FABRIC & PAPER Button Making Kit 1.5" - Machine, Fixed Rotary Circle Cutter, 500 Pin Back Parts
This versatile machine works perfectly with paper, but has the added bonus of being able to make fabric buttons as well.
This kit includes
- 1.5” Tecre Button Maker Machine Model #150
- Button Boy Fixed Rotary Circle Cutter for 1.5” Buttons – cut size 1.837”
- 1.5” complete PIN BACK button parts (shells, pinbacks, mylar) – enough parts to make 500 complete PIN BACK buttons.
The wait is finally over - we now have button making machines designed specifically for fabric!
This machine will work with basic cotton fabric, as well as some slightly thicker fabric like canvas or flannel. Thicker fabrics probably won't work with it.
If you plan on using a thick fabric, and want us to test the fabric out on our in-store machine, you can mail us 1 sq ft (or so) of fabric to test.
You can make your fabric buttons with or without the mylar, but we think most people make them without the mylar.
What could you make with a fabric button? Pony tail holders, badge holder buttons, magnets, flair buttons, thumb tacks, etc.
This is a brand new machine and it is ready to be shipped. Your machine will come with a factory warranty.

The 1.55” size is one of our most popular sizes of buttons. You can make buttons, magnets, versabacks (zipper pulls), key chains, pony tail holders, hair bow buttons and shoelace/lanyard buttons.
Depending on the fabric you are using, you may be able to see a little bit of the silver color from the button. If you place a thin piece of paper (cut to 1") on top of the button, it will help with this, and may also make your fabric button feel sturdier. You can also line your fabric.
We have also used fabric with the iron on backing with paper. After cutting the fabric, we just peeled off the paper and made the button.
We do give you a metal plate when you purchase a rotary cutter from us, but if you use a self healing cutting mat when cutting fabric, it will be more gentle on your fabric edges, and you will have less issues when making your buttons. (Sometimes the process of cutting the fabric may stretch it out a little bit, and you end up with a little 'tail' sticking out of the edge of the completed button. If that happens, you can just take some small scissors and cut that part of the fabric off).
Orders placed on holidays or weekends will be shipped the next business day.
Feel free to contact us with any questions - we love to help you get started making buttons and extra income!
