i've read peoples posts and most of them agree on 9 inches - i think i saw one who said 12 inches would hang over a little -

i going this weekend to see fabrick and stuff - i'll be looking at already made canvas ones that i can decorate myself.

That is so true. Other people close to our cabin used it as a guideline to theirs.

I'm sure this has already been asked but does anyone have a pattern for the Fish Extenders? I might try to make my own! It might turn into a disaster but I think it would be fun to try!

I made my FE myself just using my eye as the measure tape. I made the FE in one evening. It was such fun. Most of the material I got from Joannes but the one with the mickeys for Stephanie I got on Ebay. I tried to keep to 8 inches wide and then for the length, I just went with what I thought would work. You can tell I did it fast cause the pockets are not quite even but since I made it myself, that really does not matter to me. It mattered that we liked it and the people in nearby staterooms liked it too. The ribbon to hang was long enough to wrap it around the actual fish twice. It was like a beacon when we could come back to our stateroom cause you could see it way down the hallway!!!







Stephanie and I spent one Sunday working on our stateroom door decorations. That was an experience. We already have ideas for this coming Decembers Mouse Fest Cruise.

Thumbs up Newbie Here!

Hi! I am a first time cruiser! I set sail on the wonder in May w/ my DH , DS' 7&8 and DD 3 , I've subscribed to the meet and greet sight already, now I'm trying to figure out door magnets and fish extenders . I'd like to try to make mine (But I'm not so crafty!) Any ideas, tips, and pointers would be much appreciated!!!
Thanks again! Kel

we went to michaels last weekend and bought some disney stickers and a large magnet sheet - just the magnet sheet to the size of the stickey on the back of the sticker (some of them are 3d some are thick paper with foam stickeys on them) and there you go - magnets.\


you can also print stuff - laminate it and put the magnet stuff on the back

as for the fish extender - there are a lot of pics out there but in a nut shell - get some fabric (2 kinds) . the final measurement will depend on you and the number of pockets and siaze of the pockets. but ours for example is 11 inches wide with 3 pockets 10x8 inches. a space at the top and the bottom folds into itself to create a pocket the papers can be rolled and placed in.

when i'm dont i'm going to post a pic and directions but that won't be until next week.

good luck

I need one with 5 pockets. I'd really like to have a pocket for each of us. I'd like to use it at home too. I could sort the mail, give kids their chore assignments, allowances, return signed homework papers....does anyone use theirs at home?
