stitch up tutorial part 2

  Make another pass with the needle and thread across the cords as shown. Space the stitching out so the cross threads cover the whole area of the parallel cords.
 Now there are three passes of thread securing the cords in place. Draw the thread through the cords and pull firmly to bind the cords together.
 Reverse the needle and place a fourth pass diagonally through the cords so the needle emerges near the origin point.

Pull firmly to tighten the thread.
This shows the stitching complete with the two pieces of thread drawn through the cords ready to tie off.
