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.
