Button machine and accessoires

Always wanted to know how to make an upholstered button? Well then the playlist below on our youtube channel answers that question. You need various molds and buttont parts. If you do not have the right die with the correct button part, then you run the risk, for example, that your artificial leather is cut through at the bottom. Do you have very thin fabric and the button parts come loose? Then it can help to put an extra piece of cotton underneath. Is your leather very thick and does it not fit in the mold? Then skiving is an option (you remove a layer from the back of the leather) Or try spraying silicone spray in your mold.
