We got something like this on our last cruise. It had a picture of the ship, along with the dates, printed on clear paper, cut into a circle and inserted into a small clear glass ornament. Unfortunately, it broke during the packing and travel home (and we were only half hour away). Take this into consideration if it is something breakable.

Our FE gifts

I think I've figured out how to post photos so here goes:

My daughter and I made bottle cap stuff. We were on the Magic to Canada last week.

For the women we made necklaces:

We were excited to see two girls wearing them one night (OK, their mom's gave them their FE gifts! But nice to see someone wearing our gift!)

For the men we made keychains:

We were on the Canadian cruise and the plaid background is the tartan of Nova Scotia. I found a woman on etsy who believe it or not was from Nova Scotia so she made the image for me!

For the family, we made magnets. You can't really see it on the edges but we dusted them in a fine glitter.

My daughter and I had fun making everything! It was an easy craft project for us to do together! And she loved delivering everything!

(I couldn't figure out how to turn the photos around! But the necklace says Keep Calm and Cruise On with a Mickey head)

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.
I just found this ribbon, but have another idea for its use, will post pics when I finish.

Gonna go back to the older threads and see what else inspires me as well!

Just jumping in to discourage the "minnie" emergency kits or "bare" necessities kit... over half the people in my last cruise did something like this. I think the idea has become really popular. It's a great idea and very cute, but not when half your exchange does it! lol

Almost four year and 249 + 31 pages of incredible and creative ideas

Wow, I've been reading almost everynight for a week I finally made it through all 249 pages of the 1st Homemade FE thread and have completed all 31 pages on this thread. I have made a list to refer back to and have explored sewing and embroidery machines based on you amazingly creative and talented folks.

The first posts on the original thread were begun in October 2008. I feel like I have completed a six week sewing or craft course. I've scanned a hundred pictures, at least, and have learned so much. I'm still not sure of my primary FE gift, but I know is won't be a minnie emergency or bare necessities "kits".

Three of our sons, two DIL's, and two grandsons, will be with us on our first Disney cruise, so we will have at least three different FE gifts to post when we return. I've already seen some of our fellow cruisers posting on this and the original thread, so I'll likely wait until we return in October to post pictures.

Just can't help but say it again, wow!

Sorry all! I just saw the posts about the passport cover tutorial not working - that is so weird. I can;t get into it now either. Maybe all you DIS crafters were crashing the blog and she added a password! HA! Who knows...

anyway, I found this one. Pretty close. Dimensions slightly different - you still start with a 6in x 12 in rectangle (same as other). the only difference in the one i made was that one side you fold in 1.75 inches, the other side 2.25 inches.

Let me know if you have questions!

concerned about theft on ship, awful, i know, but something to consider.

Many people are saying they use the plastic ties to tie on the fish extenders, but if there's ribbon too, can't someone just cut through the ribbon if they want it bad enough?

People are just too callous these days and even on a Dis ship you can't be sure. Just hope none of our gifts mysteriously walk away either.

any other ideas of how to really secure the fe? guess you could put the strap tie through the fabric itself somehow.

I zip tie the FE but only through the ribbon. I doubt someone would want my personalized FE. But I have heard of some people putting gifts in then the recipients saying the never got them. Very sad. We don't want to have to check it every hour for gifts. Suggestions?

It's funny you said this because I thought the same thing. I assumed I was being overly paranoid and didn't say anything.

But, for my solution, instead of using a dowel in the top pocket, I used a stiff piece of plastic tubing (plumbing supplies) cut to the width of the FE so it doesn't show on either side. I put that in the place the dowel would normally go and then threaded some colored 12 gauge wire (jewelry making supplies) through it and will use that as the hanging part and zip tie it to the fish. Where the wire connects to itself will be inside the tube. Someone would need to either spend some time or have wire cutters to get it off.

Like I said, probably paranoid and overly cautious on my part, but mine is Mickey themed and not personalized.
