Default Re: Can i applique with a reg. sewing machine?

I use a zig zag stitch at a width of 2-3, depending on what I'm sewing. And a length of almost zero. I know that isn't much help, but I turn my dial to zero then back a little bit...
I use heat n bond light on my appliques, then adhere it to the shirt. When sewing I use a thick tear away interfacing backing. I would suggest practicing first, it takes a little practice to be able to do all the curves and everything. I do little brother and sister shirts this way as well...and I can sew one of those in a few mins, I'm just used to it :P
Thanks for all the compliments :P

Those are so adorable!!! I think I may try but I have a feeling that this may be one of those things that I should just purchase.

I saw this outfit on another post. My question is, can i get the 'green' stitch on my regular sewing machine?

Yeah if you use green thread you will be able to sew it as a green stitch.

Share the complete project when you are done. if you need more assistance then i will provide you my project details for your help.
