        The dimensions of the angled lines might differ. By changing the angle you can make from an open bowl to a bowl with vertical sides. 
        • Sew the folded piece along the dart lines with the sewing machine.  

        • Fold again the piece in the middle, draw darts on the other two sides and sew along these lines.

        • Rlace the two bowls, one inside the other, with their right sides together. 

        • Align the edges of the two pieces. 

        • Sew along the perimeters, leaving a hole, enough to put later your hand, in order to turn the bowl, inside out. 

        • Place your hand inside the hole, and turn the bowl, inside out. 

        • Use needle and thread to close the hole.
