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! If you would like to listen rather than read, or would like to know which patterns I would use these plates with, check out my YouTube video on where I discuss these 12 designs.
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.
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!
