I made a cube-ish bag with a shoulder strap to hold all of the fort "materials." I got the basic design from the Ruffled Silhouette Tote Bag made by Linda at Craftaholics Anonymous. I just modified the measurements of the bag to what I need to put inside and the strap to the little one who would be carrying it.
Every fort needs a sheet or two, but sheets with ties attached are much better. So I stitched the edges of 16-inch strips of double fold bias tape closed and then attached one to each corner off a twin sized sheet.
I did this for two sheets because two sheets means a bigger, cooler, awesome-er fort. And who doesn't want that?
Other things I included in the kit: rope, flashlight (with batteries), large clips, and clothes pins.
To pull it all together I printed off the "Deluxe Fort" tag (which I modified slightly from the original using Picnik), laminated it, and attached it to the handle of the bag with a book ring.
And there you have a Build Your Own Fort Kit.
