Original Bobbin Lace Patterns
by Irene Tomlinson
Torchon Edgings with Corners
All the patterns are my own design.
These edgings are suitable for handkerchiefs and edged mats.
A straight length and a corner (not a full square) are given for each pricking. I feel that when a full square is given, it restricts the lacemaker to that size of square and it is not always a suitable size for the end use. By cutting and joining the pricking you can control the finished size of the lace and therefore the pricking is far more versatile.
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.
