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

If I could figure out how to insert a pic from my own laptop, I would. There is a Fb Group called FISH EXTENDER DISNEY CRUISE LINE where people have posted their pics of that and other FE's.

I finished up our IKEA FE yesterday. It is a bit wrinkled. I probably should have ironed it and if I had my old iron I would have, but I have melted poly like that before and didn't want to risk it on my new iron.

Forgive the mess on the table. We really did just finish it up when I took the picture so things were still drying.

My 6 year old helped me with this and did most of the design.

I have the IKEA chart too and have gotten some wonderful ideas from this thread.. One question: how do you plan to hang this on the hook? Is anyone adding a dowel rod to theirs?

I attached about a 2' length of Disney themed ribbon to each of the two upper corners. It worked well hanging from the fish.

Great idea

Thank you for sharing the ikea pockets. That is a great affordable option. I have an ikea near by, but it did let me add it to the shopping cart so it looks like you can order it online.

Ikea is about an hours drive from me. I was going to order online but shipping was $10- item is only $4.99. i checked on ebay was able to buy a new one for $10.99 with free shipping. I decided to go ahead and order it. It came today and looks great except it is pretty wrinked when you un fold it. I tried using downy wrinkle release but it did nothing. I am going to hang it in my bath and see if shower steam will help. Over all though I am VERY pleased and think it will be perfect once I do a little decorating.
