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.
and Bouquet of Flowers.
and Sunbonnet Sue are a bit more challenging.
Michie Moonie's, Sandcastles is also a very simple design.
If you are up for a challenge, one of my favorite plates is Pansies by Claire Meldrum.
Or you could try this Butterfly plate from Sew Beautiful Magazine.
Finally, there is my own Blooming Rose.
