Warping top and bottom of text

This may be obvious, but I can't seem to get the effect I'm looking for. I'm trying to curve the top and bottom of a line of text to look like the lettering on the front of this shirt:

The built-in text warp tool ("shell") wants to warp either the top or the bottom, not both.

Can anyone point me to a tutorial or give me quick tutorial here?

Thanks so much.

Type out what you want, rasterize the type layer,

Edit - Transform - Warp

Just grab the upper and lower corner handles and drag to your hearts content.

It helps to have the grid on, or to make some guides, just to make sure that you warp it evenly.



Good Day

It took me way to long to figure out how to produce that effect, I had spent hours trying to use the liquify tool before I realized how awesome the warp thing is.

Good Day
