(A bunch of Little Mermaid stuff, which could be appropriate for the cruise!)

Here's the link to what I found: http://www.joann.com/fabric/licensed...age=1&psize=48
I have checked at our local Joann's. Actually, it is where I bought the other stuff for my fish extender. I will take a look at the link, though and see if their website has something I want.

My back-up plan was to take the .jepg file of the fabric and iron it onto some plain white fabric with some t-shirt transfer paper. I can doctor it up in photo shop. But I really just want the fabric. I am glad the lady wrote me back finally. Thanks so much for sharing Sara.

Aw, hope you get it soon. That must be frustrating. I can relate!

OK, so when I got home from work I got busy on the computer and have a rough design of five different fish extenders.

You guys let me know which one you like best.



My tennis pal that has an embroidery machine is helping me. I want to put "Cruisin' with the Cranes" at the top and our names on each Mickey/Minnie head with the Disney font. I was thinking of using yellow thread for that, but maybe white will be better.

Let me know what you think.

OK that is totally weird. I can see that picture on my computer but not on my tablet. Strange. Can you guys see the photo in the post above ?? Going back downstairs to kick the kids off of the computer so I can check it.

ETA: Yep ... I can see it on the regular computer. Weird. Anyway, tell me what you think.

I circled the one I like. I also played around with my Disney font and I think I like the white better over all. Although the red is cute on the Minnies, and I think red would look good for your "Crusin' with Cranes" (awesome BTW!) across the top.


All your prototypes are just too cute, so you can't lose any way you choose to go. Hope we'll be crusin' with the Cranes to Alaska one day!

I like that one best, too. It uses more of my awesome Disney fabric. THANKS for putting the names in there. It really helps me. I think I like the red lettering better than the white.

Tell me what program you used. And how did you load the Disney font into that program ?? I NEED it !! I played around with it in Photoshop but couldn't figure out how to load the font. But I didn't try very hard, the kids were wanting to get on the computer and play Wizard 101.

And I totally hope you can come cruisin' with us, too. To Alaska or anywhere !!

I like the one on the far left, too. The red bows for the Minnie's stand out more on it! Very cute.

Thanks so much for your input. I may have to go with the second one from the left because I don't have a whole lot of the black and white Mickey fabric. But I am so thrilled with it. I wish I had a whole bolt of each type.
