Non Disney FE (Duct tape) OK?

I'm making a duct tape FE and they don't sell Disney duct tape.

I'm not crafty so I want to make this simple.

I bought Mario brothers and Angry birds duct tape for my 10 and 8 year old and hearts for me. I'm going to make a solid black background and add the decorative duct tape on the pockets. I may use the mario and angry birds in a Mickey head shape.

My question is is it OK to go non disney???

of course it is - but I may add on our cruise this past week a cabin next to mine did one with duct tape - it was very cute - but not functional at all. We typically saw their stuff on the floor because the pockets didn't expand much at all. So, just ensure your pockets can expand a few inches and you will be fine.

I am also not crafty at all. I just purchased a medium size craft bag at the craft store (the paper kind) and taped some pictures to it. It worked out great and held everything we needed.

I made ours out of treasure map fabric, for a vaguely pirate theme. I wanted them to have other uses after the cruise, and they were more neutral that way.

All of our FEs have been non-Disney. We did a girl's trip and our FE had pretty painted fabric a different color for each pocket with flower and flip flop iron on's and crystal letters for our names. Our Alaskan FE had different animal material (bears, wolves, moose and whales) for the pockets on wave material and I have not started on our Eastern Caribbean one yet but it will also be non-Disney they are all also non-sew and super cute.

I am completely incapable of sewing and did a duct tape one. I used a grocery bag (reusable, cloth). I did the top 1/3 in black duct tape, the bottom 2/3 in red and then glued buttons for the Mickey bag. It was large, didn't have expansion problems and could be used or and over since it didn't do a different pocket for each person. I recommend it totally!
