    The door number is on the door, the "fish" is on the wall next to it.

    Elderfam: Where did you get the beautiful Magic Transatlantic artwork? Was that already on the fabric or is it an iron-on or what?

    Why is there an 8 inch limit on the width? :confused3

    Excellent question. I can't find them either.

    Heres a link on how to make one I found posted in another thread.

    Just substitute your material of choice and embellishments. This could end up looking very cool and no ones would look just like yours!

    Oh, Yeah, Amy! I got a lime green one at the same time. This year we are going on the Transatlantic Repo (this Saturday, actually) and I've been sewing Fish Extenders like there's no tomorrow! I am having lots of fun!

    We are on the eastbound transatlantic cruise, and DCL sent out magnets. The compass rose was in the background of one of the magnets. I cut it out, blew it up on the copier, then using crayola pencils improved the color and a number 2 lead pencil improved the boundries. I then turned it into an iron on transfer. Any design put out by disney is fair game to me! :rotfl:

    The 8 inches is so that it fits under the fish without sticking out to wide.

    I know CQUICK has been making lots of fish extenders, please post photos for all to see your great work. :thumbsup2

    Also, anyone else who has made them, please post photos of them for others to learn from and photos of them hanging next to your staterooms. :idea: There are so many people who ask questions about them this would be a great learning tool.:teacher:

    Let the legend of the Fish Extender live on!:rotfl: :rotfl:

    For those that already have a cruise scheduled, you can ck the cruise meets forum for the thread set up for your particular cruise. Many times, there's a group of folks who will participate in fish extenders stuff. Its kinda like secret santa for all who wish to participate. We're really looking forward to doing this for our Sept 08 cruise. I think its going to be really fun. :cheer2: Just have to start thinking about items to actually put into the FEs. :coffee:
