Hi Joseph, I have thought about this, especially incorporating overshot patterns. As others have said, you would have to consider the fact that bobbin lace is worked as two weft rows at a time. I envisioned doing a drawdown to plot the pattern rows to follow (which would be woven with a single bobbin), and since each overshot pattern row is followed by a tabby (plain weave) row, you could weave one bobbin across after each pattern row. (Every alternate row would be woven with the other bobbin of the weaver pair.) Alternatively, you could experiment weaving a regular cloth stitch row (i.e. with both bobbins) after each pattern row. It would look different but it could be interesting!
I recently saw some loom weaving where cards (as for tablet/card weaving) were added at the edges...another interesting combination of techniques. I guess we’re only limited by our imaginations!
