A simple question posed over on the book of faces last night, caused a small flurry.
refer to picture:
The questions was: What are those little vinyl bits called?
There we entered the hook/ loop , loop/toggle, frog debate.
I was opting for saying "Sew the vinyl doo-dad over the end of your cord to cover up the mess" but that's a bit unprofessional.
The debate ran hot but I think most agreed that the wooden bits are the toggles and the cordy bits are the loops. The vinyl bits could be called tabs. The frogs confused me.
The snarkily emailed suggestion that I have no place writing sewing patterns if I don't have a grasp of technical terminology briefly played into one of those deep dark "You are a fraud" kind of fears.
My two-word email response was also unprofessional.
