Bobbin lace involves the use of hundreds of bobbins. Each bobbin is wound with a single thread that is tied and woven into lace. To make it, a paper pattern is pricked with pins, creating a structure around which the threads are tied. This handkerchief has a linen centre with tonder lace, a form of bobbin lace, around the edge. The motif is called the Little Heart of Denmark. The lace has been attached to the fabric using a Danish stitch called nonnehulsǿm.
