I LOVE THE IDEA and i am not a sewing person!

It's about 12 inches....but I'm not a sewing person either and wasn't about to try to cut it smaller! So if it sticks out...oh well! LOL

They are just two sizes of dowel caps, glued on. I used a glue gun, but they came off at different points, so I am going to see about the glue dots. Those are super sticky!!

great thanks!! i still think it's a great idea and it'll hide all your goodies better too, and things wont fall out. I might see about looking for another one that isnt so wide for me......have a great weekend!!

Why dont you use wood glue? That's what I do when the ends dont stay on their own (usually the dowel is large than the ends and I have to hammer them in)

Does it work well after the wood has been painted? For some reason I was thinking it didn't but I haven't done tons of work with it.

What is the maximum width allowed for a fish extender (on the Wonder) without it hanging into the hallway?

You are OK with 8 1/2 inches....if it is going to have a dowl rod in it.

If you use a soft cloth bag (as opposed to the FE you see on the boards) it could be wider as it would droop from the fish anyway.

Pretty sure we will have one of the longest FE's!

Here is ours! We have 5 kids, so it was tricky, but I love how it turned out!






My kids had so much fun picking out what they wanted on their pockets! I got all the designs from some very talented people on etsy!
Can't wait to use it!
It was lots of fun to make, but I know why they charge to make them! Whew! I am pretty sure it would have been much cheaper and easier to just buy one ... but where's the fun in that? LOL! Let's just say, I won't be making any more any time soon!
