Make two buttonholes 1” apart and approximately 3" to the inside edge of circle of lace fabric. The buttonholes should be 5/8" in length. Cut open. Put the satin circle and the lace circle wrong sides together. Sew around the circle, lace side up with the three-thread overedge stitch. Decorative thread will appear on lace side.
Stitch a casing inside the circle using the chainstitch, placing the buttonholes in the center of the casing stitches.

To form casing, one stitching line should run 2-1/2" from the edge and the other 3-1/4" from the edge. Run cording through casing entering and exiting at buttonholes. Draw the cord to close bag. Knot the two ends together. Form a bow with the organza ribbon and attach it and the rosettes to upper section of bag near the casing.
