I did a search for "pocket" on the IKEA website since I was curious as well- this is what I came up with:



Article Number:
202.157.64
price $4.99
"most likely" in stock in new haven.

Product dimensions
Width: 10 ¼ "
Height: 26 ¾ "

Hope this size will work- someone who's been around longer might have better feedbak.

I'm tempted to go get one too but it's an hour each way for me and there's no way I'd walk out of IKEA spending only $4.99! Post holiday and pre cruise I'm on a short leash.
Guess I'm back to the crafting table...

We finally gave in and ordered off Etsy. We looked everywhere. That one from Ikea is adorable but we need 5 pockets and we could find nothing and I don't sew. We thought about trying to figure something out with canvas bags but decided by the time we bought the materials and the time it would take me to try to get it done, it was worth just spending the $50. The thing that was holding me back is that it's our first time and my parents are taking me and my two boys and my hubby is staying home to work because he doesn't have the vacation time. If we ever sail DCL again I'm sure he will be with us so it didn't make a lot of sense to buy a personalized FE with my parents names and then me and the boys that we would likely never use again. What I decided to do was not have the family name and individual names embroidered on it so that it would be easier to use again. That's the only way I could justify spending the money.

Is this one small enough I thought the maximum wit was 8 inches and this is wider ... if that size does work it looks perfect ! Can someone comment?

We made 'if lost return to xx cabin' stickers using name tags off of our printer. I saw that people had used them on lots of neat things. It was for the adults. For the babies I made personalized diaper bag tags. Teenagers got personalized folders. Go fish games for the kids. The best part was I saw that they were used and it took about zero luggage space. I am more handy with a computer than anything else. My favorite ones I received were a Mickey head chalkboard that we are still using along with the drink coasters. Our fridge is now well decorated and we still love listening to the cd with cruise music and horn toots. I am collecting hotel key cards to decorate/put a magnet on so that there is a spare key for each room to keep on the lights.

I used a cola 12 pack carton opened up longways as my base for my duct tape FE. Now we have it hung in a hallway with souvenirs.

Can't wait to do it again. Hurry up and tell us what the Magic and Wonder will do!

I love this but we live no where near an IKEA and they don't sell this product online. :-(

Do you have any photos? I'm having trouble visualizing.

For the stickers, did you put the cabin # or did you leave that part blank? What did people put stickers on?

Also, what is the personalized folder for?

This is our first Disney Cruise so maybe I'll understand better after our cruise.

This is the exact one I bought. It is a perfect size. I added some Disney things I found at Joanne's Fabric store.

Yes - this is the one that I bought! Worked great as a FE holder with the deep pockets. I added Disney appliques to the pockets and a long Disney themed ribbon so that it hung easily off the fish by the cabin door.

There just those hello my name is blank stickers. I put a clip art of Mickey and return me to and the room number And date of sailing. Totes, camera cases, paperback books, iPad cases, stuff like that.

Folder was in a pirate theme, with name and room cruise date, etc. I think it had a word search and other printout paper games. Our cruise was right before school started so it could be used the first day of school.

On, yes, my kids reminded me that we gave window markers so that they could write notes on the mirror. The problem is that the cleaning attendant might erase it!

Many people used the printable magnet paper.

Next time I am tempted to make laundry magnets that say something nice like 'if I don't get here when this machine stops please call on my wave phone @ ______________, thank you. If they are cute enough they would live forever on my dryer at home as a souvenir.

Let us know what you come up with.

Do you use those to hang on your door so people can leave you notes or presents in them?

We used it on our Magic cruise last month and it worked perfectly! It fit just fine on the wall with the fish clip.

I snipped the tassels off the two lower pockets so I would have plenty of space for my Disney appliqués. I think it turned out really nice!
