Tiffany I absolutely the most wonderful FE I have seen! I have followed you to ebay having read a thread suggesting there was a seller with some listed. I have sent you a question about them. You are a total whiz with a sewing machine - I am very envious of your ability. Thanks sooo much for sharing it with us.

Kind regards

Judith

Was not sure whether to quote your original message or now - did that with one of the disigners and got told off!. I hope you understand what I am referring to - your home made FE with yourself, husband, daughter and son embroldered on it - FABULOUS

Mickey Wreath instructions

I used my Cricut (Mickey Font cartridge) to cut mickey heads from 3 different colors of green and smaller ones from red plus a red Minnie Mouse bow. I used a circle of poster boards to randomly stick all of the green mickey's and the added the red mickey's and bow.

We didn't have room to pack the wreath home (and no where to put it) so gifted it to our room steward who seemed excited to have it.

Hope that helps!

I have a Cricut. What size did you set it to for the mickey heads, and about how many? How large was your wreath? I'm going to give it a shot.

whew! only took me a wk but i've finally read all 77 pages of this thread! it only took to pg 75 to finally find someone from our mar 20 2011 cruise, lol! hi toescat!

i am helping coordinate our FE exchg and this thread has been so valuable, i've kept lots of "notes" lol! i may have to give every night of the cruise tho b/c even at 8 mos, 2 wks and ? days away (from toescat's ticker, lol!) i'm already shopping and keep coming up w/ more ideas that i "have" to do, lol!

so some q's about my personal FE...
i have been shopping to find fabric and just want to clarify what kind is best for durability. i can get flannel or cotton in the print i want but flannel wasn't on sale so didn't get either til i knew what was best.

for those that look "typical" i'm getting that i need something to make the pockets stiffer (can't think of what it's called) is there a variety of options for levels of rigidity? if so do i want the stiffest one?

also for the main part do i put this same stuff on the back of the fabric? i saw one poster mentioned putting batting between the layers. what has worked best for those of you who are experienced FE makers?



tia!!

I use ducking for the backing because it is studier and stiffer to hold it all together but you dont want it in the pockets because it is too hard to deal with especially if you are putting pleats in it. If you will reinforce the stitching, at the sides where the pockets attach, I stitch it several times so it doesnt pull away. Your cotton fabric should be sturdy enough. I havent tested it with the actual things in it, but I just dont see how they will fall out. I cut 5 inches deep and then hem it about 1/4 of an inch and that seems to be deep enough. I also put press on light weight interfacing to keep down on the bulk of the fabric for easier stitching, in between the pockets to keep it relatively stiff so things dont flop out! LOL I dont like the fuzziness of flannel.

Just my opinion though :D

a very different FE

so we took a very different tack with our Fish Extender.

My mother crocheted the base (3 pockets) and I decorated it with foamy and glitter. We also decided to forgo the traditional mickey and go more tropical. My Dad is a big fish guy and his ideas so often get pushed to the side so when he asked for a fish instead of a mickey head, we decided to do a fish for all 3 of us.

I think it turned out quite nice.




A couple of close ups of the pockets

new fish extenders

I don't have a fancy sewing machine, just a
Singer "Simple". I love to make them just for fun and usually give them away to Disboard familys that are on our ship.

Here are a few of my newest batch....
