    I have the IKEA chart too and have gotten some wonderful ideas from this thread.. One question: how do you plan to hang this on the hook? Is anyone adding a dowel rod to theirs?

    I attached about a 2' length of Disney themed ribbon to each of the two upper corners. It worked well hanging from the fish.

    Thank you for sharing the ikea pockets. That is a great affordable option. I have an ikea near by, but it did let me add it to the shopping cart so it looks like you can order it online.

    I ended up ironing mine. I set the iron to the synthetic setting, kept moving the iron and stopped every few seconds to make sure the thing wasn't melting LOL. On hindsight, I would only have removed the green trim that comes on the item; the red and blue are nautical colors anyway, right?

    I ironed mine on the lowest steam setting and it worked great :)

    What great ideas and great Fish Extenders pictures! Thank you everyone!!!

    I love my original FE's (there are 7 of us, so we need 2), but they have run their course. We have had them on a Panama Canal cruise, Alaska, Baltic, and Dover to Barcelona repo trip. They have seen better days. So, for our Med cruise this summer, it is time to think about new ones, and these looks GREAT and EASY!! Thanks again all for sharing!!!

    I am probably going there this weekend (not 100% but 80% sure). Do you want me to grab you one?

    We have five in our family and I bought two Ikea hangers. I cut off one pocket and sewed the two pockets at the bottom of the one hanger. I printed images on iron on transfer paper and the. Ironed them onto the fe or each person. I didn't have trouble at all.

    You have to download your picture to a photohosting site (like photobucket, I use tinypic) and copy and past the IMG code here.
