What did you use to put the pictures on with? Mine came out but they are hardly visible.

Thanks,
Were your iron on's transfers or patches? I embroidered the pictures on my pockets with an embroidery machine. I would think ironing your pictures onto a fabric they show up on (like white) then cutting that out leaving a little border and sewing or glueing them to the pockets might help some. I'm not sure.

Thanks I'll try that. I do like the way mine came out, sewing wise.

I used iron on interfacing and did a reversabile one. Pirates on the back side.

Thanks again.

Depending upon how it comes out, I may be brave enough to post a picture.

But I guess others will see it on the ship, so I guess I will

It may not be for a few weeks though. I'm very rusty at sewing and my first attempt was not good enough to show.

What great ideas? I have been educated on the fish extenders. I will have to make one for our door.

Your finished FE is just beautiful. I love the Captain Mickey at the top. I have not forgotten to call you. I have had year-end at work and just one thing after another. I promise to be in touch soon.

It looks like you may have a new part-time job in the works.

Hey there! I think it would be absolutely be wonderful to see someone perform such a random act of kindness by dropping off a little "something" in another cruiser's FE. I know it would put a smile on my face!

It seems that there are more people who put up a FE when they are on the 7 night or longer cruises than when they cruise on the Wonder for the 3 and 4 night cruises. If you and your family are planning another cruise, I suggest you ask the people on your cruise meets thread (mom or dad might be able to help you find it if you're not sure where it is) if they want to get in on the Fish Extender fun. I know people on my next upcoming cruise are anxious to participate!

Have a good one!

RweTHEREyet; Your FE is outstanding! Can I ask what type of sewing machine you have?

Beautiful! What font did you use to embroider the letters? I have a Bernina machine and I wonder if I can find that font.

I also used a Bernina (I have a Bernina 200). I have the Designer software that digitizes any true type font. I used the waltautograph font that I found online. I'm honestly not sure where I found it though or I would post the link. Try to google "Walt or Disney Fonts".

My FE are almost complete. Once I get the rod all set I'll post the pictures.

I did two of them, one for us and one for my nephew and his wife and little one.

In case anyone else had issues with the iron ons - my solution, use fabric with very light colors. I did in fact reverse the fabric for the pockets to make the material light in color. The iron ons came out better this way.

My FE is not as nice as LuvtheEars with her embrodery, but I think I like it
