No Sew Sack from Rachel Ashwell Sheet Bag

Hope everyone had a safe and happy July 4th!  I didn't get to do much crafting this weekend but I did manage to make this little no sew sack that I plan to store some craft supplies in.  The bag is actually from some Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic sheets I got from Target.  The little bag was too cute for me to toss so I came up with this instead:
I added some vintage lace with safety pins for the strap.  I broke out my ink and stamps for the wood tag. 
I distressed the edges and then stamped "moms sack" on the front in brown ink.  I tied it on with some tea-stained seam binding. 
I also added the little bird tag which I've used on other projects.
For the back, I used some fabric glue to add my burlap pocket.  The finishing touch is the hand-stamped French clothes pin.

I think it makes a sweet little catch-all for my craft room!

What a great idea! I've gotten those little bags before and always wondered what to do with them. Now I know! Love the cute little birdie tag:)
