...Oh... and we figured out a much easier way of making pony-o's than is shown in the tutorial. It involves flat backs and zip ties...

Very nice; whose creativity spawned that idea?

I can't take credit for the zip tie idea, although I'm not sure exactly how she used them.

I seem to remember when I was really, really young (I'm pushing 63) my mom had a machine like this..she was obviously doing SAHM work for someone. I looked at your site & if you figure out how to also corner the button/badge market, judging by the prices, it appears as if your company would stand the major share of purchases.

Not sure why I was looking at button making sites tonight, but I was..the joy of the internet, I never know where my travels will take me, hehe.

Nana (if I may call you that... ), I can make a pretty close approximation of a badge button, but haven't been brave enough to send it to someone for an evaluation.

So... since I've already hijacked this thread... would anyone be interested in looking at one of these wanna-be badge buttons?

Why, yes you may. Even though I became a very young great-grandmother at 53 (I'm passing a gene where the females start early, hehe) somehow Grandma just doesn't fit me

I'd love to help you out, I pm'd my info to you!

Is there a new thread I can see photos? I've been stalking these button machines and would totally make my decision if I could do both the fabric buttons plus the badge buttons...

Thanks!
