English word needed...

... for Arabic ṣurrah صُرَّة , which is something like a little bag or bundle, made by gathering up a piece of cloth and tying a string around it.  But it doesn't have closed sides, so it's not quite a bag.  In the text I'm translating, it contains only one small coin, so it doesn't seem big enough to be a bundle either.  Or can a bundle be small? 

Any suggestions appreciated!
