You did a GREAT job

Do you think you could post directions?

I am sure a few fellow disers might like to try to make one too.

Why didn't I think of that? LOL I just purchased another one on ebay since I can't find the one I purchased last year.

DH wants to do a FE that looks like a fish.

Thanks everybody! I got the idea when someone on my cruise meet board was joking around saying that she was going to have to hold hers together using duct tape b/c the glue wasn't sticking for some reason.

Please don't steal it! It'd be pretty easy to steal even with a zip tie on it.

As for directions:

I measured out and cut up a brown paper grocery bag 24" x 8" (with the duct tape edging it's a little over, now 8 1/4" across, hope it fits!)
Covered it from top to bottom with white strips of DT overlapping slightly
The pockets are 5 1/2"(L) x 6"(W). I made them by overlapping white strips, back to back. However, now that I think about it, you could also use a paper bag and just cover it the same way. I then used the zebra tape over top of the white. I like the pattern since it doesn't show the lines of the strips of tape. Then put on the decals.
To attach the pockets simply rip strips of white DT and attach the right, left, and bottom sides of the pocket. I overlapped the zebra by 1/4 inch. I didn't attach it flat, but tried to puff it out a bit to make more of a pocket that could hold bulkier items so I attached the left side, then moved the right side in slightly and attached, then the bottom.
Then I edged it with the red DT.
To make the "string" I ripped off a really long strip of red, folded it over length wise several times and attached to the back, again using more DT.

There are several little imperfections. If I made it again, I would measure it out to make sure the pockets are evenly spaced, I just eyeballed these. And I would leave the strips I used to attach the pockets full width, these I cut in half.

Although I'm sure it is easy to make, I'm pretty sure you could start a mini ebay shop for these creative fish extenders, lol! Let me know if you do! (I'd want one just like this but w/ hot pink instead of red)

Absolutely genius! Wondering how the inside of the pocket is. Do you think it might need a layer of DT attaching the inside seam as well, or is the outside attachment strong enough?
I just bought (spontaneous - saw it and had to have it) a few yards of oil-cloth in Minnie/Mickey polka dots. I'm thinking that an oil-cloth/duct tape creation might just work. What do you think?
Thank you for sharing this great idea for those of us without sewing skills, but lots of experience taping things together!

Our FE is fabulous. I like the zebra pattern.

Daniellenbella, you rock!

Thanks for the directions! I may give it a try.

That's awesome! I was picturing a gray thing like ds11's little wallet he made. I am impressed!

That might work, I'd test the duct tape to make sure it holds to the oilcloth. I was thinking that the pockets might need to be a bit deeper, maybe make a pleat at the bottom somehow to make room. I would definately tape the inside seam if you can to make it a bit less likely to start 'unpeeling'.

Gosh there are a lot of great ideas on here. I just need to book a cruise so I can get my idea up here.
