I really want to do some seriously cute character shirts for my girls, but am too cheap to pay $38 for a single shirt.  How are these crafty people making the characters into applique designs?  Do you have to have digitizing software?  I have a Brother 1500 innovis, so I know I can use it to do the applique itself.  How the heck are they doing that?Huh?
Thanks!

yep you need the software or someone who can do it for you, but they often charge and if it is a licenced design then most people won't touch it.

hdbreaux...

what characters are you referring to? Is it Disney or something like that?

If you have some sewing savy you may be able to duplicate it. If it's a trademarked design you can make all you want for yourself and your kids you just can't make money from them.

Give me more info, maybe I can help.
I love applique and it's pretty easy. I have recently learned some techniques that really help finish the edges more cleanly and make the applique more secure. I'm happy to share...

I have a Brother 250D. That was the Disney machine that came out a few years ago. I have Disney characters programmed into my machine. Sometimes you can buy card packages that have licensed characters on them. They can be a bit pricey but you won't have to go through all the copyright hassle since they are already properly licensed.

I was forewarned and I have seen it with my own eyes a lot of digitizers are ferocious when it comes to copyright designs. They will burn you at the stake.

Do you own a Cricut? Some of the girl's are buying the Cricut Disney cartridges and making applique designs that way and using them in conjunction with their embroidery machines. You can do this without copyright infringement because again you own the cartridge. I checked with ProvoCraft. I didn't want to be tarred and feathered. Smiley

I hope that helps. I hate that I have to keep saying copyright, copyright, copyright like I am a copyright police officer, lol. I just don't want to see you get yelled at. Those ladies can be seriously catty.
