This lace is all hand stitched. After tacking around the line of the design you work with the two white threads, you lay the Crochet Cotton along the line of the design and using the sewing thread you couch over the crochet cotton catching the net and organdy as you sew. The loop edge is achieved by twisting the crochet cotton and securing it with couching stitches making sure all loops are of the same size. The tacking is then taken out which leaves the organdy and net sewn together. Using a scissors you trim away the excess organdy from around the design. Then you add the 'pops' which is done by circling one of the holes of the net in buttonhole stitch.
