Welcome November! Have you started your Holiday Smocking? I know, I know, Halloween is just behind us, and I am talking about Christmas. But little ones in picture smocked outfits for Christmas are so adorable. If you are going to get them finished in time, you need to start now, if you haven’t already! To help get those inspiration juices flowing, I have gathered together a number of free Christmas smocking plates all in one place. Happy Smocking!
First up, is this adorable Three Kittens who lost their Mittens by Claire Meldrum. Claire offers two versions of this plate - one with Fairisle Mittens and one with solid mittens. Depending on the fabric you choose, this plate doesn't have to be limited to Christmas. For a classic Christmas plate, there is Santa and his Reindeer from the Sew Beautiful blog.
You have to scroll down the page to find Santa and Rudolph, but I promise, they are both there! What would Christmas be without Gingerbread Cookies? Thanks to Janet Gilbert, you don't have to find out.
Janet also has published Baby's First Christmas. This design could still be worn for Valentine's Day just six weeks later.
If you are looking for a Christmas Tree, you can use the tree from Gingerbread Cookies above, or this one from Trudy Horne.
Make this wonderful Snowman design, from Martha Pullen, and your little one can wear it all winter long!
And finally, again from Claire Meldrum, we have the classic Nutcracker!
