And to think I know the person who started the madness, it's almost like having a brush with celebrity.

Hi Deb
Hi

I am not sure about the celebrity part LOL!

Yes I did start the madness! I still laugh when I see threads started about them And just more amazed at how they have taken off.

Search on ebay for wall hanging I believe. The lady that had them on ebay bought them from the same discount store that I did.

Good luck!
Debbie

OK, pardon this complete brain-dead question: the "Mail" is DIS'er communication a la' "meet you in the Walt Theatre at 9:00" or "Mike and Trish will be at the Goofy pool until 6:30" or "Does DD want to go to the midnight showing of Cars?", Is that right?

Veteran of 4 cruises and this is one thing I've yet to see. heh-heh-heh one more thing to drive DH crazy with.

Things to plan: T-shirts, magnets, DIS meets, cocktail parties, fish extenders, ... oh yeah, another cruise!
I the DIS!!!

Ok...now...what was the original purpose for the fish?? Is it just a decoration that you came up with the idea of hanging something on? Or did DCL have some intention for them?? :

You know what this means?? Soon DCL will be selling these for $40!!!

I understand what Dis'ers use the little fishy for, but why is it there in the first place??? Just decoration for the hallway??? Or am I not understanding the whole thing and the metal fishy is also something the Dis'ers put up in the hall?

No - the metal fish is put up by DCL - for your mail and messages - believe it or not - DCL sends mail. Such as "Park West Auction - tonight - win $500" or "You have an appt. at 4:00 pm with Molly in the DVC Club" or "Please join Capt. Mickey for his ...." and sadly, your statement of acct where you go have a drink to drown your sorrows at how much you spent at Shutters and the Bar - you get the idea.

I made mine. Just take a doll rod(wood stick) along piece of material and add pockets. The excitement was going back to your room and finding little presents in the pockets. I think I gave more out than I received but it is always better to give than receive.

Fish Extender


Home made using Iron on transfer paper that prints on our home ink jet printer.
You need 1/4 yard of fabric, iron interfacing, wide double fold bias tape, and a 3/8" dowel 8" long.

Pockets are 11" X 5 1/2"
Back is 32" X 8"


Cut out backing and pockets then iron on interfacing.
Sew bias tape on top of pocket
pleat once on each side and pin bottom of pocket so that it is 8" wide.
baste, then pin bias tape on bottom and sew on
Pin pockets on backing and sew bottom of pocket to backing
Pin and baste around entire outside of project.
Pin then sew bias tape around outside edge of whole fish extender
fold top over leaving room for you dowel at top and sew along the inside of bias tape down each side to secure.

I am not a professional! These are just my notes on how I made mine. Good luck!

Kudos to CQUICK for passing on the instructions to me! This is such a fun project!

How cool! Are these just for DVC members? What are some of the surprises that you put/received in a FE?

The Fish extender, original purpose was to accept all the treats/gifts dis'ers were giving each other during the Panama cruise. Nothing to do with DCL at all.

The Fish..near your door, the permanent thing is to accept mail from DCL (notes and such).

Debbie (epcotkilterfan) found those wonderful mickey hanger with pockets and thought they would be cool, since so many people were bringing gifts, we needed more room than just the fish to deliver them to. She was right...our cruise was like Christmas morning, every day..lol.
