I feel like I saw this fort a long time ago, but then forgot. Then last week I saw it again, and knew we had to make it. I purposely didn’t post hers on here because hers is 200 times cuter than mine.
Yesterday I bought a full sheet set to begin the project. This morning I was delightfully surprised to find when you cut the pillowcases open they were just slightly longer than the width and height of our table (enter side pieces). And then to find that the flat sheet was pretty much perfect for the top and remaining sides. Just under one hour of time and ta-da! A hastily built but already loved fort. Sure it’s not as cute as the one that the other lady built, but it sure makes quick and easy fort building. Maybe someday I will hem the door, make straps, etc. Yeah right. My next problem will be how to get the kids out to do anything else…
Fort naughtiness update:
About one minute after I wrote this (while the kids were happily playing in the new fort) I went downstairs to rinse out some laundry. I came back up and was pleased with how nicely the kids were playing in the fort together, no arguing, hitting, etc. I thought I would open the little door and peek at them just to see how cute they were. But sure enough, since they were getting along there was trouble going on. Upon lifting the door flap I found them huddled over Sammy’s snack plate with the carton of eggs, one having already been neatly cracked onto it. In Sammy’s hand was another egg which she looked about ready to break open, and Harmon told me “we were just having some eggs for a snack!” Nice.
