Original Bobbin Lace Patterns
by Irene Tomlinson
Bucks Point Hexagonal Edgings
All the edgings are my own design.
These edgings make very attractive mats or table centres and when mounted make very acceptable gifts.
They are worked in a similar way to the hexagonal motifs - this means that each side ( one-sixth of the whole design) is worked and then the pillow is turned before working the next section.
The corners are much easier to work than a right-angled corner in Bucks Point.
Each pricking is accompanied by a picture of the completed lace, a working diagram and details of the number of bobbins required and the thread used to work the sample.
This list of the designs gives details of size, cost of pattern and a small picture of the lace. To see a larger picture of each piece, click on the small picture.
Large Hexagonal Mats
Small Hexagonal Mats
The pricking for the Small Hexagonal Edging No. 1 has a short straight length of pricking so that the size can be altered to a larger hexagon or two opposite sides can be made longer to make an elongated hexagon.
