    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! :)
