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!

The bias tape is the light blue "border" around the material and pockets.

Not sure which antenna toppers everyone is using but this link will take you to an online store that has them.

Start at the beginning of this thread. You'll see many pictures of them and get ideas for what people put in them.

OK, I am all set to use a cute, strong sided gift type box for my FE. It is about 4"x4"x4", has flat sides so I think it will hang nicely against the wall & has a ribbon handle and I figured I would re-string it with a longer piece of ribbon to clear the room number. The box is open on the top, so it's kind of like a basket, really.

Is this going to work out OK, or should I make something more like what I've seen on the link so far? Those are beee-youtiful, but I don't have time to mess with it, and another e-bay pruchase will send DH over the edge.

Just need some advice before I try to personalize the box thing. If it's a lost cause I need to know now.

Thanks so much!

What you have described will be fine. I have seen pretty decorated gift bags hanging from the fish on cruises as well. That would be easy enough to pack just in case there is an issue.

I certainly think your version will be great. I plan on using some type of gift bag, pouch-type FE because I don't have time to make a multi-pocket one and I really don't know when I will use it again.
Also, by using a decorated gift bag, it is easy to pack and disposable (if you know what I mean)....

You could get some foam letter stickers and some character stickers from the scrapbooking area of your local craft store.
OR
Print something out from your computer.
