They sell little premade lace doilies about the size of coasters at craft stores like Michael's--I think they might even sell lacy flowers, too, come to think of it...

you could make a round Rosette but cutting a length of lace and sewing long stitches up one side then pulling it tight.  (make sure you hang onto the thread tails though) It should gather the one side up in a loop, then you can sew it into a tight spiral then sew to your bag.

Not sure if the directions are clear though...  I sew so much I'm not sure if I can translate well to non sewers.
