Next you need to sew together the bottom side( the smaller inner part that will go on the back of the head) it is ok if ther is a hole here a lot of bonnets are made with holes in the back. If hand stitching I would double thread and cross stitch to make sure it's strong. Make sure to hemm on the inside

Step 5: Attaching Ribbon

Next you need to sew on the ribbon (or peice of hemming off the dress as I did) to the bonnet so you can secure it on. You want to attach them on the inside of the bonnet to the hemming as shown.
