Cute fish extender!

Okay, quick question for you all! Approx., how much have you spent in making your fish extender? I ask because I was planning on purchasing one off of ebay for $35 and DH thinks I can make one cheaper than that, but I disagree.

Thoughs? We have time before our cruise- the end of September. Thanks!

Mine cost about $25.00 to make but you can make one for cheaper than that depending on what materials you use. I was going to buy one but decided I wanted one that had input from my kids and was unique to our family!

: that depends on what you want to use to decorate it. You can buy material on sale at Wal Mart (least expensive I've seen) I paid about $10-$20 - including fabric, interfacing, binding, etc. ~ the basic necessities for FE. BUT, you may be able to make it cheaper than that if using plain material, (rather than licensed) This is not including decorations, which you can make yourself(as shown in previous photos) or iron on patches. It's how much $$ you want to put into it

(Hint: You can save $$ if you sew rather than iron on binding and pockets)
If I would make another FE I would use plain material and have more choices of designs on pockets etc.

I bought a cheap one off ebay that is just a mickey hanging pocket organizer but the cord used to hang it is not very long so I think I'll need to adjust that. Can someone with experience making and using one let us know how long to make the ribbon so it hangs from the Fish just right? I cruise in 24 days!!!!

these are all so neat. I'm going to go back through these posts and try to find some more generic Disney designs. I don't think my teenage boys will appreciate the TinkerBell or Pooh designs as much as their mom and sister!

Even though I don't have anyone yet to exchange with, I did just buy my first FE items yesterday...Pirates of the Caribbean band-aids on clearance!

You don't have to go crazy trying to make or buy a multi-pocket FE. We used gift bags and decorated them with image I found on-line. I used by mickeyhead punch for some added decorations....You could fine some PoC images and use them...for a 'male' touch.

I am going to "try" to make one, but was just thinking- I could use some of "Natalie's T-Shirt Designs" that I have to Iron onto what I make. That way I wouldn't have to worry about stitching names!

How/where to I get a Mickey head punch? How do you cut out the black silhouettes so perfectly?

Okay, I am getting dizzy trying to read/look through all of these FE threads for my answer!

so, I'm asking again (something is telling me I know this answer but can't quite grab it with my fried brain. . .)

I need to know the distance between the bottom of the metal fish and the floor? Make sense?

here's the deal. I want to make ONE FE, not two. We actually have two cabins but would like to keep it to one FE for 6 people?

DH and I will share a pocket but wanted each kiddo to have their own pocket?

Don't want this thing to touch the floor! or be so huge it looks tacky or any number of other concerns!

Saw one posted that was indeed 5 pockets but can not tell the length of it either.

HELP?!!??

I can't give you an exact distance from FE hook to the floor as I never measured it, BUT, my DH is 6 Feet tall and it was approximately at his head level. I'm 5' 2" and I had to reach up to get notes off of it, So I'd say guessing 6 feet from the floor would be a close to accurate distance.
Hope that helps you out.
