Default Can i applique with a reg. sewing machine?

I really want to try making some super cute kids clothes, but I don't have a serger or embroidery machine...just a plain jane sewing machine. LOL

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

some machines have a satin stitch setting, some don't. or you can always use a zig-zag...

I was going to say that too if you dont have that stitch you can use a tight zig zag if you can sew pretty straight , i tried and i cannot lol
