Craft: Treat Bags
This Valentine's Day, spread a little love & kindness to all
Classic Play friend and Designer Joya Logue has created these very sweet treat bags that are perfect for filling with candy and giving to classmates, teachers, friends and colleagues.
Iron one piece of fabric onto the shiny side of the freezer paper. Press hard to iron out wrinkles. The goal here is to adhere the paper to the fabric so that you can run it through the printer. So make sure it is adhered well. Carefully trim any excess paper or fabric so that all sides are even or else it will get caught in your printer.
Place paper backed fabric in printer tray (I recommend placing one sheet at a time). Make sure you place it so that you end up printing onto the fabric and not the paper. Cut along the vertical line. Peel off paper backing.
Use pinking shears (or a zigzag stitch) to trim off the top and bottom of fabric. This will reduce fraying.
Iron along fold lines. Stitch along one side. Leave the other side pressed but not sewn.
Fold bag in half by joining the top and bottom together right sides together. Stitch along the opposite side (short side) of the side you just sewed in step 4. Press open seam.
Fold over and press the top of the bag according to the fold line. This forms the casing for the ribbon to be strung through. Sew a line across the base of the casing.
Now you will sew up the open side of the bag. Just sew up to the casing and not into it. You’ll need to leave that part open for the ribbon. Turn the bag right side out.
Take the safety pin and stick it through one end of the ribbon. Use the safety pin to work the ribbon through the casing.
Fill with candy and attach tags.
