Great badge reel! Really like that it's fabric
My Busy Buttons, 5 years in a short story
My Busy Buttons began in 2010, after my daughter encouraged me to make a few badge reels for her and a few nursing friends. She came home that day, with orders for more, and the orders and special requests kept coming.
I was unemployed at the time, so I jumped in and never looked back. I was scouring every fabric and quilt store I could find for small scraps of fabric. Everyone wanted something different, and it was fun to see how they turned out.
I opened this Etsy shop in 2011, and have enjoy creating new and exciting designs. As each holiday rolls around, I look for different fabric for new badge reels to keep my inventory fresh. I choose my fabric carefully with the perfect design in mind in the hopes that my shop stays successful.
The process of making a badge reel takes a few days. All of the fabric-covered buttons are assembled by hand. I am the only one who makes the buttons, that way I can control the design of each one.
My husband, Mark glues the fabric-covered button to the plastic badge reel and never complains. He uses industrial strength glue and they take 48 hours to dry.
That means every badge reel listed in my shop is made and ready to ship when payment is received.
Thank you for listening to my story, I hope you’ll look around in my shop and find something you love and get that 'Have to have it' feeling!
Owner, Designer, Creator
I have some Art and Design training which helps me create badge reels you will love! I was a decorative painting teacher for over 15 years, and I still do painting, mostly gifts for family and friends. It's a great stress reliever too!
My husband Mark is the 'glue master' for all of my badge reels. He somehow manages to keep the glue off the fabric and does a great job. I couldn't make as many badge reels as I do without his help.
