That's so cool! I'm inspired to do one now, except methinks I'm going to use my Napoleon Dynamite poster instead of dumdum wrappers. I don't think Napoleon would really like being cut up but we'll see what happens. I love the hot pink ducktape, I wish we had some here :-)
I didn't mean to make my post difficult to read, I went to subway in the middle of writting it. Then I came back and began writting again, then I stopped near the end to watch Jaws and then I finally posted my question. I never really used the machine before because I prefered hand sewing but when I opened it up to check the inside I got black oily stuff all over my fingers, which I'm assuming was oil? (I'm somewhat of a newbie when it comes to sewing machines) I guess I'll take it somewhere and see what they can do, I might just get a new machine.
I wish I would have looked at this topic sooner, I would have had the perfect project for you (but being that I only just joined) maybe you can use the idea for next year? You could sew spanish worry dolls, you could make candy skulls, and there are really elaborate tissue paper art hangings out there you could make all it takes is tissue paper and scissors. You could make non alcoholic wine that Spanish people drink on the holidays Check out 'day of the dead' on the internet and you'll be hit with a million ideas
