We can't remember the last time we so much as sewed a button on a shirt, so the idea of using a sewing machine is
pretty alien to us. But we still like the idea of Brother's Innovis series, which come with hundreds of built-in
patterns, including Disney and Sanrio characters and, more importantly, can work with both downloaded patterns and
digital photos to make custom designs. At last there's a way to get all of our digital pics onto t-shirts that doesn't
involve cheesy iron-on prints. Of course, the Innovis models start at about $1,000, but if that's the price of
unlimited creativity -- and the ability to get the buttons back onto our shirts -- we'll pay it.
