Over the years I have done several round-up posts of free smocking plates. There has been Smocking Plates for Boys, Smocking Plates for Girls, Smocking Plates for Christmas and Smocking Plates for Babies! But all of those round-up posts have focused on free picture smocking designs. In the Smocking Basics Series, I recommended that you start with a geometric smocking plate for your first smocked project, so it seemed only natural to put together a round-up post of Free Geometric Smocking Plates! I haven't rushed to do this post because I didn't think I was going to find much, but I was pleasantly surprised! So, let's see what I found! First up, Kathy Dykstra has two different smocking plates available that she designed for her smocked knit nightgowns. You will find both as part of the same post.
This design is from the 1940s.
This design she re-created from the book Simplified Smocking.
And finally, this is a free design of her own.
and the second is Pink Carnations.
and First Christmas.
I hope you get a chance to give one of these smocking plates a try and if you would like to see my latest find, follow my Smocking Pinterest Board!
