Hi everyone,

I'm making a qipao/cheongsam and I want it to have simple, 'strip'-like frogs (like these blue ones).

Does anyone know how to make these? All the tutorials I've seen are for the three-lobed style of frogs. Are these just pieces of tubing that are doubled with folded under edges? Thanks in advance for any reply!

Thanks for asking; I think I'll be using this video instruction that I found as a result of your question. Hope it helps.

I have no idea what Apple thought I was saying so be a Peach and credit anything bizarre to auto correct.

Very cool! I'm going to have to try this sometime!

Glad this question was asked and answer found!

Wow a7yrstitch, great video! Seeing it done with big cording makes it so much clearer. Thanks for sharing :)
