You could always use stitch witchery... make a test swatch and see if it'll work.

I suggest putting a liner in, because it'll help eliminate needle pokage yanno?

Ah, the wonder that is stitch witchery. I very much second that suggestion. But yes on the liner in the bag, because it will eliminate needle pokage and it will help if something tiny like a stitch marker or a tapesrty needles omehow gets loose. It'll just stay in the liner.

Its this roll of scratchy stuff that you line the edges of your liner with and then you iron the lining in the bag, and it sticks. Hold on, I'll find a picture, because its kind of hard to describe. Here we go!

And heres a set of instructions on how to do it:
