Yup , First get the bag support frame, that fits over the frame block..
then you can get someone local to sew a bag to slide over it.

I had a messenger bag with a HD wide waist strap. i used a piece of coroplast in the bag ,
and found when I wrapped and clipped the buckle strap around the bag frame,
it was OK.

SJS cycles in UK has the bag frames.. separate,
web has pictures of people modifying the bag frames to clip on other pannier bags..

access to a metal fabrication shop? you can make
the bag side of the clip, others have.

FWIW Carradice has a Couple Brompton rack compatible bags , aiming at the commuter , in size..
