I got my dr dons machine off of ebay for 150.00, I get my parts from buttonmakers.net, the machine is so simple! You can whip out buttons super fast and the cost per a button is very inexpensive.

here is a picture of my store 1 inch buttons:

hey there button makers, I'm sorry if this was already mentioned, I haven't looked through all 17 pages. But, has anyone used their button machine to make fabric or felt covered buttons? I want to try this but don't want to ruin the maker. I've seen them around, I'm guessing you could just leave off the clear plastic part? any ideas?
thanks!

My friend bought a 1.25 inch press and used it to cover buttons with fabric and it works, sometimes there are a few snags, you have to use a thinner cotton fabric.
I have yet to try it with my 1 inch press.
(mental note, try to make fabric buttons tonight)

I've done a couple in depth tutorials on making fabric buttons here:

http://buttonmakers.blogspot.com/search/label/fabric%20buttons

In general it works fine as long as you're using thick, less stretchy fabric like canvas. If you have issues with tearing, you could try doubling the layers of fabric.

I got Don's machine, but the punch and badge parts from: http://buttonmakers.net/index.php i found it cheapest, good quality and shipping (although one time they didn't answer my email, maybe didn't get it).

Oh no! what was your email? maybe it was filtered out. (We get a lot of junk)

I want to start making fabric buttons/badges.  I am not sure which machine to buy.  Do I have to buy a "fabric button machine" or can I use a regular button machine?  If anyone can help me, I would really appreciate it!

Just a simple "badge machine": http://buttonmakers.net/index.php?cPath=58&sort=2a
and you can buy punch (if you are going to make lots of badges) or you can cut the circles with good scissors...very easy ans simple.
and this is the tutorial ButtonMakers gave: http://buttonmakers.blogspot.com/search/label/fabric%20buttons
Good Luck!

if you think it's going to be a little too thick, really pay attention when you put the plastic circle in. make sure it's sitting directly in the center. if you just drop it in, it's going to slide all the way up/down/left/right and then the opposite side will be the one that doesn't get fully covered.

forever and ever when i was using mine, i was doing it wrong. the little gold ring piece? for those of you that have that model- the black rubber ring around it should be closer to the top. not the bottom. haha.... every time i went ti disassemble the pieces, i really struggled because i put it together wrong. thought it was the machine... but it was just me.

yay! I'm glad I found someone who did this! I was worried the button models were different.

but yeah! this is what I was going to do.
