|Description: A cardboard lace making pattern covered with paper and ink drawn pattern. Paper sewn to the pricked cardboard. |
Bobbin lace (or pillow lace) takes its name from the way it is made: on a firm pillow to which a pricked-out pattern is tacked and each twist of the bobbins is held in place by a pin. For all its intricate and elegant appearance, there are only two different movements of bobbins in the formation of the lace: the twist and the cross.
