Tecre Model #225 2-1/4" Fabric Button Maker Machine
This listing is for a Tecre 2-1/4" button maker machine that has been adjusted by Tecre to allow for use with fabric. (That is why the price is higher than the basic model).
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 also use this machine for making normal paper buttons.
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.

This is NOT a BAM (Badge-A-Minit) size machine and BAM sized parts will NOT work on this machine. Chinese made parts will not work on this machine.
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 2.25") 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).
