I am actually making mine. I have googled pictures like the DCL logo, Mickey captain hat, etc. and I have made paper patterns from those images that I then transfer to fabric. Then I use Heat n Bond to layer the pieces and stick them together before zig-zagging over the edges. I have never appliquéd before, and while some results are better than others, it has been pretty easy, and I can make the items the size I need to fit the extender.

It's FISH EXTENDER, not Fish Exchange!

I thought I'd share our FE here. I have very little sewing ability, and no sewing machine. At first, I felt intimidated by the multi-pocket FEs that I saw from people with much more talent than I have. I felt very encouraged when folks posted non-traditional FEs.

It's just the two of us, so I bought a canvas bag from a craft store and used iron-on patches and fusible web to create this FE. The border at the top is made up of buttons that I sewed on in the shape of Mickey heads.

Ah well, thanks for all your help!
I was wondering why they called it "fish extender"!!!

Yes. My DW & I are going on our first cruise in Nov and we are on our FE sign up list. The thing about the FE is there are no hard and fast rules. Have fun!

I think that is part of the fun! We have a teen & a tween, and the FE will connect us to others that we might not see otherwise. It is the little things sometimes that have the biggest impact.

My fiance and I don't have any kids and we are participating in the FE on our honeymoon cruise in a few weeks! There are a handful of other adults without any kids on our cruise that are also participating! So yeah, it's pretty common!

[QUOTE=TiggerTails57;30233824]Fish Extender for my DD (I modified)
It was a door gift at MouseFest 08, from Mouse Fan Travel. So I can't take all the credit. DD wanted me to add Mickey Ears, and her name.


Hi I will be making my own FE for my second cruise this November! Where can I find the mikey rod?

Thank you!

You did an amazing job! I am attempting to make my first one!

Did you do all the embroidering yourself? Any tips for a newbie??

Wow, that one with all the glittery ship names is amazing! How did you do the letters?

Here is our duct tape FE in use from our trip last week:

Lol I totally get the name FE. I haven't been on a Disney cruise for a few years and could not figure out what a fish extender was or how it got that name. I understand the name but not sure of the "purpose". Looks really exciting. I decorate the door every cruise so this might be something new to try.
