That's the exact same fabric that I'm going to use!! It looks really great!! I only have red coordinating fabric but really like the yellow with yours! I love it!!

Do you mind sharing specifics on how you made it? I get the general idea, but how did you do your names? and what are the Mickey heads made of at the end of your dowel?

Thanks so much and I hope you enjoy your cruise.

Hi everyone,

So a newbie here and I am sorry to say that I only got half way through this discussion and I need some info. My DIS group would like to exchange goodies on our cruise in June but we are ALL new to the Fish Extender thing. I just need some guidence to share with my group. So the first question is do we email each other with our room and Deck numbers so we can locate each other? Does it matter what we give as a gift? and Do we give something everyday of the cruise? Any help would be GREAT!!!

We have one person who volunteers to keep track of all names and stateroom numbers who brings copies and we have a DIS meet where they are passed around, often the 1st morning after boarding.

we're emailing/PMing the lists of staterooms participating prior to the cruise, so people know before the cruise where they're going
as for the gifts, you can choose what to give, when to give, how often to give, you could decide this as a group, or you can choose what/where/when yourself

Thank you! I had only planned to use yellow with mine. I normally don't work with fabric but do paper and cardstock a lot. I always like to pull out a color that there is not much of. Anyway, I realized that I would need more fabric and remembered I had a bunch of red that I had left from a project someone was working on for me. Turned out to be a perfect match.

I used my Cricut for our names and text. I have Mickey Font so of course I had to use that! I used cardstock - two layers. Then I used fabric glue to attach to the FE.

The Mickey heads on the end of the dowel rod were made with wooden balls and wooden discs. My dad and DH helped me with that. They used a grinder to cut slits in the ball and then we used wood glue to secure the discs in the slits. I can't take credit for the idea though. I saw it somewhere on here

And thanks again. I love the Disboards. People are so helpful

This looks great! And you are definately welcome on the instructions as I put them together using bits and pieces of what I learned on here too! I've been so wrapped up in our cruise meet thread this is the first time I've been on the FE thread in a long time and they all look so great!!!! I love the porthole design you used.

I'm sure your FE is just fine. You are leaving in a couple of days and we arent. So go have fun and dont worry about it.
