Round-up of Free Smocking Plates for Girls

smocking plates for girls

One of my favorite blog posts is putting together a round-up of picture smocking ideas for you. So far, we have a Round-up of Free Smocking Plates for Boys, Free Smocking Plates for Babies and Free Smocking Plates for Christmas (just in case you want to get started early!) So of course, I need to do a Round-up of Free Smocking Plates for Girls! There are some lovely plates out there, from the very complicated to the simple if you are new to picture smocking, so let's see what I found!

First up is the adorable Strawberry Fields from Love and Stitches.

If you are new to picture smocking, an easier place to start would be the plates from My Treasured Heirlooms. The site is no longer there, but you can smock the design by just looking at the pictures. These include a Cupcake,

and Bouquet of Flowers.
