumbup:

Wow, that sure beats two
chairs and a sheet...

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. :eek:

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

I now make them with kids appliqued on the sides.
