I am looking for a Pinochio related design, not sure if it is licensed, thanks


by jofrog2000 28 Sep 2014 (owned by Brother) has a few of them, but you need a Brother machine to sew them. A list of usable machines is onsite and you have to tell them which one you have, as I assume they make it so that only that machine can use it. They also have added some Frozen, Ninja Turtles,some cartoon series. If you have the right machine , it's good to go.

many thanks Jo for replying. On numerous occasions I have tried to buy designs from ibroidery but they will not let me and will not let me know the reason, from what I have been told they do not sell to Australia. I own a Brother NV1500D.

So sorry. Maybe the fact that some other countries feel they don't have to adhere to US copyright, makes them keep the designs closer to their control?

No offence and sorry to disagree Disney is great
but they can only licen their own characters.

The children's novel of Pinocchio (1883), written by the Italian writer Carlo Collodi inspired many artists. Perhaps you can find a design that is not based on the Disney layout. Good luck!

hard for a non native speaker, trying to say keep on the save side

If you search for Pinocchio all kinds of pic come up, even a pinocchio tilda doll, and vintage wood work and many childen book ilustrations, so there is more than the Disney version. Found an e.g. a broom, any broom design, could be related to Harry Potter but not all broom designs are licended by Disney.

Oh, O.K. That's what I thought, but I didn't want to get it wrong. You do very well for an non-native speaker. Just be careful, you can digitize or draw a cricket, but if it resembles Jiminy's Disney's. Also for a wooden boy. By drawing one that doesn't resemble Pinocchio you are fine, but if someone looks at it and says hey, that looks like Pinocchio you have broken copyright laws.
Your broom illustration is perfect. Thanks for clarifying! Hugs!

Pinocchio is a Disney character and I am sure most definitely licensed. Marg
