Just a heads up for the sewers out there (an ones like me who have not used a sewing maching for 18 years) that Joanne's is having the Disney prints fabric on sale at 30% off right now and also all the Disney scrapbooking items are on sale at 30% off. There is also an additional 10% coupon for this weekend on their Labor Day flyer.

I am trying to make two of these for our trip. I will post pictures if they turned out. So far, I have been working on remembering on how to thread the machine and wind a bobbin! The back is done and I am doing the pockets currently.

It's because you linked to a kodakgallery image... if you've been there once, it will show because it's in your computer's cache memory, if not, it won't show - it's just a quirk...

If someone wants to see it, copy and past the following into your browser putting the normal http:// in front of it:
images.kodakgallery.com/photos3866/5/15/64/69/9/2/209696415505_0_ALB.jpg


p.s. it looks fabulous!! Good job!

Thank you for your help and compliment! I had a lot of fun making it once I figured out how to use the sewing machine again!

What is the best photo site that works to copy pics over here on the DIS? I went to photobucket, but my pics have too many pixels for what they say I can upload without paying for it. I have uploaded on shutterfly. Think that will work? I am making another one tomorrow and want to share it when I am done.

I use photobucket... but if you want to reduce the size (as in the number of pixels or the size of the file) you can use Google to search for something called a "jpg optimizer" - there are online versions or free download versions...

HTH!!

Just letting you know that I merged the thread about where to find fabric for the fish extenders with this one.

Thank you!! I winged it from this thread, thanks to everyone who put pictures on here! I made a pattern on tissue paper and put it together. I am not able to do the fancy edging that a lot of these had, but since I have not used a sewing machine for 18 years, I can't complain! (took two hours to figure out how to use DD's sewing machine...could not find her manual in her room!)

I am going to do our second one today. It should look better since I know what bugs I need to work out from the first one!

All the material came from Joannes and all were on sale yesterday!

Thank you! I made the mickey head hanger myself! I just bought round dowel ends and cut slits for the circles to make the ears and painted the whole thing white. I thought it just added that extra Disney Magic! I'm still working on the top design. I'll post the finished product when I get it done!

Just as AZKathy did, I winged it! I went to Hancock Fabrics and got help from a lady there, who assured me I could do this. But I have no sewing machine, so I hand-stitched the pockets (crude, but if you don't look too close....).
I placed stick-on letters and fishy things on each pocket, along with our names (I made two extenders for two families).
Mine are about 38" long, and 8" wide.
I don't know how to post pics here, but will send my picture to anyone who wants to see. If anyone else can post my
fish extender picture for me, that would be great!
We're on the Wonder January 20.
