Elderfam, those are just gorgeous. I really admire people that can sew, not one of my talents.

Those are great! And how nice to share them with others on the ship!

After driving myself crazy, I saw this picture! I will be doing this same type of FE for our cruise. I'll just add more to personalize it!

Thanks for this great idea!!

You can also ask her about personalized embroiled pillow cases to bring for the characters to autograph, it's a great souvenir.

Fish Extender

Ah well, thanks for all your help!


I just bought mine on ebay...we leave in 3 weeks, and the person making it assured me she would have it to me by then. I couldn't believe when I searched fish extender on ebay things actually came up. I ordered mine from gradysmommy. A fun tote bag could work too. This is my 11th DCL and our first time doing the "FE exchange". So excited.

Just beautiful! My mom just passed away, and I never learned how to sew from her. She made all of my formals for high school, dresses and fancy pillowcases for my daughter. Now I must take a class to learn how to sew as she gifted me her sewing machines...a regular machine, and an embroidery one. Time for me to find a pattern and try to make fun things like fish extenders to share with other DIS members on a future cruise (not enough time for me to do anything before our Aug 3, 2010 one.

Thanks for sharing the ones you have made...I am sure anyone that gets one is very appreciative!

What a great job. Very nice!

Disney Fabric

I get the bulk of my Disney fabric at Walmart. I would also check e-bay and Joann fabrics.
Hope this helps!
