Love this one! Thanks for the ideas! I bought the Woody and Buzz Toy Story pillow sew and stitch fabric on clearance but just couldn't think about how I was going to use it to design a FE.

I do not sew but I guaranteed it will be glued and taped with TLC ;-)

I so wish I could find Mickey fabric in my local stores..

I searched and searched and finally found the blue stripped one at Joann's Fabrics mixed in with the disney fleece.

I like it but didn't jump for joy over it but I was desperate.

I do have extra, maybe I'll just redo mine without the Mickey heads... or use the mickey fabric as the background with plain pockets up front..

The ideas are endless aren't they?

Thanks everyone! I was so excited when I found the Toy Story fabric. It was DD's idea to have Slinky Dog as the dowel rod and I searched high and low to find the perfect size Slinky Dog but wasn't having much luck. I just happened upon the party favors at Hobby Lobby and they worked great. The monkeys were a last minute idea and we ran to Target at almost closing time and thankfully found them! "Buzz, the Monkeys aren't working, we're formulating another plan!", lol

And I'm not much of a sewer either. I can sew straight lines with a machine but that's it. Since I didn't have access to a machine, I did hand sew it and it took awhile, but I was very pleased with the outcome.

For our next cruise, I'm taking one that i took on our first cruise. The cruise is a surprise for the kids anyway so I wouldn't have time to work on it. It's the same design but has a Mickey theme

I used to have good luck at finding Disney fabric at our local Joanne's and other fabric stores. Even WalMart had a good selection -- back when ours used to carry fabric. Not so lucky anymore, but I have found a good/great selection on eBay!

What is the safe width for the Dream? Is 8 inches too wide for that ship? Too much to think about with this FE creating.

Ooooo I thought you were doing each one a different color, but if I had to pick it would be the yellow one!

I love your backing fabric, which is different from mine. I think the yellow is the exact same.



You have my vote!

LOVE YOURS!!!

I won't flame ya! hehehehe

I saw that fabric of yours on a website today - I'm using what I have, I've put too much energy in this already! LOL

The reddish one was my first 2 weeks ago and I've been playing w/ the idea for a week now whether I like it! LOL

You have 2 pockets, might be better off doing that - but assumed i was making 4 to put our names on it so it doesn't walk away
on our cruise! hehehe
But maybe I'll use your idea and make 2 larger pockets...

How did you make your mickey heads? Fabric? I used glitter cardstock and it's icky! LOL

How did you make your names on top - iron on?
Do tell .. do tell LOL

Well you could use the yellow as the pockets and then make a Mickey head out of the red. I think that would look nice. It would also minimize the amount of the red.

I'm just very conservative, so that was as "wild" as I could possibly get. All my quilts are always conservative, so it was hard not to be on the FE too. I did quilt the background fabric and the top and hand appliqued the logo and mickey heads on.

The Mickey heads are out of fabric (the same fabric I used on the top with the logo). I used my Cricut (Mickey font) to cut them out.

I printed the logo with our names at the top on my printer. I used printable fabric (got it at Joanns). I've made memory quilts this way, so it was what I thought of first.

And, thank you.
