    Notes:
    •Do not prewash fabrics. Before cutting, press fabrics with a dry iron. You will have enough supplies to make eiher a small treat bag that is 3-1/2” x 2” x 1”, a medium treat bag that is 5-1/2” x 2” x 2-1/4” or a large treat bag that is 7-1/2” x 4-1/2” x 2”.
    •Download and print project template before starting for the diagrams ("Dia.") referenced in this project. Use a 1/4” seam allowance and sew fabrics with right sides together (RST) unless otherwise noted.
    •If you need to wash your treat bags, machine wash cold, gentle cycle. Tumble dry low or hang to dry.

    Sewing:
    Step A: Fold the bag RST so short edges meet; pin (Dia. A).
    Step B: Sew side and bottom, backstitching at the beginning and end to secure the seam. Finger crease the fold on the edge opposite from the seam (Dia. B).
    Step C: Open the bag and line up the side and bottom seams RST; pin. Measure 1" from the point and mark a line from edge to edge. Sew on the marked line to make a ‘boxed’ corner (Dia. C).
    Step D: On the creased edge, match the crease with the bottom seam; pin. Mark and sew as done in step C to box that corner.
