Hello! Could someone please tell me the ideal length of the ribbon or string from which the extender hangs? Thank you!

The fastest way to do both would be to download some Disney clipart of your favourite character into a Word document and type in a Name in a fancy font and print it off on t-shirt transfer paper. You could then just iron it right on to your fabric pockets. Hey, when you only have 2 weeks left, you gotta get creative!!

If you need help, just PM me.

Happy cruisin'!!

String Length

I purchased a basic small Mickey FE off ebay (shipped from china), and I am worried the string is not long enough to easily go over the Fish and hang down a bit. What is the suggested length of string to attach to the FE dowel rod?

I dont know but could you take extra string or length of ribbon along?
Or perhaps a plastic zip tie?

Make it 20+ inches or so, and wrap it around the fish (don't have to worry about it being too long) and secure with a zip-tie.

I also ordered one that was from China. Is this like yours? If so, it is long enough, but kinda fits "snuggly" over the FE. If you want it to hang down a good bit more, I'd add extra string. But it will be fine for the purpose served.

So is the zip tie needed to keep it from being "moved"?

Yes, you never know I have not had any problems with magnets or FE going missing myself.

Very nice, I thought about doing the no sew FE but I chickened out and purchased online.
