This is my work in progress for our Double Dip in Sept '08.

I embroidered Mickey and Minnie for each member of our family and Pluto on the bottom for our dog -who will be a doggie camp while we are on the ship.

I used cotton fabric and ironed "Pellon Deco Bond" to the fabric to make the pockets stand up better.

Thanks! I was talking to DH about what to put on the top. We were thinking our names in Disney font? Any ideas?

Love, love, love these ideas and examples! Thanks for sharing the pics! I don't have time to do one before we sail soon, but we have another cruise booked already, so I just posted over on the Meet thread about doing these - I love them! I had read before about Fish Extenders but never could get a picture in my head about what they were. I'd love to see others!

This is really beautiful. You are so talented!

I hate to sound jaded... but you don't worry that some person who does not have the "Disney spirit" coming along and swiping this?

If your "type of fabric" question is around themes, then in addition to the Disney licensed fabrics, you also can consider nautical and pirate-themed fabrics.

Thank you for the kind words! I do love to sew and create things!

Actually, I worry about the same thing, but I'm going to put our family's names on it and hope that would make it less likely to dissappear

Great fabrics Kimberly! I love your FE! Is that the one you will use in Sept?

Where did you find the pirate fabrics?

Bring along a plastic 'zip' tie and you can attach it to the fish...just be sure you have something to cut the zip tie when your cruise is over.

(never travel without zip ties and duct tape)

I agree. I think the pirate fabrics are a *great* find! I actually found each of those at JoAnn's. I've looked all over for more pirate-related fabrics around Columbus, but I've been unsuccessful. I really do like those shown here though. They have a fun look.

The "under construction" Nemo-themed FE I'm making is not what we'll use on our cruise for our Double Dip in Sept. '08. I have found and purchased so many fabrics, I'm actually not sure which I'll end up with for us! Right now, I'm leaning towards a Mickey and Minnie large polka dot fabric I found in the early spring. Although, I may go with an illusioned Minnie Mouse or Goofy or even one of the pirate FE's. I just don't know yet?!!

Great idea! I was thinking of tying it to the fish with the hanging ribbon, but I like the zip tie a lot better!

I'm totally with you! In fact I'm not sure I will use this one because I just bought a new set of DCL designs. I also have a collection of Mickey Fabrics and have a great idea for a black and white one with Classic Mickey designs. Who knows what will end up on my fish? It's not like we don't have a little time to work on them.
