I thought if I can wind rope from fabric to make a bowl, I might be able to succeed with newspaper as well. After trying out different widths of strips, and making small round base samples with black, gray and white thread, I came to a solution.
Two 2 inch wide strips wound together made a good sturdy rope. I wanted the subtle colors of the newspaper to show through, and therefore decided on invisible thread to construct the bowl. Machine sewn together with narrow zigzag stitch.
I am very pleased with the result.
