Round-Up of Free Smocking Plates for Boys

I'll admit that smocking for boys can be more difficult than for little girls, and your window of opportunity is limited, but that is all the more reason to smock for your little boy while you can! My round-up of Free Christmas Smocking Plates has been so popular, that I thought we needed another. Today, I have a round-up of free smocking plates to get you inspired to pick up your needle and thread and get smocking!

First up, a few of my favorites from Clarie Meldrum of Gathering Threads: there is Pirate Adventures and On the Farm. I love the detail Claire puts in her plates.

Pirate Adventures;

On the Farm:

Perhaps your little guy prefers creepy crawlies, in which case Gavin's Gekkos by Tess Ellenwood, may be more his speed.

Maybe he prefers Ants at a picnic:

If sports are more his interest, Janet Gilbert has designed two baseball smocking plates. One is sure to please. (click on the picture to be taken to the pattern).

Of course what little boys doesn't love cars, and trucks! Martha Pullen has this free Cars Plate, and Janet Gilbert has a Traffic Signal (once you click, scroll down for plate).

And of course, there is Little Hippo from Pink Hollybush Designs!

Happy Smocking, and if you haven't signed up the monthly newsletter, sign up now and receive the free Daisy Smocking Plate!
