Yes, ok, that's fine......but, really ...you can do it, it is true, but ...would you really go out to the street using that button?, not I.
Would you do it if it were a gold coin? :D
Even less !! :)
This is pretty cool man! I've got a couple old pair of pants that would and will benefit from that tutorial. Thanks!
Thanks deluges! I am glad to hear that you got an idea from this Instructable :)
I've replaced buttons with pennies myself. But I drilled holes in the pennies like buttons have and sewed them on. I guess that is the work way? I can't even buy a piece of bubble gum for a penny today so I figure making a button out of one is pretty good value for the money these days.
Yes, I hear you pfred2! A penny doesn't get you no where these days. But they do fine jobs as buttons! :)
