Ge0rgette2 - Do you have any more of that red fabric? I'm thinking you could cut another Mickey head in the plain red to glue right over the black patterned ones that you don't like. Maybe it's the two patterns that are clashing and the plain red would work better? Cut one out and lay it down without gluing to see if you like it. I have to say, though, that I think it looks great! I'm hoping that my cruise will do the fish extenders and hopefully I will be able to come up with something that looks half as nice as yours!

Thanks... i love it exc for the Mickey heads in the middle (

I thought I'd like it and should have laid out first.. but DUH! I didn't .. Never did one of these before and I'm really wingin' it ....

I do have the red left over... I'm going to make a larger head and see if it works better that way.. I was just thinking black cause that's what his ears/head is.. but red might be awesome

The black and the blue stripes are clashing .. that's why. I'll repost a red in a min and you tell me

I really wanted our names on it and bought iron on transfer paper and I didn't like that either

I guess i'm just a pain in the ...

Just another little tip? If you don't like the red...try a solid black Mickey head...even make it a tad bigger. In decorating, black really makes the mark, makes things stand out (ever noticed things, numbers outlined how much better they look?). And you've got enough patterns, so the solid black would pull it all together with your black Disney and little Mickey head. If you don't have the material...you can go to a Walmart, buy two pieces of 'stickable' black felt, cut out your heads...and 'voila'..!!! Just another thought! And hey, you've done a great job!

I used black glittered cardstock...

I think I might go black that was my original thought but only had the black flowery fabric..

I think the black looks better than the red. The black just pops a little more than the red one.

You could put the names on the black Mickey heads if you still want the names. A metallic pen perhaps would pop nicely?

Great idea. I used glitter cardstock unsure if the metallic would work. You think!?

I'm loving the black micky heads. stands out nicely. Also love your white micky hands at the top and they way you have alternated the yellow and blue border.
Sending prayers that all goes well for you with the storm.
