A few people have mentioned finding these at a bargain store. What store have you seen the fish entenders in? I was thinking of .99 store, Dollar Tree, or any other store where they are cheap.
I would rather have one to start with and then add to it to make it cute!

Thanks!

In the first five-ten pages of this thread there are some great ideas of what to put in other people's fish extenders. Also, there are a couple of patterns posted too.

The only way I know of to get involved in one is to find a thread on the DCL section for cruise meets and get a group together there that wants to participate in the Fish Extender exchanges. People do them mostly on the longer cruises, but there are a few that do them on the shorter cruises as well. We are only doing a 3 day and I think we'll have a few families participating.

Hi Deborah

I think what everyone is using to make their hanger, is a length of dowling (wood). You would be able to buy it at a DIY store like Homebase or B&Q. Look where they sell wooden trims like dado rails and picture rails.

If you are really stuck, maybe you could use a length of bamboo cane like you get from the garden centre. I'm sure the pound shops will have them in soon.

I've just found this thread and my mind is racing with ideas! I need to find some good fabrics first.

Let me know how you get on!

Lesley

I copied down two different sets of instructions for "fishies" that I can email anyone if you PM your email address to me.

This is my first. Great thing about 1st tries: now I know what I did wrong (well, sort of ) It's hard to see the black bias tape around the whole thing but it really gave it a finished look. I freaked when the fabric came out of the washer frayed - then I decided to just use the edge for the top of the pockets. Now if I could just figure out how to make those dynamite mickey heads on the dowel...

I'm pretty sure somewhere in this thread someone tells you how to make them. I think they used wooden balls that they inserted flat wooden disks into for the ears and then added them to the end of the dowel.

Oh man, that really bites! I'm so sorry that happened. Don't let it ruin all the GOOD memories of the cruise too. It's hard to explain to kids though, I understand.

We are planning on doing the FE also on our cruise in Nov. and this is exactly what I'm afraid of will happen to us!! I'm so sorry this happened to you. On our very 1st cruise ever, our door signs were stolen off of our cabin door

I've never been on the cruise before, however I'm going on the Magic in September. Is there a way to prevent the fish extender from getting stolen? Maybe something that I could bring from home to secure it?

I think some folks have brought a heavy duty plastic zip tie to secure their fish extender.
Just don't forget to pack a pair of scissors to cut it off on the last night.


Of course if someone is really determined to be malicious, they will likely find a way; but it's worth a shot to make it more difficult for them.

So sorry about your missing items DisneyBride '03
(I believe I read on another thread that they took all your magnets too?)

Very frustrating that some folks have no respect for others' property.

I'm so sorry that someone stole your FE On our last cruise we used a ziptie and no one bothered it. Where was your room? I'm wondering if being in a busy corridor makes a difference. We were in a Cat 12 on deck 2 so not too many people were around there. We leave 2/16 on the Magic and are planning FE and door magnets but we are on deck 6 in a busy area. Maybe I'll take them in over night.
