This is a link to a post I did about my own fish extender. I am no expert seamstress, but managed to put something together. I included a link to two youtube videos that really helped me with the overall structure and the pleats. Hope it works and hope its helpful
Thanks!

I watched the second video. I'm not sure I completely understand, but I'm going to give it my best shot tomorrow! LOL!

Okay - working on my FE for about 2 days on and off when I feel.. I'm making a no sew one, as I'm not a good machinist...

I've been using some hem tape, etc... had the best intentions and knew what I wanted to do.

I've made 4 pockets for us being a family of 4 - spent time making iron-on's.. pleating these pockets putting on some ribbon... and I DISLIKE what i'm doing so much ... GRRRR!!!
I just had to vent..

I am going to take a breather from it tonight and maybe buy some different fabric, keeping it all the same color and leaving it at that.

How awful to hate what you're doing!!! If you post a pic, I bet you'll get lots of creative and crafty ideas so you'll end up with something you like using what you've got. There are so many great 'interpretations' of an FE, maybe just looking at some old posts will inspire you

Good luck!!!

Target - Fish Extenders

I can not sew out of the life of me, so I searched and searched for something as well. Just like the one from Target, I found a Home Organizer at JoAnn Fabrics - the items are on clearance for about $5.99 so hopefully the stores by you will still have some in stock. The item is labeled SmartSpace Hanging Organizer with 5 pockets - Just in case the image does not show (College room organization)

Happy Shopping and Cruising!

Hi, That is the same brand that I brought on last week they had them on sale for 60% off the problem is that they are a little over 13 inches wide, but they are fabulous and I know that I can really make it look so cute. What colors did they have and what color did you get?

I couldn't decide on the color so I bought black and a teal blue.
I agree, it would look perfect all decorated!
Oh dear, I hope that it will work out in terms of width. Any luck finding out?

Well, I took the organizer out to see how one could make simple adjustments (keeping in mind that I can not sew )

Good news is that the sides can be folded in since the top portion is cardboard. Some safety pins to secure the folds in should do the trick ( extra safety pins are always good to have in case of an emergency)

And that would make the home made Fish Extender about 8 inches in width!

I sure hope this idea works!

I was torn between the same two colors but I got the black. I folded mine in as well but I am a bit scared of the cardboard at the top, I was thinking about cutting the back seam and cut part of the cardboard so that when I fold it, it would look neater. I am not that crafty but I have caught the craft bug so we will see. Please make sure that you post a pic when you are finished. When are you going on your cruise? we go the end of Sept. I know that this might sound strange but I was thinking I could hang it over the door with the hooks?

I have quite awhile until our FIRST Disney cruise - Thanksgiving November 2012. However, with that said I am off for a month because I had a recent surgery. I am recovering well -slowly but surely. Figured I would never have this time again to be "crafty" when I go back to work. So I am planning away.

I thought about hanging over the door as well, but I am having too much fun creating door signs as well.

BTW love the name Evan - One of our twin boys name is Evan as well

Definitely I will share pictures once it is done. Please do the same!
I bought on eBay Mickey and Minnie fabric iron on - 6 character shapes for $1.99 - It would probably cost more if I bought fabric and make it myself. LOL
