Introduction: How to Build an Awesme Blanket Fort

Hello,in this instuctible i will show you how to make a fort out of if you like forts (and blankets) than this is the instructible for you.
p.s this is my first instructible and sorry about the pics, i all ready had the fort built when i wanted to make this so i just put another part on.(this instructible will be entered in the burning questions round 6.5 so please vote)

Step 1: Materials

you will need:
1: tape i find that blue tap works best
2:blankets lots of em
4:safety pins if needed
5:some kind of tall suport i used a telescope
6:some other kind of support like pvc pipe or something(it has to be short but not to short)
7 some chairs
8:and some pillow cases

Step 2: Finding a Place and Building

first you need to fing a large space close to walls and object(like bookshelves tables ec). then you put the large tall support in the middle and drape a sheet over it

Step 3: Tape

then tape the ends of the sheet on the wall and then tape or safety pin another sheet to one end of the origanal sheet

Step 4: Adding Supports

then just keep taping sheets on and taping them to the wall until its as big as you want it, then put chairs in on the sides as needed, then make your entrance and crawl inside. when you see a sging spot or want to make a spot higher just put a short support of needed lenght into the spot.

Step 5: Pillows

now there may be some gaps in the sheet on the side so to fill them up ,if you want to, use pillows, but still there might be a small gap between the sheet and pillow and if your like me, then youll want it dark in your fort so , tape pillow cases to the sides.

Step 6: Your Done!!!

now you are done, bask in the envy of all your friends because your fort is aweseme

Step 7: Optional

if you want you can tape flashlights in your fort for light and you also could stash food and water in there for survivel

    My fort are huge! WE build them off of an L-shaped couch, and we slept in it! There are little peek holes so we can watch movies! I'm only 10, and I make them all the time, and if I can do it, you can do. And anyway stop bugging the author about spelling issues. I think it's fine and I love to misspell things and its the internet, like DUHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

     not you the author he has not used spellcheck on this ible yet

    well, for some reason instructables doesn't have spell check when your doing making instructables.i could be wrong, but today i was making one, and it would't do it.

    hmmmm well a red line should appear anyway if you are using a windows program
