ironing?

I bought 2 and I'm ironing on Mickey heads from Eva and Milliepie. I'll post next week on how it turns out. That's when I expect to get to this project
Have you tried ironing yet? I want to smooth out the creases before I decorate but I'm scared to mess it up.

This one is not bad if you want more pockets, it has 5, if you rip out the center seams of the top 3 pockets. Also from IKEA!

You can buy the ikea organizers on eBay. A bit more expensive but I did get one for under $10 even with shipping. Was very wrinkled though.

No, not yet. I'm having surgery in the morning so I'm lining my FE up as my "bed rest" project. Will do it soon

Mine's very wrinkled, and I bought mine from Ikea... I wish I'd looked on Ebay... that would have been easier than going all the way to Ikea!


I'm thinking of painting Mickey Heads on ours with the kids' craft paints... going to do a test patch on the back first, I'll let everyone know how it goes! (Running out of time, we leave in 8 days)!

I just painted Mickey heads on with acrylic ( craft) paint. Looks great! I'm going to try writing names on with a sharpie. I'll post a picture when it is done.

We don't have one by us either. So I had a friend buy one for me. It is very light weight so she mailed it first class and it was only about $1 to mail it.

That was my original plan... But it says do not iron. It is polyester, I'm worried it would melt! Eek!

Sent from my iPad using DISBoards[/QUOTE]

Idk if this is too late to help you, but I saw on the Fb page that someone ironed it anyway. So I had DH unearth my iron (only use it a few times a year ROFL), and I dusted it off and realized that there is a polyester setting! And I don't have an ironing board, let alone a sleeve-thingy, so I took a small cutting board (clean) and stuck that into each pocket as I ironed it. It still wasn't easy though.

Because when I unrolled my soon-to-be FE, one pocket was fine, but the middle and bottom were very wrinkly.

Also, I used just fabric markers for our names. (WARNING: Fabric Markers can BLEED!) I bought that Walmart Disney ribbon, the black background with the red and yellow Mickey Heads? And I ripped off the stripes that came on the pockets and glued the ribbon on with fabric glue. In hindsight, I probably could have left on one of the stripes because that black Mickey-head ribbon is barely wide enough to cover both sets of holes. It's definitely NOT wide enough to cover both rows of holes AND overlap the raw edge from where the lower stripe was. After I glued on the ribbon and let it sit overnight, I then went back over the thing and glued the under-flap where it stuck up a lot IMHO lol.

Then I found this "Wish Upon a Star" pewter charm in my stash and sewed it to the top.

I am trying to put the picture of it here http://i931.photobucket.com/albums/a...g?t=1360035096 [QUOTE=Fabooliss;47227491]

Go to Joanns Fabric and buy disney scrapbook stickers - they are 3-d and stick very well to fabric - I have had several on mine last for quite a few cruises!
