Do not try to overfill bag with compost as this tends to compact compost and can also lead to bag splitting. The bag should not be round but more flat so it hangs flat against wall, trellis, post etc. The bag can be hung from a suitable nail, screw, bracket etc. Care should be taken so as not to over-water, as flower bags tend to retain more moisture than hanging baskets. In the event of your flower bag drying out just lay it in a tray of water until the compost is fully moist.
