Thanks, Shelby!

YES! I sell MACHINES THAT MAKE COVERED BUTTONS!

I made and sold buttons LONG before we started selling the equipment - I love this stuff! We stand behind everything we sell 100%. My girls have made buttons on our home machine since they were little, mostly as gifts for their friends, and I personally guarantee that our equipment will not strain your fingers.

I don't know anything about buttons made with badge machines, but I can answer just about any other cover button-related question.

A very thin layer of iron-on interfacing on the back of the fabric will fix that. Some people use a paint pen on the button shell (front), but I'm waaaay too lazy for that.

The machine is great that is the one I have from American Buttons, however it is expensive like $500... That is why I sell my monogrammed buttons wholesale for $2. Equipment isn't cheap.
good luck

Dede, how user-friendly/idiot-proof would you say your machine is? I'm interested, but I have this tendency to buy new tools only to never use them because I'm too overwhelmed to figure out the directions...
