How to remove bag from swivel

I put a big arse vintage bag on a vintage everlast swivel, and I cant get it off. The swivel is a ball and hook, and the bag has a big arse leather loop, with some kind of heavy fabric stiched into it. The hook is getting caught on the fabric. I don't want to damage either of these any more than I have. Can anybody give me any advice. I have tried using pliers, vice grips, and KY type lubricant. Any help is appreciated.

Can you get the tip of some needle nose plyers in there to help guide the thing out? Even the thin end of a chop stick?

Yes, pictures!

Thanks for the help. Unfortunately I have not been able to post pictures on this sight.When I try to post a picture, I get "a security token is missing". I am not computer literate enough to figure it out.

Got it..... I brought it in from the damp garage and let the leather dry for a day, to shrink it a bit. I then slid a piece of "crazy carpet" between the loop and the swivel and used a pair of pliers to pull the loop off. Lesson learned. I have two vintage bags with the same thick loop, Weider and a ATF. I won't be putting either of these on a ball hook swivel again. "D" rings only. Thanks for the suggestions everybody, I thought I was going to have to either sacrifice the swivel or the bag, or leave the bag on that swivel permanently.
