I placed stick-on letters and fishy things on each pocket, along with our names (I made two extenders for two families).
Mine are about 38" long, and 8" wide.
I don't know how to post pics here, but will send my picture to anyone who wants to see. If anyone else can post my
fish extender picture for me, that would be great!
We're on the Wonder January 20.

Wow, doing it by hand! That must have taken a long time!!!!! Upload your pic to photobucket and then get the address by right clicking the picture and going to properties. Copy and paste the address and put it under insert picture in the toolbar.

Where are you guys finding all the cute fabrics?

I'm SO not a sew-ing person so I have no idea, but my MIL is probably going to sew one for us now.

I know we have a Hancock Fabrics and a Joann Fabrics in the general area, but I can't say that I've ever seen that red and black Mickey head fabric. I LOVE that!

$2.00-Wow, that's so cute! I spent a lot more making two. The Mickey Head red fabric was in the remnants at Hancock Fabrics. I had enough to make headbands for all the ladies in our group (six).
Yesterday I bought some cute pirate fabric so I just may HAVE to try another fish extender.
We have five kids in our group, sailing on the Wonder in January (15 of us), and we plan to take some trinkets and stuff to put in their pockets each day. It's just another fun thing to do, and there's sure lots of fun things to do on the ship.
