Ikea FE

If anyone has finished their FE made from the IKEA organizer could you post pictures or share your experiences please ? I have about a week and a half to go and so far it's sitting there staring at me blank. I'm not very crafty which is why I bought that IKEA organizer in the first place...but I'd like to personalize ours. I am thinking of glue gunning Mickey heads made out of foam...but I'm not sure how well they will stick, or if felt might be better.
Crafty cruisers, I know you are out there! Help please!!

What about iron on designs? You can ask one of the wonderful DISgners here on boards to create you something then you print on iron on and you are all set.

That was my original plan... But it says do not iron. It is polyester, I'm worried it would melt! Eek!

Idk if this is too late to help you, but I saw on the Fb page that someone ironed it anyway. So I had DH unearth my iron (only use it a few times a year ROFL), and I dusted it off and realized that there is a polyester setting! And I don't have an ironing board, let alone a sleeve-thingy, so I took a small cutting board (clean) and stuck that into each pocket as I ironed it. It still wasn't easy though.

Because when I unrolled my soon-to-be FE, one pocket was fine, but the middle and bottom were very wrinkly.

Also, I used just fabric markers for our names. (WARNING: Fabric Markers can BLEED!) I bought that Walmart Disney ribbon, the black background with the red and yellow Mickey Heads? And I ripped off the stripes that came on the pockets and glued the ribbon on with fabric glue. In hindsight, I probably could have left on one of the stripes because that black Mickey-head ribbon is barely wide enough to cover both sets of holes. It's definitely NOT wide enough to cover both rows of holes AND overlap the raw edge from where the lower stripe was. After I glued on the ribbon and let it sit overnight, I then went back over the thing and glued the under-flap where it stuck up a lot IMHO lol.

Then I found this "Wish Upon a Star" pewter charm in my stash and sewed it to the top.

I am trying to put the picture of it here http://i931.photobucket.com/albums/a...g?t=1360035096 [QUOTE=Fabooliss;47227491]

Go to Joanns Fabric and buy disney scrapbook stickers - they are 3-d and stick very well to fabric - I have had several on mine last for quite a few cruises!

Ikea FE

Just thought I would share my experience with creating a no-sew FE with the Ikea 3 pocket organizer. It was very easy, took me one evening and about $20 in supplies (biggest expensive was some ribbons for Minnie Mouse heads, I could have saved myself $12 and Macygyver'd something myself but oh well....)
-I ripped off the ribbon and tassels
- Ironed with steam on medium setting to get wrinkles out
- Cut out Mickey and Minnie Heads from lightweight felt (Michaels carries this small sheets for $.49 each)
- Used fabric glue to attach to organizer-the glue seeps through the porous material so stuff some crumpled up newspaper inside the pocket to absorb any excess glue.
-Fabric glued on some ribbon where the original ribbon was ripped off and viola!! All done!
-I am thinking of adding names to the Mickey and Minnie heads but havent decided how to do that yet.
-will post picture when I gets chance

How about peel and stick felt? Or those brads (sp?) that poke through and split open. Like in a pocket school folder. Maybe you can find colored ones at the office supply store. You can make it look polka dottie

I got patches from a fabric store (Belle for DD4, Mater for DS6, and Micky and Minnie for DH and I) and used fabric glue to attach them to the pockets. The kids wrote their names with fabric markers on their pockets and then wrote Mommy and Daddy on our pocket. It definitely has a home made feel to it! I'll try to post a pic when I get home from work tonight.

I cut out small Mickey and Minnie shaped heads (about 4" in diameter) and sewed one to each pocket. I attached red polka dot ribbon to the ears for Minnie. (You could probably glue them if you don't sew.) I also bought Disney themed ribbon (Wal-Mart) and attached it to the top of the FE so that it hung from the cabin fish.

I thought it turned out really cute! Unfortunately, I don't have a photo readily available but will try to get one later.
