I received some questions about the Man's shirt treat bag featured in this post. Some of you wondered why I made it so small since the smallest cello bag SU sells is 3" x 5". This is a great question and here's why. When I thought about making this treat bag I thought that I would used the Sizzix Scallop bag die (I think the real reason was I wanted to buy the die). By using the die I only had to do the scoring for the collar.
Here is the treat bag re-done to use the SU 3 x 5 cello bag.
Here are the 2 shirts. I guess you could also say one is a medium shirt and the other extra large. The basic construction is the same. Here are the new measurements: 3 1/4" x 9 3/4". score at 4" and 5". The side that is longer is where you will score and cut for the collar. Place the 3 1/4" side at the top and measure down 3/4" on both sides and from the 3/4" measure and cut 1" in.
Fold the tabs in to form the collar. Add the buttons, pocket and top stitich as you please! I just realized that you could also add a little pocket on the inside and insert a gift card. Brilliant huh? I hope I am the one who gets to go when he uses this gift card! My hostess clubs are making this project this month. I hope they like it! I forgot to tell you that this paper is from the Sweet Slumber Specialty pack. It is a ittle heavier and textured, it looks like seersucker. This pack as well as the original paper I used, Parisian Breeze is on the Last Chance Accesories list. Hurry and order it before they are gone!
