I got Mine!

I wish I was creative like most of you and could sew....but I went ahead and went on eBay and i GOT Mine!

It's a Pooh design!

Now I just have to plan for the 28 people on our DIS meet who are doing this with me on our cruise.

Appreciate the responses about doing one per cruise or one per day.

With so many of us I really need to think this one thru....

thanks everyone for sharing!

How can I "spruce" this thing up and make it look more Disney and more "FE" appropriate?! All suggestions (no matter how horrible they actually are ) are MORE than welcomed!!!
It looks like it is nylon, which might make it difficult to do any iron-on type stuff. If you think that you would use it in the future, I wouldn't get rid of all of the extra pockets (I'm guessing you were planning to cut it down).

You might be able to hand stitch on some appliques, or use stickers.

Does it have three grommets at the top? It might be hard to hang as it could buckle up in the middle if you threaded ribbon on the two outside ones.

Sorry that I don't seem to be much "help"! I have seen where people just hung a cutely decorated tote bag...no major FE pockets or anything.

I thought I had posted a pic of ours when I finished it, but looking back, I didn't.

I can't wait to use it again!! It was so much fun to make (and take!!!) that there may be more coming. We are doing Halloween this year and right before Christmas next year!

Thanks. I might just break down and buy the materials to make one myself.

I ordered some DCL ribbon from eBay. You could stitch something like that around it.

I'm concerned that it will look weird with just 2 of us and having 12 pockets. I was thinking about somehow folding it in half and attaching the bottom to the back of the top, but that might look weird too.

I think I'm just going to have to break down and buy something.

LOVE the idea of reusing what you have, for me it brings out my creative vibe! It's hard to see the material, but just guessing on the fabric this is what I would do:

You can cut it (I'd cut to 4, 2 might look 'too' small) and leave as much as you can fabric-wise on the cut end.

Buy some cute disney fabric - not fleece - cotton fabric. Buy 1/4 yard. Measure the width of your hanging thing, and turn in every side 1" and steam press. It should have a finished edge and be the width of the hanging thing. Make the piece as long as one of your pockets (looks about 6"?)

Use something called stitch witch, and on the folded edges, press it with your iron to keep the edges from falling open.

Buy iron on letters, and 'write' your name on this flap, then use the stitch witch to 'adhere' to the bag, or use fabric glue.

Fill the bottom clear pockets with sand, sanddollars, etc. and seal with fabric glue.

For your pockets, get high quality prints done of anything Disney, and use a glue stick - glue the front of the picture and press against clear pocket.

Have fun, hope this helps!

PS Sorry, looked again and it seems the pockets are fabric/nylon. You can still do the high quality pictures, and 'craft' sew them using a big needle and yarn. Gives it a scrapbook kind of look

It's actually ribbon! I ordered it from eBay. Just search Disney ribbon. The bag is a simple nylon drawstring bag...cut the front down for a pocket and sewed on the ribbon. I'm also using the ribbon to cover foam frames for my FE gifts!

Here is what I made for my sister and I. Fish extender and lanyards. I will be adding the plastic sleeves to the lanyards. The names are on double tagboard. I'll get them laminated and attach a pin to the back. Then they can just be pinned to the pockets. The ribbon has Minnie dot bows and yellow daisy flowers. The pockets have a pleat down the middle. Although the FE is only 8" wide, the pockets have 12" of material. I hope that will give enough room.



I also got my sister a pair of Minnie earrings to wear and me a pair of Daisy earrings!

Loving all of these!

I was totally inspired by this thread and had a go. I can't use a sewing machine so it's all hand-sewn - I just wasn't convinced that glue would work! It's my DS's design and I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.
