This gorgeous evening bag is made out of an old table runner. I really like the rich colours and texture and combined with the beaded necklace strap I think it makes the perfect winter accessory. I doubled over the fabric so that the lining was the same as the facing and I used the foot sections from a pair of black tights to make the side panels. These stretch when the bag opens and go back into place when it is closed.
