Default applique on pant legs?

Is there an easy way (or any way) to do this with my machine? I have someone who wants the same design on a shirt & on one pant leg. I've done just stitch around a design using my sewing machine on pants legsby putting it over the arm but I don't know how I'll get enough "flat" area to do it with the embroidery machine.

TYIA!!!

I don't applique but from what I understand some people actually take the pants apart.

Here's a link for you

Thank you!! When I googled info about doing it that seems to be what's suggested. I was just hoping there was a way to do it without taking the pants apart - but I don't think there is.

Yep take the inseam apart. Easy to do and then you have a nice flat surface to work on. When you are done just sew it up and run it through the serger....good as new!

Unfortunately a bigger and better machine isn't going to eliminate taking the seam out! LOL
You just gotta do it! LOL
