We haven't cruised yet but will be next month. I just made my FE and was thinking the same thing. I decided to go a little more generic on my FE (just embroidered our Last name at the top and our names on each pocket) so that I can use it in my kitchen to put mail, notes, etc in. It already really looks great but I can't wait to see it hanging on the little fish outside our stateroom. Just 40 days left before we leave for Florida! 1 week at WDW then a wonderful week on the Magic!

Hope this helps.

That's a great idea to use it for sorting everyone's post, knick-knacks, etc. We aren't putting our names on the FE - it will be blank - which looks a bit 'boring' but we're trying to create a little sense of privacy / security. I may just put first initials on everyone's pocket so at least there's an idea of whose is which!

I have just been reading this thread and wanted to say that we will soon be enbarking on our 6th DCL cruise and we have had different FEs for each. This has been necessary for 2 reasons. 1. We personalised them with the name of the ship and the date and 2. because each cruise has had a different complement of participernts. I have made some and bought others. This year as we have 2 cabins and needed 2 FEs I have again ordered them form gradysmommy on ebay. Last years were great and I am sure that I will not be disapointed this year.
At some point I intend to make one that is made up of sepearte parts so that all I will need to do is take it apart and rearange the parts to make a new whole. I love seeing the all the creative Ideas that everyone has, I wish I had a little more of that ability. My creative juises just don't flow. Maybe I will weave some pouches and hang them together to make one.
Anyway keep posting you all are great.

I love all the FE I see on here. I thought I would share mine we used on our cruise to Alaska in August. I got a lot of my inspiration on here so I wanted to share with others. The only change I would make is our pockets are really deep because I made the back part first and didn't want to change it once I finshed it. So I just made bigger pockets with the fabric I had left over. http://

Just discovered this whole Fish Extenders thing after posting on the Disney Dream cruise meet thread for the 11/3/11 sailing. I literally have chills of excitement from how cool this all sounds! I always knew there were other fun people out there, just like me - and I think I've found them!
