A Round-up of Free Geometric Smocking Plates

Updated: Jan 22

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!

Over at Gathering Threads, Claire Meldrum has several vintage designs posted as well as a few that she has designed. This is from the 1930s.

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.

Martha Pullen has two different geometric smocking designs available. The first is known as the Prince William Suit,

and the second is Pink Carnations.

Michie Moony has three free geometric smocking plates available. You need to scroll down to the bottom of the page, but they are there! First is this plate she designed for a bonnet.

The second graph is this one designed for a bishop.

Finally, there is this lovely design entitled Snowflakes.

From Janet Gilbert, there is Baby Charlotte,

and First Christmas.

Finally, there are several free smocking designs from Pink Hollybush! There is Findley.

Three free patterns for Wee Care.

And last but not least, Daisy!

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!
