[QUOTE=gatorfreud;45343406]Ok so I am finally back! We sailed June 1, but I just got home after spending some time with family, so I can finally post my FE gifts. I had sooooo much fun making everything! We got so many incredible gifts on our cruise, handmade cups, bags, paracord bracelets, sand bottles, CDs, magnets, coasters, what else!? I am sure I am forgetting some. Plus a ton of yummy and useful things and hometown gifts as well. Amazing!!!!

Here is what I made - the main stuff anyway. For the families, passport covers and luggage handles. For the kids, sewn Disney bags stuffed with stuff.

I want to go on another cruise just to make FEs again!! Well, and for many other reasons, of course!

I went with a luggage theme - so there's a canvas bag to help cart things around on the trip (or organize your cabin or carry whatever at home)


There is a set of four luggage handle covers to help find your suitcases amid the maze in the port or airport (and to help soften the load of your overstuffed souvenir bag)



There are also keychains (Not as fancy as some of those I've seen on this board...) to keep the memory of your cruise with you throughout the year.

Everything is bundled nicely with a card & poem describing the gift:



I hope that everyone likes them. Credit to the creative geniuses on this board who provided the ideas that led to this FE gift!

I'm so mad at myself for not opening this bundle yet (still haven't completely unpacked). I would have put the handle covers to good use. I thought there was just the tote bag rolled up. Can't wait to get home and see the rest of the treasures.

Hi Kim,

All your FE gifts look awesome! My daughter would love to make the bracelets. I see where you got the charms, thanks. Could you tell me where you got the clasps and such? Also what did you use for the bracelet part? I am so not good at things like this so any information you could give me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so very much!!

Hi Susan:

I found the bracelets on clearance at Joann's - they were already made bracelets with some other charm in the middle - I just took it out and replaced with the Mickey. Sorry I can't be more helpful!

And thanks Jdismom!!

Kim

Those are really cute. Thanks for sharing. Last night my dd16 was looking through the threads and LOVED a lot of the things on here Especially the jewelry, hair bows, and keychains.

given on our Alaska cruise over the 4th of July

Ok.. not really home made, but I did design on the computer to have the beanies created..

This is one of the gifts we gave out for our Alaskan cruise. We passed them out before we got to Tracy's Arm on July 4th, so that they could be used during the cool day going through the fjord and glacier viewing.
