The cost of this project is probably around 6 dollars tops.
You can find everything at Wal-mart, if you can't just buy
a fleece blanket like me.

Fleece
needle and thread or a sewing machine
scissors
pencil(optional)
ruler(optional)

Fun fleece beanies that are quick to make, fleece is awesome because it doesn't
ravel. I wish I had a sewing machine but I'm never in one place, so I always
have a needle and thread handy, besides it shows like the work you put into
it.

Basic beanie projected time:

W/ sewing machine: <15 mins
w/o sewing machine: <1 hours, if you sew fast

Step 1: Measuring your noggin

Wrap a straight edge round your head, about where you want it to cover
your forehead. Make sure its not too tight unless you want it that way,
the tighter the more warm I suppose. Fleece is really stretchy, at least
in one direction, but its stretchy none the less so mismeasurements
dont matter at all. After you measure how big your head is, measure
how long you want it to me, just remember at the top you have to round
the corners to make it fit to your head, you lose length. Sew.

I'm a n00b when it comes to sewing this stuff. I'm making a smurf hat for a friend using your method with part of a torn bedsheet, so it's a thinner cotton rather than fleece. I have the "bag sorta thing" ready, but I don't understand what you mean as far as closing the top opening and sewing a "loop."
