Also, I read somewhere on here that someone was personalizing pillow cases. I just found out about the pillow case idea for my boys. I was wondering how they could be personalized.

Thanks again!

Some people have embroidery options on their sewing machines. They are able to personalize with the child's name and sometimes a Disney character as well.

I was going to order some stuff to make goody bags for the kids that had some pirate stuff in it, but then after talking with someone in our group I thought they could get stuff like this already because of pirate night (I was going to do tattoos, mini telescopes, pirate rings).

Does anyone have any ideas for someone who isn't really crafty and that won't cost me a ton of money?

Thanks!

The only thing you get on pirate night is a bandana. For the kiddies I made a necklace w/ charms and black cords from ebay. Cost about $5.00 for 25 necklaces. Got mickey heads for the girls and skull and crossbones for boys. Added some candy & temporary tattoos for the boys. The girls got a small nailpolish and lip balm. I also did some homemade postcards and pens so everyone (kids & adults) can send it from CC. Good luck and have fun!!!

We bought a personalized iron-on off of eBay last year. It would be pretty easy to make your own, though. Just put something together on your computer and print it out on transfer paper.

Hi Sari-

The magnets sound lovely! If that's what you have time/money/inclination to do, then that's plenty! FE exchanges are about sharing a little Disney magic and shouldn't be causing you stress or worry!

I feel the same way. Everyone seems so creative here. I don't know if I could be as creative. Thanks for putting my worries to rest. Our cruise is in September so I need to get working.

Using a rotary blade, I cut the length to 11" and stitched the two sides together 1/4" from the ends. The key fob hardware then clamps to the stitched end covering that stitching. For ease of handling, I worked on sections of 44" at a time.
did you find these in bulk? I found the fob in bulk but not the mickey head key ring...wanted to make some for a friend of mine

Can someone please explain this to me so I can see if I can add it to our FE gift?

Thank you so much!

The Hidden Mickeys that this referred to are graphics to be used for glass tile pendants. They are kind of marble effect designs with Hidden Mickeys.

Try this:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/20x-New-Iron...06%26rk%3D1%26

I have bought a bunch of things from this seller before and would not hesitate to use him again.

Too hot to craft!

Heading towards our August cruise and I have so many ideas for our FE but it is getting too hot to craft! I don't think I am even close to getting half of what I had hoped to do finished in time. There are times I wish we had an AC, and this is one of them! I need to book another cruise so I can finish my FE ideas!

I really wanna get opinions on the stuff I have made already but I know I cannot post anything or give hints even till we get back. If anyone wants to help me out who is NOT on my cruise please PM me. I would appreciate some advice.
TIA

They sell the pillowcases on Etsy. You can have them personalized.

I have 2 personalized and autograph pillowcases, as well as picture mats. While cute, not really useful. Now I am looking for a nice tote bag to have signed. DisneyStore.com sells them, although they are not the cutest or best price. Any suggestions?

Any ideas?????
You can print an image on vellum paper and cut it out with a circle cutter and insert that into the ornament, vellum works best because it uncoils nicely. I did something similar for my cousins wedding favors.
