A Lil' Lace and Glue...Viola

I've been looking for a peg bag for my clothespins that matches my style...but to no avail. So, the other day I was shopping at our local "everything" store, and came across this plain cotton peg bag {for only $2.50}....and then the light bulb hit me....why not decorate my own bag.
I got out some old lace, velvet ribbon and fabric glue {no sewing skills here} and got busy!

And this is what I came up with.

I just love it....now I can hang my sheets in style.
