I have done the pillowcase in the parks (used an embroidery hoop to hold fabric taught -- worked great!), so perhaps I'll try the photo mat idea for the cruise. How awesome!

You can use Sharpies without them running in the wash. You have to set them with high heat in the dryer for 10-15 minutes first, then you can wash as usual. I used Sharpies on all the t-shirts we got signed when my boys where little and we went to DisneyWorld often. I used fabric markers a couple of years ago with my daughter on the cruise, and it worked the same.

Has anyone ever gotten anything with the signatures? Just wondering!
I included some candy with mine...a bag of starburst (don't send chocolate). I had a black photo mat signed with a silver Sharpie. I wanted to make sure that I got a few specific signatures, so I made a note specifying those certain ones in particular. I got all I wanted and then some! Worth a shot to ask for a special note or something...I think the treats help!

Our mat was delivered to our stateroom on the last night.

Be sure to test the markers first because a lot of them show up lighter then you would hope.

Is there a minimum thread count on the pillowcases that work best? I've seen everything from 200 to 500 (which were pillowcase protectors with a zipper).

Does the photo mat need to be a specific size? If not, does anyone have suggestions as to sizes that would work nicely?

Loving this idea!

We are going on our first cruise and taking our two children and granddaughter. I love this idea. Now all I have to do is decide exactly what to drop off to have them sign. Anyone have any other ideas other than pillowcase, mat or shirt.

I love all the great info on these boards!!!

August '08 here we come. We had a blast!

August '12 can't wait. Another great trip!!

so is it one item per room? We are traveling without children but would love to have something done for our son.

I like the idea of a sailor hat. You guys are so awesome with ideas.

I saw someone post that they took a blank Vinylmation with them to be signed. Anyone else try this? I'm thinking that'd look awesome, and it'd be a lot easier to show off in my room than a pillow case.

I had a large pink vinylmation signed on our last cruise.

Yes we did a 2 large Vinylmations (pink and red) on our Fantasy cruise last year. Used black Sharpies and they both turned out wonderfully! They are displayed in our daughters rooms and they are a great memento of our trip!

Anyone have a photo of the signed vinylmations? How many signatures do they hold?

I have pillow cases kids saved from oceaneer club last cruise! So glad I was savy enough to grab 2 more when boys weren't originally interested in the coloring a pillow case activity their younger sister did!

I prefer fabric markers for pillow cases as I've had good luck with them for other projects and my daughters artwork from last cruise held up

Question is how can I put 3 pillowcases with fabric markers and vinylmation with sharpie in one bag and not have CMs confused or do I use 2 zip lock bags?

My husband and I are cruising alone for our 15th anniversary this Sept. and leaving our 4 kiddos at home. They are excited to spend a whole week with Grandma and Grandpa in Chicago, but of course are pretty jealous that we are cruising Disney without them. I'd love to surprise them with signed pillowcases. I've read the limit is 2 items per stateroom. Any ideas on how to get 4?
