The correct way would be to take it to an upholstery shop that fixes convertible tops, but if you can't afford that get some duct tape that is the same color as the inside of the top and put over the hole, then get some RTV sealer that is close to the same color as your top and sparingly work some into the hole from the outside and let dry before use, of course this is only a temporary fix, and you should leave the top up until you can have it fixed professionally.
