    We simply used Eva Foam Sheets (Craft Foam), hot glue, ribbon, and stickers...all from Michael's.

    I wasnt aware there were instructions for making these. But our FE about 6" wide. We simply folded each sheet in half making pockets with the seams within. We hot glued the seams together, then ran this cute black ribbon with white polka dots through the back of each one of the three pockets.

    Then decorated them...

    Originally I was going to use clothing material and sew them together. But I ran out of time...DH thought of this (he LOVES his Gorilla blue and glue gun...lol)

    We made sure to have our DS's heaviest books on them pressing flat over night.

    It worked like a charm...we used it on Feb 2012 & plan to use it again in Feb 2013

    Well done ! ! Very Creative.

    Folks, would this work as a fish entender? I haven't been on DCL before. Is it too wide, will it fit on the space? Of course, we would need to personalize it :)

    Thanks...[​IMG]

    My FE is about 9 inches wide and we still had about an inch or two to play with.

    Etsy has some cute ones too!!

    I'm not too crafty nor do I have the spare time either. But we found ours on Etsy! :)

    I've just measured it.
    This one is 12 exactly inches... Do you think it will not fit on the space for it by the door?

    If a "Pixie Dust" list is added now because it is too late for the FE list, what is expected of the "Pixie Dust" listed people... do we do people on both lists or just fill the pixie dust list people? I am getting very close to our cruise and don't want to get on the list if I can't make others happy because I run out of time to get things together for them. Ya know? I just want to know what is "expected." Any info would be appreciated. Thank you!!!

    I made pins out of fuse beads with a pirate theme--you can get them at Michael's and JoAnn's. They aren't very expensive and they're cute for pirate night.

    I can't seem to find a thread for my cruise - Dec 7th on the fantasy....is it possible it is too early....I am so excited after learning about FEs!

    I am from Australia though and may have trouble finding one....will try etsy, or maybe put my creative juices to the test and make one!
