Here's what we need for the project:
A Green Army Jacket
A Patch of your Choice
A Bag of Snap Buttons
A Roll of Silver Pennies
A Mercury Dime
An Afghanistan Coin
A Soviet Union Coin
A German Coin
A Confederate Coin (restrike)
Surprisingly, all of these coins are very affordable online, as is everything else.
Step 1: Sewing the Snap Buttons
Next, you will need some green yarn/string and a sewing needle. Carefully keep track of where the buttons were on the jacket! For each spot you removed a button, sew on the female side of the push button. We will need the other half later.
The reason for this is that many coins cannot be washed in the washing machine because of corrosion or rust - not to mention the possibility that they will come off as the water comes into contact with glue. Metal is easier to adhere to metal anyways.
Step 2: Glue the Other End of the Snap Buttons onto the Coins
Allow plenty of time for the glue to settle to ensure a durable bond.
