I ordered a machine for making pinbacks (like the buttons pictured above).
I’m so excited! I’ve been looking at them for probably two years. I wanted to get a good one and I didn’t want to spend the money, but my mom helped me out this time.
I’m thinking about starting an Etsy store if I can figure it out.
I like art, even if I kind of suck at it, but on a small scale I think it could be really fun.
It’s for 2 and 1/4” (58cm) buttons so I think that’s a good size.
I want to make mental health awareness pins (obviously), and I will probably end up with some pride stuff since everyone knows I love rainbows.
I don’t know exactly what else I will make, but I want to make stuff.
I could see myself recreating old campaign buttons too since I’m such a history nerd if there seemed to be an interest in that…
Anyway, I’m just excited.
It comes next week! I’ve been checking the tracking every few hours. I doubt it’s going to change. It weighs 38 pounds!!
It’s got all of the materials for starting too, which is helpful.
