  2. Using the black satin, make the basic purse according to pattern.
  3. Cut the following pieces of tie-dye satin: 14"x18" for the bow and 4"x8" for the knot.
  4. Fold the bow fabric in half lengthwise with right sides together and sew the long side seam. Turn the tube right side out. With the seam in the middle back, press the tube. Repeat step 4 with the knot fabric.
  5. Bring the raw edges of the bow tube together, tucking one end into the other about 1/2". Hand sew together to form a big loop.
