Bumping! I'm in need of an FE and I'm tempted to make one.... Is there a pattern online?

What kinds of gifts are usually left? How often do you leave them?

We ending up buying one from a DISser on Ebay. try googling Fish Extender or do a search for one on ebay and you will find some.

This thread will provide those answers -- I think directions to make one are on the first page (in any case, it's early in the thread) and people have also discussed what to put in them as well. The frequency depends on you and your group you have a FW swap with.

I'd browse the thread as you have time. I know it's long - just remember what page you left off at and pick up when you have time.

ETA - the post with measurements is on page 2 #27

There was a link to a site that had a pattern but the page has been moved. I searched the site and couldn't find it. Someone else in the first few pages also posted some other directions as well.

What a great thread and great FEs! I'm going to get started on mine soon.

How to get FE goodies on board

I have some candies for FE goodie bags. I want to make the goodie bags up before hand so I don't have to do it on the cruise. But I was reading on Disney's site that Snacks have to be closed bags.

Has anyone done this? Can you put it in the checked luggage or should it be carry on?

depending on how many goodie bags you need to do, you can put them in a carry-on (just remember to keep it out of the sun if there are any "meltables" inside). I made mine up and had them shipped in a box to the hotel we stayed in for a few days before hand. I did carry on the small box so I didn't have to overstuff the carryons - needed that room for "adult beverages"

How long do you make the tie for hanging? I want to make sure I have it long enough so our stateroom number will be seen.

Thanks!

I have a question. I have read multiple times that the fish extender should be no more than 8" wide, or else it will hang out into the hall. Does the 8" refer to the fabric portion of the fish extender or the rod by which it is hung from?

Here is my FE 8 inches wide, and a whopping 13 inches with the golden Mickey's.
It was fine!

Make it plenty longer than you think you will need, as you can wrap it around the fish and secure with a zip tie.
I think mine was over 20 inches total. (Too short and it will hide the stateroom number).
