I ended up ironing mine. I set the iron to the synthetic setting, kept moving the iron and stopped every few seconds to make sure the thing wasn't melting LOL. On hindsight, I would only have removed the green trim that comes on the item; the red and blue are nautical colors anyway, right?

I ironed mine on the lowest steam setting and it worked great

What great ideas and great Fish Extenders pictures! Thank you everyone!!!

I love my original FE's (there are 7 of us, so we need 2), but they have run their course. We have had them on a Panama Canal cruise, Alaska, Baltic, and Dover to Barcelona repo trip. They have seen better days. So, for our Med cruise this summer, it is time to think about new ones, and these looks GREAT and EASY!! Thanks again all for sharing!!!

I got mine ironed and it looks so much better! I stuffed the pockets with hand towels and used the lowest setting with steam. I have ordered off ebay some Disney Patches to put on the pockets. I'm planning on using fabric glue to attach them. Has anyone tried putting grommets at the top?

We have five in our family and I bought two Ikea hangers. I cut off one pocket and sewed the two pockets at the bottom of the one hanger. I printed images on iron on transfer paper and the. Ironed them onto the fe or each person. I didn't have trouble at all.

You have to download your picture to a photohosting site (like photobucket, I use tinypic) and copy and past the IMG code here.
