and get rid of any wrapping and evidence of candy consumed!
Paint the fabric with watered down paint
(I chose simple circles and used the prettiest pinks and reds out there from Claudine Hellmuth's Studio paint!)
Place the fabric on top of a piece of batting (used for quilting) and doodle with your sewing machine.

Last, I embellished the edges with a row of little white dots of fabric paint.
I filled the box with all my needles,
