I see two problems with your attempt to put the bike in the bag:

  1. fold the handlebar stem before folding the frame. the way that you have it folded makes the handlebar stick out too far.
  2. fold the pedals. without folding the pedals the bike will be too wide.

The Origami bags fit bikes much larger than this when the bikes are folded properly.
By EXTENDING the bars beyond the wheels, it was indeed possible to fold the bike with the bar between the wheels, squeeze it in to the bag - still necessary to remove the seat post and pedals (mine do not fold), appears to be a workable solution. Biggest issue now is clearing rear rack, zipper separated during the first attempt, but it should be possible.

Thank you, Paul.
