Nov 3rd cruise

What was your favorite shipboard thing you did on the Fantasy cruise and do you plan to do it again?

fe gifts

I understand that great fe ideas are trinkets from your hometown and/or country and since we are coming from Steeler Country I plan to bring some fun black and gold gear!

Fe

I just noticed I needed to use my DVC points so I just booked a cruise to Alaska on Sept 3rd. I just found out about this and figured out how to make one really easy, but didn't know how to find out who else will be on the cruise also. Is there a place to go to plan and see who else might have a FE on a certain cruise?


For making it, I was just going to take 4 pieces of fabric, 1 shorter than the next, all 10" wide and the longest 15" long. Stack the longest on the bottom and then the shortest on top of that, lining up at the bottom. Next the second and third shortest. Then I staple them with industrial stapler for large stacks of paper. I have one at work. You can sew it if you want, I just found this easier. Once all bound, just turn it right side out. The bottom one will the the back and the second/shortest one will be the front. Iron it flat and add iron on decals.
If you have stiffer fabric for the back one it will make it hang straighter.
I added a nice nylon rope through one of the holes between the staples, ran it up to a large dowel that I cut a couple notches in, and it was done.

Hope this helps and thanks for any info.

Go into the Disney Cruise Line Meets section of the forum, find your cruise and look through the posts. There's probably someone in charge of the FE already.

I chose not to personalize it now since my cast of characters will be changing cruise to cruise. When I do, I'll probably print out and laminate the CM cruise ID tags that the designers on the DISign board personalize for people and then attach a safety pin to the back and attach to a pocket.



This is very cute! Great job and a good idea to be able to change the names. We are considering not personalizing for that very reason.

I have made 4 now for myself and friends for our upcoming cruise.

You can just use as a guide line and make your own decals or decorations for it. I found some disney themed material in a remnant bin once so got a great buy on it. Mine only cost me about $12 to make, I have a photo of it but don't know how to post it.

Supplies:

2 yards of fabric, two colors Ė one yard each. (I used 1 yard for the back and a quilting square for each pocket.)

Double fold bias tape- 2 packs (1 for the top of the pockets and 1 for the outside of the FE)

Dowell Rod

Iron-On Patches or transfer sheets (I printed my own images on transfer paper)

1 Package of Iron-On Interfacing

1 Package of Heat-n-Bond No Sew Ultra Hold 7/8 in. hem

1 Package of Heat-n-Bond No Sew 1 Yard

Various Colors of Ribbon

1. Cut fabric to be used as the body of the FE to be 20 in. wide by 36 in. in length. When folded the FE will be 10 in wide and 36 in. in length.
2. Cut fabric for the pockets, cut each pocket 18 in. wide by 12 in. in length. When folded each pocked will be 6 in. in length.
3. On the inside of the FE body piece and each pocket iron on the interfacing. Once cooled completely I ironed on the sheet of Heat-n-Bond cut 8 in. by 29 in. to the inside of the body of the FE.
4. On each of the folded pockets I made pleats so that the pockets were 2 in.-pleat-4 in.-pleat 2 in. To secure the pleats I used the Heat-n-Bond Ultrahold hem. This was done on the un-cut side so that the bottom edge would be folded and clean.
5. Next I used the heat-n-bond hem to add 18 in. strips of the double fold bias tape to the top of each pocket.
6. Next I lined up the pockets on the body of the FE starting 8 in. from the top and then about 1 in. apart. I market the spots with a pencil and secured the bottom and sides of the pockets using the heat-n-bond hem.
7. Once all cooled. I used the double fold bias tape for the perimeter of the body of the FE which again was secured using the iron on hem.
8. Once cooled I ironed on the patches to each of the pockets.
9. I then folded down the top of the FE about 2 inches and secured to the back of the FE by the iron-on hem creating a little opening to insert the dowel rod.
10. Using the multicolored ribbon I made it long enough so that the FE would hang approximately 7-8 in. from a hanger.
11. For our names I bough iron-on computer paper and printed the names on the computer. Then I cut and surrounded the paper with double fold bias tape attached using the iron-on hem. Finally I ironed on the name piece.

I think thatís all. Iíve never tried to write directions for anything like this before. Everything I used I bought from either Wal-Mart, Michaels, or Joannís Fabrics.

thanks for all the great photos! while I do have an embroidery machine, it's a much older style and I don't have the disney fonts.

I may do Iron on to get the font, but add in some other elements like patches, etc.

Still trying to think of ideas, but keep the great photos coming. Remember to take them while on your cruise and post back here!
