Very creative idea

found instruction for the FE but still have a question....

I found the instructions for making a FE. I see I am supposed to buy 1/4 yard of material. Then I attach iron-on fuseable webbing to the back. When I finish the FE, after sewing the pockets on etc, the back of the FE is the iron-on material correct? I don't see any instructions that you are supposed to put a backing on the FE. Initially I was thinking I ironed on the web and then put right sides together and sewed the sided and bottom and then turned in right side out. I looks like all the instructions skip this step. I know I could do it this way but if I can save a step may do so. My main question is if you turned your FE around would it be the web you see?

Yes, if you did add the fusible webbing, if you turned it around, you would see it. If you use material that is stiff enough (I used some heavy denim as my backing) then you could skip the fusible webbing step.....however, it does help keep the FE "stiff and straight" because if you use something thinner for the backing, the FE would "sag" without the webbing...

Hope that makes sense and answers your questions...

Thank you. I decided to add the webbing but then sewed two same size pieces together and sewed right sided together and then turned it right side out. I am almost done with it but don't have an embroidery machine so I don't know what I am going to put on the pockets. I am looking for Mickey's to iron on the pockets but I can do that after it is done. Will try to post a photo when done.

I found them here on these boards but don't remember where. I will try to post later today after school..... I know I did a search but it did come up with lots of stuff and I had to weed through them.

These are the directions I used for a No-sew FE. It was pretty simple and I found all the items I didn't have at WalMart. I already had material (which our Walmart also sells) and some felt that I used to make Mickey heads. I have to finish up a few things with it and then I'll post a picture.

The FEs look bigger in the pictures. I was surprised at how small the pockets actually are. I'm a little worried about that.

Here is the extender I made for our trip. It is just a hanging organizer I found at Walmart that had pockets on the front. I used the iron on backing with fabric that I liked for the Mickey head & then bought the .98 bandanas from Hobby Lobby & cut them into strips for the tie-ons. The rhinestones were originally made for customizing flip flop straps, I just cut them to fit & the feathers were hair clips I found. Since both my daughter & I have names that start with "M", I just bought two "M" pins & stuck them on. Hope this helps!

Here is a link to my album where you can see a couple of pis of my FE...

WOW! These are really cute. I love them all. Are these ones that you have used on previous cruises or did you use all of them on the same cruise for different rooms? You did a great job

Thanks for taking photos of everyone's FEs...I will do that and post when I return. I think it's great for those of us who have never seen nor made an FE to get ideas!
Thanks also to everyone who has posted directions so I have a place to start. Well, after I visited Wal-Mart for supplies! My local Joann's didn't have any Disney ribbon and not really a good selection of Disney fabric!

I printed iron-on transfers of mickey heads and personalized them in PowerPoint before printing them. Just iron them onto your pockets and there's no need to embroider.
