Please take a moment to review the DIS Board Guidelines regarding for sale posts.

Quote:
1. FOR SALE For sale ads are strictly prohibited on any of the DISboards. Anyone posting such ads will have their post deleted. This same policy applies to links to your ebay/auction listings . "For sale" posts includes requests for donations (see below). In addition, "Vote for me" posts are not permitted on the DIS. This includes requests for support in an online contest, sweepstakes, lottery or other event designed to yield personal gain.
While sharing your ideas for FEs and patterns and different ways of making them yourselves is wonderful and what this thread is all about, posting asking someone to make one for you, posting information concerning DISers who happen to sell them or even posting that you are going to avoid posting this information on the board by PMing or emailing someone the information violates the guidelines. Any and all posts of this nature will be deleted and may receive infractions. This guideline applies for the entire board so if you ever see this being done, simply report the post be clicking on the triangle in the bottom left corner of the post block and let us know since we cannot read every single post on the boards ourselves.

Thank you.

All of these FEs are great. Mine was about a foot wide, which made it very easy to find our room .

Anyway, I am doing a new one for the next cruise (don't think Brenda and Eric will work with Brenda, Azaria and Jennifer). We are doing a Winnie the Pooh theme. I have the fabric and am keeping an eye out for the characters (they were out at Joanne's when I was there last).

But what I want is the Disney letters for our names. Where or how do you find them? That will be our finishing touch.

TIA.

On our January cruise our FE got splashed with what was probably bleach. I'm thinking from the cleaning carts. Has any one else had their FE damaged? Ours now has pea sized specks of no color.

I wanted to say that I have personally and distinctly benefitted from Speedfigure's creativity and that I am very grateful! Can't wait to see what else she comes up with.

BTW - can you tell us about the Dream Job?

To get Disney lettering:


find a free font download like
http://simplythebest.net/fonts/fonts...ey_script.html

Download the font, then copy it into Fonts folder (s/b in the C:windows)

Then the font will appear in word like any other font

When I made the word MICKEY on a shirt for DS I used the Mickey font - printed it out in the size I wanted (on paper) and cut those out.
I ironed a fusible web to the back of the fabric I wanted to use. Taped the paper letters to the fabric and then cut them out. Voilà. I just ironed them onto the shirt then.

I think some people may have the Cricut and are able to use it for fabric maybe too?

Thanks, SUZCRUISE and TravelinGal. The lettering was the only thing holding me back.

One more fish extender question! Talk to me about size, meaning length.

We are a family of 6 with 4 kiddos. I do not mnd sharing a pocket with my DH but would like my children to each have their own pocket.

Approx. how big should the pocket be? How deep? I am thinking I want my entire FE to not exceed 8inch wide to fit on that narrow wall.

However, I do not want the thing to "extend" all the way to the floor!

How to included a top banner for our family name and dowel rod (can be smaller then any pocket I'm thinking?)

Would a 5 inch pocket be to short? The pocket would come out to about 7-7.5 inches wide but only about 4.5 inches deep?

I just can't get the scale by looking at the pics on here?

Even at those dimensions, my entire FE would still be around a yard (30 plus inches) long.

What is to long? What pocket is big enough/not big enough?

Any ieas or measurements from your own?
