For the ribbon I use my sewing machine, but to make add the applique or embroidery you need an embroidery machine. I have a babylocke and I love mine. It has a high price tag but its amazing what it can do! Any way for the ribbon I use sewable iron on and place the ribbon with an iron then sew down both sides for added stability. Just don't stretch while you sew cause it will ruffle. They are pretty easy.

The shirt shown is made using both an embroidery and sewing machines. The name is done with an embroidery machine and an embroidery machine plsu everything you need is a large investment.
For simple ribbon shirts and simple appliques, you can use a sewing machine.
I use my embroidery machine for appliques but started off using a basic sewing machine. I have attached an applique that I make with my embroidery machine but you can use a sewing machine for tie onesies, letter or number appliques, etc.

Thank you for the information. Another question

If I buy an applique like a mickey mouse head do i just attach it with a sewing machine or do I need an embroidery machine for that?

And what all do I need a serger for?

You ladies are wonderful, thank you for the help.
