A Taste of Honiton eBook: Honiton Bobbin Lace Flower Motif to Make
Honiton Bobbin Lace Flower Motif to Make
Honiton lace originated in Devonshire, England, in the sixteenth century, but it did not become a noncontinuous floral lace until the seventeenth century. Over time, it evolved further with changing grounds between the lace motifs and variations in design.
Today, it is recognized as one of England’s loveliest laces. The motifs of Honiton lace are made first and then joined together by a bobbin- or needle-made mesh or brides (guipure) or appliquéd to machine-made net. Typical motifs include roses, thistles, leaves, birds, bees, and butterflies.
This project is a small motif with a flower, leaf, and scrolled rib. Included in this eBook:
