Thanks. I'll start making mine then.

I saw one person had made one with fabric glue instead of stitching. I can hand-stitch, but not really machine stitch. Has anyone else made one without a sewing machine?

Hi,

I bought an over the door organizer and then my friend ironed on some Disney patches.....I'm not the creative type, but this worked really well cause it had deep, sturdy pockets!!

OMG very cute idea!!!! U are creative! I am having Tiffany make one for my cruise only cause we go every 18 mos so I know it will get its use. But boy ur idea is very nice. Actually I like it for in the stateroom for the kids to put their sunglasses,goggles,castaway club lanyards, etc. That would be nice. Where did you find one that was little like that??? All the ones I have seen are wide like almost as much as the door. Thank you

Hi Michelle,

I found it at Target and thank you for the compliment! I will pass it along to my friend who ironed the patches on...... I'm totally lacking in the creativity department, though I like to think not!

I also bought and over the door shoe holder (white one at walmart) for the cruise and it was the best thing I brought with us (even my husband said the same thing and he doesn't pay much attention to that stuff)......our bathrooms were kept neat and uncrowded, as was the room! All your tolietries and little items just go right in the pockets and are there when you need them......not sure if I have a pic of it.....let me take a look! Nope, no pics, but I still highly recommend bringing one if you are cruising!

I have seen them made all different ways-including with fabric glue. I think it can be done but you should really glue the heck out of the pockets so they will hold stuff without pulling away.

Just wanted to reiterate:

Everyone, be SURE to use the zip ties to secure your FE.

We had an attempted fish-napping! We came out one morning to find our FE had been ripped from the fish, but was saved by the zip tie. The FE was dangling from the tie, completely removed from the fish.

Save the FE's! Buy a zip tie!!!!

BTW, here is a pic of ours. It was a collaboration from two of my Dis friends. You may have seen other examples of their work around...

Dumb question...don't they confiscate scissors or things like that? How would one get the zip tie off when the cruise is over?

Nope. I brought 4 pairs of scissors and one set of nail clippers.

(I didn't mean to bring 4 pairs, it was a packing error! But there was always a pair sitting around when I needed it!! )

We don't fly in, so it may be an issue on the airlines. I think they are OK if they are in your checked bags, though. Hope that helps!

Yup - scissors are fine in checked luggage. Just not carryons. You can take nail clippers in carryons though.

Scissor are fine in the carry on. I accidentally put my small Xacto knife that looks like a pen into my carryon, but they never took it. I was surprised. Maybe because it was a very small blade.

Interesting....I left work from working in my classroom a couple of summers ago and had left my wallpaper knife on the floor in the hall. Being too lazy to reopen my classroom, I just picked it up and stuck it in my purse. I totally forgot that I had done that and didn't take it out. I went through the airport to and from WDW and no one saw it or questioned it! I didn't realize it until I got home after vacation! SCARY!

Yes.

Funny story though, I had only brought one tie with me, but we ended up having to move our FE b/c our room got moved. But I got another zip tie as a FE gift so I then had another one to re-secure it when I moved it from one room to the other.

One other little tip...don't pull the tie too tight against the fish, it will make it *really* hard to get it cut off. We left ours with about 1" clearance and it worked just fine. Saved our FE from walking away!!!

Oh and one more tip, if you make your own FE, make sure to use hot glue or superglue to secure the sring you hand it with to the bar the FE hangs from, if the string is just tied to the bar someone could easily untie it.
