Would hate to see any other Diser's "lose" their fish extenders like I did...please try some kind of recommendation that secures it a bit better. It is truly a bummer to know your personalized item, was stolen by someone on your cruise! Not a fun feeling to walk out of your stateroom and realize someone came by and stole all your personalized door magnets and fish extender....for what?!

Sorry the picture is so big. I'm not sure how to make it smaller.

Can I ask you where you found the adorable beach themed appliques?

IIRC, she said she embroidered them herself on her machine.

DisneyCruiser2008, I believe those are embroidered directly onto the pockets using an embroidery sewing machine, not appliques. Makes me wish for a new sewing machine, because they're amazing.


I've been following this thread to keep up with everyone's fun ideas.

I'm getting antsy to make ours -- maybe a few trial runs before our cruise?

Aren't they amazing? I wish I had that kind of talent. I'm lucky if I can hem a pair a pants or sew on a missing button! But I keep telling myself I have other talents.......

I thought I had wrote the dimentions down but cant seem to find them now. Thinking of giving it a try this weekend. I have the material just not sure how big it should be. I thought I remember no wider then 9in, but aprox how long do majority of you make it. How big per pocket?

THanks!

Nothing fancy, but here is my no sew FE. I see it is not as long as most. I still need to add ribbon or cord at the top to hang it by.

Hello! Here is how I made my Mickey Head hanger:



For the hanger I used a dowel rod that I cut the right length. I added 1 inch dowel end balls (I bought them at a craft store) that I cut slits into and put flat wood circles to make Mickey heads. Be sure your Dowel fits into the hole in the dowel end. This was a fun project, but be careful to secure your dowel ball when you are cutting them. I used my DH's vice and some of the non-slip cabinet liner to hold the ball. Then I used wood glue to secure the dowel balls and ribbon to hang the FE with.

I have read that foam circles can also be used to make the ears.

I really did try to resize this picture smaller? Sorry it is so big.

I love what you did on your pockets! The name tags are fantastic!

i was thinking of just making an indentation in the MM balls you can put on antenna (so many cute ones) & glueing them on ; anyone else try it yet?

I would love to try this, but don't know where to get these other than WDW. Do they sell them at the Disney Store in the mall? How much are they?
