If you have a Tailor's chalk, mark the edges where you'll cut it.

You'll get a rectangular shaped cloth, then fold it once. Get an inch and get ready to sew both sides together.

Step 3: SEW IT UP!

Sew them together. You can use a sewing machine if you're lucky.
For those who are using a thread and needle with their bare hands, first is to be careful. Wear a thimble if you want to.
You can sew them up however you want, even those with poor sewing skills can make a good one. All you have to do is sew them together. Make sure that you'll sew inside the cloth so the sewn part won't be visible. 

Step 4: The Fringe.

Mark 2 inch on the top of your bonnet for the fringe. Cut them freely, or 1 inch per cut.

Step 5: Closing the Top.
