My Homemade Fish Extender

I finally finished mine and was able to get a picture - just in time too, we set sail in less than 2 weeks!

I too had a hard time with how to personalize the FE, knowing that I may cruise with other people in the future (hoping to rebook for a girls only cruise in 2013!)... and of course, what do you do when you get home?

So I didn't put any name on it, and instead "installed" a wipe-board as a way to keep it customized and new every time!



As you can see, I themed it around my favorite Pixar movie, Up (you can see stuffed Dug sitting off to the side!). The cloud serves as a dry-erase/wipe-board, which I plan to customize each day with little sayings like "Anchors Away!" or "Off to Castaway Cay". I bought wet-erase markers, just in case someone tries to play with it in the hallway.

I don't have a sewing machine with me here, so it's all glue/bonded... but I think it turned out decent.

The UP FE is adorable! Excellent job!!! I didn't personalize ours either since I wanted it to work if I cruised with others.

Thanks!
For the characters, We actually each just selected an iron-on applique at Joanne's and she ironed them on the pockets. The letters were some iron on letters she had around the house.

We'll be on the Fantasy in June for my daughter's college graduation and she and her DBF will have a cabin of their own. I'd like to get them their own fish extender made as a surprise. There are great pictures of FEs some of you have made. My MIL sews and was wondering if there is a pattern or instructions that you've followed. Or, I've read the rave reviews about the FEs gradysmom, on ebay, has made. I'm not an ebay regular - how do I find her or contact her and does she do custom orders?

Many thanks for your help and guidance!

Looks great!!!

I have yet to finish mine, it's all in a box ready to get sewn or glued!

Can I ask you, how you put the names and pirate hats? Iron on tranfers?

Yep, I got the pirate mickey heads from milliepie's 4 shared file and I used paint to write our names on them (I also downloaded a Disney font) then I printed them out using iron on paper and ironed them on. Turned out great!
