Default covered bottons??

I have made a few bows with covered buttons (a botton metal I think that is covered in fabric). I really like the way they look and would love to start making them. How would I get started doing this and where would I find the supplies to make them?

There is a member on here named Dede who sells the button-making machines. She is a very active and helpful HG who will probably pop in on this thread to comment. I just wanted to let you know she is very helpful and knowledgeable when it comes to the button industry.

I just started dabbling in this area! I like the way the covered buttons look and the fact that use don't have to use sticky chemicles to finish it!
I don't want to invest in a button maker just yet, so I am doing them by hand.
Good luck!

The ones that are covered in fabric, you don't need a machine for those. If you're just wanting to try a few you can buy a pack of the buttons at most craft stores and it comes with the tool you use to cover them.

Absolutely! You're limited to using quilt-weight fabrics, and two kinds of backs (wire-eye and flat), but they are an excellent way to start using covered buttons. And EVERYONE should use covered buttons.

NOTE: I am in the process of overhauling our (extremely outdated and cringe-worthy) website, so please know we carry a LOT more than is listed. Thanks!

I closed a Gb for these yesterday we are getting sizes 45 and 60.
You can go get a look at the info and since I am still waiting for two more payments you can still place an order if you send me a PM.
Prices are super great!!!
