Fort Kits

Here are the only handmade things I made for the kids for Christmas. They're FORT KITS! I got the idea from a lot of blogs here, here, and here.
Here's my son's fort kit. I used a tie dye shirt that I made last summer for the bag and ties and an old table cloth that I had. I used clothespins that I had and bought clips, glow bars, suction cups, rope, and a flashlight for the kit.
I looped the tee shirt ties and sewed to each corner and middle. The kids can use the loops for rope or clips/clothespins.
I got tags from one of the websites (can't remember which one, sorry) and printed.
I got two sheets from Goodwill for $1.50/each. I used striped knit fabric that I had on hand for the ties. I love the polka dot sheet!!!! (it's actually a curtain with button holes).My daughter got the same things. I made her bag from the fitted sheet that came with the burgundy sheet. And of course, a Tinker Bell flashlight for her.
These are wonderful, creative gifts to make and so easy and CHEAP!!!!! The kids loved them and I know they will be used for years to come.
