Stoppers from the two bottles of wine that must be drunk to figure this out?

Cord Stoppers (Locks)?

Really reaching - two zipper stops for double ended zipper?????

Let us know what you are making, pattern number or description, and we'll be able to do a better job of helping.

Vogue 1224 calls for stoppers for the drawstrings; from the photo it looks like those small brass bell-shaped things that cover the knots.
