Now, more and more users like using a tie or other small vintage supplies to make an evening bag.
Steps to Make an Evening Bag from a Neck Tie
- Disable the label, interfacing and lining from the neck tie.
- Iron the fabric, and cut the length of the tie into four equal pieces.
- Stitch the longs sides of the right sides together to create a rectangular piece of fabric. Attach the strips by alternating wide and narrow widths and using 1/4 inch seam tolerance.
- Cut two light fusible sheets with 6 inches wide, 9 inches long. Iron them to the back of the sewn tie fabric, and then cut out the fused tie fabric.
- Remove the paper backing from the fusible web on the tie pieces. Make the fused faces of the two side panels face down on the back of the lining fabric. Iron tie piece to the lining, and cut out.
- Place the two fused tie pieces together. Sew a quarter inch seam on both short sides and one long side for the outside of the evening bag. Cut corners and turn right side out.
- Cut two sheets of fabric 6 inches wide and 9 inches long. Sew them with the right sides facing. Sew a quarter inch seam on both short sides and one long side. Leave a 3-inch opening along the long seam.
- Cut 3 1/2 inch wide tape. Fold them with the longs side, press the bias strips and top stitch their length.
- Match the original edge of the stripes with the original edge on the evening bag. Pin it at the side seams and the middle of one side.
- Sew the evening bag inside the lining bag with the right sides together.
- Stitch the opening closed. Iron bag.
- Make a 45-inch length of the beading wire.
