FREE SVG for DIY If You Can Read This Socks!

Make some of those cute If You Can Read This Socks with four free SVG cut files and a step by step tutorial.

Finding the perfect gift for someone can be time-consuming and downright hard.  Spending hours scrolling through Amazon or playing bumper carts through Target is stressful during the holiday season.  I have an easy fix for all that!

Make them a gift. It’s that simple. People love handmade gifts and they are so much easier on your wallet.

I know what you’re thinking… “But I’m not creative.”  Well, in this day and age, you don’t actually need to be creative, you just need Pinterest!

I’m not even going to make you spend mindless hours on Pinterest, I’m just going to give you some FREE SVG files and show you how to make those cute If You Can Read This Socks.

Materials Needed for If You Can Read This Socks

How To Apply Vinyl to Socks

First, you’ll need to design your saying in Cricut Design Space.  Or if you’d like to use my files, download them below. (The funny sock quote SVG files will be at the bottom of the post!)

Download the SVG file, and then upload it to CDS.  Watch this Cricut video tutorial if you need additional help with this step.

Place HTV shiny side down on a cutting mat and cut your design on the mirror setting.  Weed off the extra vinyl.  (Watch this cutting and weeding video tutorial for additional tips)

I love my heat press and use it all the time ( you can find out more information about how to use a heat press here). 

If you don’t have a heat press you can use an iron or an EasyPress 2.  Follow the directions of your iron-on vinyl for what temperature to use.

Preheat a heat press to 280F.  Make sure the bottom of the socks are flat and lay them on the pad.  Press the socks for 10 seconds to get the moisture out.

Center the iron-on vinyl in between the toes and heel of the socks.

Press for 20 seconds.  Remove plastic backing.

I like to put a Teflon sheet over the HTV and press them again for 20 seconds.  That’s it.  So cute!

Hi Charlene! It should still download. Sometimes it says there is a problem viewing it, but there should still be a blue download button. I just tried it and it worked but I did get the Viewing error message. The blue download button was below that. Hope that works for you! If not, let me know!
