I'm not certain I understand, but if you google [cover a plate with fabric] you can watch several youtube videos and check out some instruction pages. Seems that most rely on Modge Podge. You likely could hot-glue the initial onto the plate once the plate is dry.

I am not clear what you are asking. I am happy to help if I can understand what your intent is for the bandana. Thanks!

As you know the plate is round and the bandana is square. You will need to actually cut the edges off the bandana and start at the inside of the plate first. Place a small dab of glue on the center of the plate to hold this in place. Make sure that you flatten this out and get out the bubbles of the glue.

Normally you should allow this to dry a bit because now you will need to work with the cloth to get it around the dip in the plate. Add some small glue here around the ring. Don't put too much because it does seep through the material. Flatten this out and work your way to the outer edges of the plate and smooth out the wrinkles in this area.

Once this area has dried you can move to the rim of the plate and do the dame. Allow this to dry. Now turn it over and glue the material on the outside of the plate around the rim.

In some areas, you may need to cut away some of the material or make small cuts in the material to get it to fit the backside of the plate. Work the material around the backside of the plate-like you have done on the top. Only work in small areas at a time. I normally do this in 3 steps so that is 3 areas that need gluing.

As you get closer to the center of the plate you will see where to cut the material so that it fits nicely on the plate.

Good luck.

There are some excellent YouTube videos on this subject but I'm assuming you plan to attach the bandana to the back of the plate (so the plate is still usable)?
The bandana can be attached to the back of a plate quite easily, but if you're thinking of putting it on the front side as decoration that will be more difficult.
The wooden initial is the puzzling part.
If you plan to cover the front side and place the initial in the plate you may have to experiment with laying the bandana in the plate until you figure out how it will fit. You may have to cut it in strips (maybe pie wedge style stripes).

You will need a few supplies before you start but the main product will be Mod Podge.
Here is an excellent YouTube video on this subject:
