Where can I buy inexpensive Fish Extenders?

Does anyone know where I can buy inexpensive fish extenders? I need a couple more for a Jan 19th cruise.

Thanks for your help!

They are easy to make. I grabbed a couple of small reusable shopping bags and will connect them by sewing the straps of one to the bottom of the other - making a 2 pocket FE. Total cost = $1.99. (And I can barely sew - got a mini sewing machine from Zulilly for a Christmas craft project.) But you can attach a couple of bags with a simple needle and thread.

I'm sure others will have good ideas as well.

As PP noted, just sew a couple of small canvas bags together. Sometimes Michael's has some cute ones.

I think mine cost maybe $2 plus stuff I had on hand. It was 2 oven mitts from the 99 cent store, yarn (and I'm a knitter so I have SOOOOOOOOOOO much yarn), and a patch someone gave me (it was a vintage patch that I glued onto two pins). Hardest part? Making the pin.

I made my FE out of duct tape and mailing envelopes. If I knew how to post a pic here you could see it. I really like it and it cost very little because I got the duct tape for half off with coupons and the post office had those tyvec envelopes free to take. I am proud of the way it turned out.

Would love to see it - DD wants to make ours with duct tape.

Here's a thread on how to post pics http://www.disboards.com/showthread....o+post+picture

I bought ours at Ikea. It is a perfect sized, 3 pocket canvas holder. I added a Disney applique to each pocket to personalize it. I found it in the laundry section and think I paid at most $6 for it.

:D It was something simple and I thought if I never took another Disney cruise I had new oven mitts. Plus I am incredibly cheap when I can make something.... IE I was thinking of knitting it instead...

Okay. So I'm new at all this. Been on one cruise. What do you do with the fish extenders?

On our first cruise I hung a reusable shopping tote on our fish and used that. It worked well and cost about a dollar.

You don't need a fancy fish extender.
