These all look terrific! My DH and I are taking the Wonder 4 night in December on the Mousefest cruise and I plan on sewing an FE before then! We're going to WDW in a few weeks so I'll pick up some patches and antenae toppers there. BTW, on one of the other DIS board threads, someone mentioned the site disneyfabrics.com/ I mention it because there seems to be alot there if you are looking for specific themed fabric.

btw...I just read every, single one of the posts on this thread....hows that for having extra time, lol?

What a great thread! This tradition hadn't started yet when my DW and last sailed with DCL (June 2000). I'm really hoping my cruisemates coming up on the July 2009 cruise do this. My DW already said she'd be happy to make one, so when she does I'll be sure to post a pic.

The creativity here is astonishing, it relaly gave her some great ideas as we read the thread together.

Fish Extender for my DD (I modified)
It was a door gift at MouseFest 08, from Mouse Fan Travel. So I can't take all the credit. DD wanted me to add Mickey Ears, and her name.

This is ours. Leaving 2/12 to Florida. Sailing 2/19.


About 90% of is done with fabric glue and fabric bonding tape. I do own a sewing machine so I sewed on the cording around the edge and zipped across the bottom of the pockets. I really could have done this whole thing without any sewing.

So, you don't need sewing skills to make a fish extender.

When in July are you going? We are sailing 7/25-8/1 and I am hoping someone will be interested in this also.

My DW and I are on the 7/4-7/11 trip. If you are interested in an exchange post on your Meet thread and see what other parties have started a group, or like I will probably do, start one of your own

Have a great trip!

Hi,
How did you add the names without sewing at all? Super cute!

No-Sew FE

After several requests I have finally gotten around to writing the directions to how I did it. What I did is very similar to the directions on earlier posts so those provided great guidance.

Supplies:

2 yards of fabric (two colors – one yard each)
Double fold bias tape
Dowell Rod
Iron-On Patches
1 Package of Iron-On Interfacing
1 Package of Heat-n-Bond No Sew Ultra Hold 7/8 in. hem
1 Package of Heat-n-Bond No Sew 1 Yard
Various Colors of Ribbon

1. Cut fabric to be used as the body of the FE to be 8 in. wide by 58 in. in length. When folded the FE will be 29 in. in length.
2. Cut fabric for the three pockets, cut each pocket 11 in. wide by 12 in. in length. When folded each pocked will be 6 in. in length.
3. On the inside of the FE body piece and each pocket iron on the interfacing. Once cooled completely I ironed on the sheet of Heat-n-Bond cut 8 in. by 29 in. to the inside of the body of the FE.
4. On each of the 3 folded pockets I made pleats so that the pockets were 2 in.-pleat-4 in.-pleat 2 in. To secure the pleats I used the Heat-n-Bond Ultrahold hem. This was done on the cut side so that the top edge would be folded and clean.
5. Next I used the heat-n-bond hem to add 8 in. strips of the double fold bias tape to the bottom of each pocket.
6. Next I lined up the pockets on the body of the FE starting 8 in. from the top and then about 1 in. apart. I market the spots with a pencil and secured the bottom and sides of the pockets using the heat-n-bond hem.
7. Once all cooled. I used the double fold bias tape for the perimeter of the body of the FE which again was secured using the iron on hem.
8. Once cooled I ironed on the patches to each of the pockets.
9. I then folded down the top of the FE about 2 inches and secured to the back of the FE by the iron-on hem creating a little opening to insert the dowel rod.
10. Using the multicolored ribbon I made it long enough so that the FE would hang approximately 7-8 in. from a hanger.
11. For our names I bough iron-on computer paper and printed the names on the computer. Then I cut and surrounded the paper with double fold bias tape attached using the iron-on hem. Finally I ironed on the name piece.

I think that’s all. I’ve never tried to write directions for anything like this before. Everything I used I bought from either Wal-Mart, Michaels, or Joann’s Fabrics.

Here's the picture again of the final result.

my no sew FE tote bags

I couldn't find any fabric that I liked and I ran out of time to sew a FE, so I can up with these instead.
