I bought all the materials at Joannes and did a bit of sewing on the pockets but I used Liquid Stitch to attach the Mickeys and the trim,and it was wonderful. Very strong .It held thru the 15 day cruise and it had been put to the test many days.

A Different No-Sew

Here’s our take on a no-sew F/E. No one in our house is a tailor, but we do have a crafter and an engineer. This was made from three small canvas bags (from Michael’s) and a Disney themed bandana. We put grommets into the bags and hooked them together with chain from a light fixture. The bandana was then adhered with spray glue to a piece of craft foam, the images were then cut out and attached to the bags with white glue and then trimmed with white cotton twine. The nameplate was printed and attached in the same way. We took it with us on the Magic in July and it fit & worked perfectly.

thanks for all the great pictures! I had no idea what a fish extender was, now I know and can have my 12 year old design her own for our 4-25-10 cruise.

As castaway stated judt type in fish extender. There were approximately 14 fish extenders on ebay when I looked. Some were about $19 plus S/H.

LadyRob, I hope you are a believer in the saying that immitation is the fondest form of flattery because I thought your FE was so beautiful, that I just had to use it as inspiration for my own. i hope you don't mind. Here is our version...

WOW! That looks great!

It ALMOST makes me want to shelve the storebought one we have and start from scratch.

Of course I don't mind. I find loads of inspiration from the Dis and I think that's what we are all here for. You did an amazing job!!! Great work!
