The pockets were 6 inches deep X 8 inches wide. I also added quilt batting between the bigger piece to add some strength to that piece.

Bevtoy gave this link to help make it on page four of this thread: http://www.sewing.org/enthusiast/htm...kerpocket.html

Thanks Bevtoy!

Fish Extender from my Back 2 Back cruises from September 8 to the 22nd.

It was made from a rolling bag with broken wheels. Cut the bag apart, left the zipper at the top and handles on. Cut the handle open at the top and cut the other handle off the other side of the bag. Sewed the handle pieces together. Cut pockets out of the sides of the bags and sewed Mickey heads onto them. Then sewed the pockets to the bag

I'm proof you don't need a pattern. I don't sew at all, so did all by hand. I just bought a little more than a yard of fabric. I cut out a size from that 8 " by 36"-38". I ironed on some backing to stiffen the fabric.
I just "eyeballed" how big the pockets should be, and I put four on my FE's (I made two FE's-one for us, a family of two, and another for a family of four). I hand sewed the pockets on, but otherwise, everything was iron-on (including the seams.)
I ironed on sticky letters for names, numbers, and stick-on fishy things I had bought.
I'll be glad to send you a picture if you PM me. These are for our Jan. 20 voyage.

Talking Goodies in our FE...

A zip lock bag with bandaids, rubber bands, paper clips, zip ties, safty pins etc. It was a little bag with the little things you might not know you would need. (it actually came in handy. )
We have also been given, a little note pad, pens, pencils, candy with stickers or home made wrappers with cruise motto wrapped around the outside and magnets. A special homemade necklace for one of the special nights like pirate or tropical. The thing I didnt do that I will for the next cruise was to print stickers with our disboard name to attach to the gift. Lots of people use the return address stickers for this. I thought it was a cute idea. I would suggest you check out the dollar store for disney items such as stickers that people could use when they scrapbook. Some of the gifts came with a little note which made it personal.
The gifts overall went from expensive to home made but all were equally great to recieve and made us wish we had brought more to give away. I think that was my favorite part. Dropping off the home made magents and then seeing them on peoples doors.
On our cruise a wonderful gentleman organized lanyards and made inserts for everyone. It was just awsome to see so many dis'ers. If it;s done on our next cruise. I want to make pins for our lanyards.

Just have fun with it!

Thank you! I used a Bernina embroidery machine and embroidered the designs directly on my pockets before I put the FE together.

bumping...I had a bit of a problem finding this thread. Search doesn't seem to be working too well tonight!

Everyone who made one...they all look great. Hopefully mine will look 1/2 as good!
