Homemade gift for Little Nephew

One of my little nephews was the happy recipient of a homemade fort kit this past Christmas. My forays into Pinterest have been relatively mind boggling in their success. He loved it, so that proves it.
Here's what I did.
I used a cloth Christmas gift bag with a tie to double as a storage bag and a gift bag.
 Bought two inexpensive twin sized flat sheets, and sewed loop of cord on each corner and one halfway down each side. Then I added a loop to the center of the sheet in case there was some way to suspend it.
 I included extra cord,
  an inexpensive flashlight , glo sticks,
and Clothespins and clips for reinforcements.
 Lastly, I made a scrappy label for the bag and added  directions and the contents.
It was a fun project and easy as pie. Aunt Jen Jen is a big fan of imaginative play and gifts that are different than anything else they get. I heard it was a huge hit. Success!
