What? Re-do it? Like from the beginning? I guess you could make another and then pick which one you like better, but I really do think your original looks great!

I have a cricut too, bought it years ago in Walmart figuring I'd use it more only started using it this May for my daughters communion. I have no clue what i'm doing - the cardstock I have seems to be too thick for the machine - even if i try a few times and adjust the settings.

Printable fabric.. uhoh - another run to Joann's! LOL
My husband is going to kill me another run to the fabric store.
Could I use that for our names instead of iron on transfers?


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. [/QUOTE]

Hope that helps.

Love it! And congrats on getting married!

Goodness, there are over 106 pages and thousands of responses on this beastly thread. We are going on our 2nd cruise and this will be our first with Fish Extenders. We'll actually be on our cruise over Christmas. Can you please give me ideas of FE gifts? Also, if you make FE's and sell them...send me a PM with pictures and your prices. Thanks everyone! Cindy

Try www.esty.com for Fish Extenders. I just purchased mine there. It is been custom made for us and I'm kinda excited about it. Our cruise is over New Years, so I can't wait!! As for gifts, I'm trying to figure that one out myself. I'm not crafty at all . But once I figure something out, I will let you know.

Call me an FE snob but, for my money, no one makes a better FE holder than gradysmommy at eBay. We've used ours on 4 cruises so far and it still looks brand new, holds up well, and is really extremely well made.

When delivering FEs you get to see everyone's FE holders and, quite honestly, some of them are terrible (i.e., the plastic bag from a clothing store that someone stuck on their fish -- really, people, you could at least use a Disney bag ) and some home-made ones were really difficult to use (the pockets extended all the way down so your FE gift disappeared down the hole) or looked like they were about to fall apart or were already ripping from the weight of the FE gifts.

I'm crafty and can sew but it was just so worth it to me to spend $30 to get a quality product. It would have cost me far more than that in materials and valuable time to make my own. And it's kind of cool to see others that she's made -- you feel like you're in a special club.

Ours is going on our 5th and 6th cruises this year, so my cost per unit value is down to about $5 a trip. Does this mean that after 30 cruises, it's free?!
