    Here you can see the X sewn across them.

    Starting in the center, sew a zig zag stitch so that it catches both side of the cord and secures them together. When sewing in the center area like this, you'll have to pivot a lot because it is such a tight curve. As you get further out you can just sew and sew because it is easier to turn out there. For now, just sew up to that point where the X touches the outside of the spiral. As you can see, you will end up with several spirals around your work. So go ahead and clip the tread and unspiral those extra rounds.

    Start zig-zagging again and just keep turning it by hand to guide the work through the needle.

    Once you have the bottom as big as you want, lift the bottom up so that it is diagonal with the plate. We're going to start the walls of the bowl now. Continue sewing but do so now so you are pulling the cord a little to the left as you sew, which causes it to form the sides as you go around. Continue sewing around with the bottom lifted up on the diagonal like this.

    You can make handles on the bowl by cutting the thread and bumping out the cord a bit, then start sewing again. Afterwards, I come back and put a reinforcing zig-zag on both sides of the handle.

    I like to finish the cord off on the top edge by cutting it on a diagonal right before the handle so that it is not so obvious and then just zig zag over the end a few times to secure it down.

    That's it! Enjoy!
