Embroidered Images

Hi all!

I have seen some stunning DCL items that include an adorable cruise ship with Mickey smoke. I am NOT very good with a sewing machine but someone who might be willing to do some embroidery for me. How/where do I get (or maybe the question is..can I get?) that image for her to use. I have googled and searched on here for several phrases, but either I am not wording it right or it isn't out there.

Please let me know! I am calling her tomorrow to try to figure out family shirts and also FE gifts and some gifts for my kids.

Thanks!
Colleen

The embroidery files for DCL can be found by googling frou frou by heather sue. This is where the DCL cruise ship with Mickey smoke for an embroidery machine can be found.

Took me forever to find her site but her stuff sews out great.

One might want to consider copyright laws in any situation that involves financial transactions.

Thanks! That picture cool, but that isn't the one. It isn't a photo, it is an embroidered image.

I will google for that other one and see what I get! Thanks!

Brother embroidery machines come with built in Disney designs--the size and variety depends on the machine. Anyone with digitizing software and some experience in using it can digitize a design, but doing this well requires some skill and practice. I learned digitizing by doing Disney characters for my daughter! Coloring book pictures made great images. Of course many years later, I laugh at those early attempts.

There are people on line who sell design files of "near Disney" designs. The ones I've seen have been altered, presumably to avoid copyright issues (a DCL logo with 2 waves instead of 3, for instance). I'm not a lawyer and can't speak to where the line is drawn on these issues.

I do know that I can stitch out a design that I have purchased from a legit company and GIVE it to you. I can do this any number of times. However, I cannot do the stitch out and SELL it to you without violating the designer's rights. This is made clear in the documentation that comes with most designs.

Visit Etsy or the Disboutiquers thread on the Family board. I won't get into the legal discussions over copyright, but there are women & men that do sell that design on a t-shirt and available as a file.

I have seen the design on Etsy. Search under "embroidery cruise ship" and you will find it along with others that you can purchase to use on a sewing machine compatible with downloading designs and doing embroidery.
