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.
