Since I just made my first ever (very simple) fish extender and posted pics in the thread for my cruise date, I thought I would share the pics in this thread too No sewing, all hot glue gun, lime green fabric with winnie the pooh etc was chopped up from what I originally thought was a tablecloth, but turned out to be a children's small window curtain

I love your FE. Just bought fabric for mine, not much of a selection here, but enough for my first attempt. Can you please give me the measurements of yours. I don't want to make mine too big.

Thanks,
Marilyn

Thanks GoofyTraci, Parrotheadlois, and TiggerTails! I have to admit, the fish extenders on this thread look so professional and coordinated it was a little intimidating to share my own homegrown effort, I appreciate your comments!

Here's the FE I made for our recent cruise. The pockets are small canvas tote bags from Hobby Lobby (I cut off the handles), and I made Mickey heads with all our names and a corresponding character, then used transfers to iron them on. If I make another, I'll make the pockets bigger.

Thanks DISGIRL83!!!!

I just wanted to say thank you to DISGIRL83 for writing out the no sew instructions. I can't even sew on a button. I was going to buy a FE off of Ebay, but thought I might be able to make one once I read her instructions. I did and it turned out very sturdy. I was worried about that. SO here's a pic! And thanks again. I love the Disboards. People are so helpful

Love the nurse hat. Did you use iron ons or applique? I'm a NICU nurse, and it looks great.

That is such a good idea to use the canvas bags. Which size did you use? Do they sell a next size up? Yours looks great!
