    Important if you are going to make one yourself - for sealing the bag, do not use your sewing machine! :) The talc dries up the oil too. I tried to use mine and needed to oil it every 3-4 bags :D

    We were in your FE and received one of these from you! I wasn't sure what it was for at first, but it smelled really nice! I'll keep this handy for future beach trips.

    :/ I was afraid that maybe the instructions weren't clear enough on their tags.....Darn!

    Ours didn't have a tag, but no matter, now that I know....it's going with us to the beach next time! This will be handier than a towel for wiping sand off.

    We had a good FE I thought. Lots of nice gifts. We got so much candy on our first FE that we almost didn't sign up this time, but I'm glad that we did!

    I would love to see a picture of one if you have it. I saw those powder pouches the other day and was thinking of trying to make one myself.

    What kind of fabric did you use? Just cotton fabric or fleece?

    I just used a plain woven fabric, like a quilters fabric. A fleece might work, I was worried that not enough powder would get through though. I didn't take any pics of them :/ But I may still have one in my bag *LOL* I made 55 of them!

    It's hard to see in the picture, but the bead says "wish", because it was our daughter's Make A Wish Cruise.

    I wanted to take this opportunity to let everyone know that Corinna did not create those images. PLEASE don't think I'm trying to say that she is taking credit, we just need to give credit to the correct person. :flower3:

    The person who created these is Michelle Lill. You can find her business, Modern Marbling, on facebook or a google search. I am the one who picked the colors and asked her if she could put hidden Mickeys in them.

    I'm not trying to criticize Corinna at all. Again, PLEASE PLEASE don't take it this way. I just want everyone to know that Michelle was kind enough to create these images for FREE for me because I was buying things that she made with the images and she was willing to share the images with anyone.

    If you have a chance, check out Michelle's work as she is very talented. I bought bookmarks and journals with the blue and green hidden Mickey.

    Corinna, thank you thank you for taking your time to reply to all who have asked for the file. :goodvibes

    Feeling inspired by the goodies on this thread. WE sail next March (2014) and have not officially joined our FE group yet. Hoping they will divide it and make it smaller groups.

    Most FE groups will divide after 20. If not I would suggest they do. I love participating. My favorite part is making or buying the gifts. My husband just rolls his eyes and smiles. He knows I have fun with it so just adds that to our cruise budget. I don't go to the spa and I don't play bingo :)

    I'm on that cruise with you. How about we can gang up and insist on it. ;-) Seriously though, let's just ask.

    **WARNING...June 7th, 2014 FANTASY FE SPOILER**






    I've been playing around with ideas...my cruise is about a year away, but I need something to do:lmao:

    When I cruise, I like to dress tropical, so I figured maybe tropical flower hair clips for the ladies...and I thought I'd put together some beaded bracelets for the girls...babies are easy, it's the men and boys that I'm still trying to figure out.:confused:

    Like I said, I'm just playing with ideas now...but later on for the bracelets I may do some with the red, black and yellow Mickey colors...and I may make up special clips for the women for Pirate night.(If I make pirate night hair clips, then I will have to include 2 hair clips per lady so everyone can have one pirate style and one regular bright tropical)
