Default I need help buying a sewing machine...please

Is there a special machine that does this?
http://hipgirlclips.com/forums/hairb...en-outfit.html
*YOUR WORK IS AWESOME*

I absolutely love these ?appliques? but I have no idea where to even start.

Are there any machine you ladies would recommend?
I already have a Juno serger and a Brother Disney Embroidery machine, but my regular machine gave out I hate to part with it because it is one of the first presents my DH ever gave me but I hate spending money to get it fixed when it originally cost around $100.

Thanks in advance

I absolutely love the older type sewing machines with metal casings. I personally have a Kenmore and would not trade it for a new type machine. You could check out ebay for some good used ones.

You should be able to do something like that with your embroidery machine. You would need an editing program and the applique files for your machine.

I don't think you need a special machine, . I do appliques like that all the time with my regular sewing machine ( it's a Brother Pacesetter NX200) using a zigzag stitch set close together making it what people call a satin stitch. I don't know anything about embroidery machines and don't own a serger.

You don't need a special machine. I applique ALL the timm and refuse to buy and embroidery machine Just set your machine to a tight zig-zag or a satin stitch and adjust the width and you can applique - it does take pracetice though. I think the OP of that tee mentioned how hard of a time the S's gave her so she probably used a regular machine too (a opposed to an embriodery machine)

Thanks so much! Do you iron on the applique first?
