Olivia's Mom - It's nearly time to leave for work, so I'm being lazy. Instead of searching the thread for the answer, I'll just ask: Where did you get the rods with the Mickey-head icons as finials for your fish extenders?

Broke down yesterday and visited our local chain fabric store, but didn't see anything likely to use for the top/bottom rods. Suppose I could try the chain arts/crafts store...but being pointed in the correct direction would help with my no-sew version of the FE.

Those are dowel rods that we cut and used precut wooden shepers. They had a cut out in them already which fit our dowel rods perfect. We painted them black and used that stiff foam to cut out ears and glued them on. I got it all at Hobby Lobby.

Thanks, so much, OM! We ended up not adopting your Mickey/Minnie theme (store didn't have a lot of Disney - can you believe it?), but this gives me ideas to carry out our Napa/Sonoma theme instead.

Thank you for all the wonderful ideas. I'm just not sure if it would get much use, as we are not traveling with a big group. What do you all say?

You may be right about the FE's not being as useful when you're not going with a group. We sail 1/20 and have five cabins with all our family, so we know this will just add to the fun!

We've never had an FE on earlier cruises. Even when we cruised the DVC Members cruise we didn't do any sort of exchange - and we saw the folks we knew around the ship every day.

However, on the next cruise we are doing Secret Santa, so it's de rigeur. I'm attempting a no-sew version (well, practically no-sew); too lazy to get out the Singer and fire it up!

I'm doing the Fish Extenders as just part of door decorations, just for the fun of it.

Not a Stitch in Sight!

Okay; here's the non-sewn effort. I was determined to avoid digging out the Singer and warming it up.

Wasn't happy with the Disney fabric my local store carried, so switched to another favorite theme: Napa/Sonoma. The body of the FE is double-sided stiff fusible interfacing wrapped in the grapevine fabric. Pockets were made from the same fabric, reinforced with green grosgrain ribbon applied with an iron-on adhesive. Edges were turned, fused, and then fused to the body, moving the top of each pocket towards the center a bit to create a pouch. We then attached the purple grosgrain ribbon hanger to the body with jeans buttons and reinforced each pocket with rivets at the corners.



Thanks to everyone who gave advice and pointed me in the right direction (especially Olivia'sMom & Betty Dau)!

Here's a few pictures of the loot I brought home from the Oct 20th Western.
Thanks Konked Kruisers for all the great gifts!!!

I couldn't picture all of them because some of the items I pictured had names and home addresses on them, but you get the idea.

We had 19 families playing DIStag for the week. We all had great fun!!

(Oh yeah, Plankton was not included as a gift in our game, rather he was our Konked Kruiser Mascot.

You've all inspired me to make one as well. I'll be helped by my friend who's a fantastic sewer. MouseFest is only a few weeks away! Wahoo!

Here is my fish extender. I picked the materials and my neighbor made it for me. I was supposed to have a blue backround but I didn't have enough fabric so she used the yellow. I borrowed one of your design pattern.

I think it came out great. Just have to add my rod. We leave this Sat.
