This frog closure is very easy to do but it can still enhance your bag quite a bit.
It will look beautiful on a large tote but also will look super cute on a child's jacket.
Worsted weight yarn of your choice
Crochet hook size H
Pinning cardboard or pillow
Blunt needle and yarn of matching color to sew frog together and to project
First, you need to make an I-cord rope that is 15 1/2" long.

To form the frog proceed as follows:
Match the ends of your rope.
Cross end of rope over itself, right to left, to form loop that will act as a buttonhole. Pin in place.
Cross again in the same direction.
Pass the rope over itself to form a loop, pin in place. Repeat on opposite side.
Curl the ends of the rope to form the top of the wings of the butterfly. Pin into place.
Thread a blunt needle with yarn and begin to sew butterfly together (do not pull all the pins off at once but do it little by little, securing the shape of the butterly as you go.)
Fasten off securely at back so that your frog closure will withstand use.
Sew onto your project.
Sew button opposite buttonhole loop.
