Inkscape to Cricut Design Space Tutorial

Hi Friends!  As promised, I made another video tutorial on how to convert a png to a layered svg file to use like I did when making my DIY Disney shirts (click here to check out tutorial).  I used this method for creating Mary Poppins, Pumba, and the Animal layered images.  Check out my video tutorial below on my easy Inkscape to Cricut Design Space Tutorial.  Inkscape is a free downloadable software and it is a great tool for creating svgs.  You can read all about it on the Inkscape website here.

Here are the DIY Disney shirts I used with this method!

    Hi Amy – sorry to impose on your time but I’m hoping you can answer a quick question regarding your tutorial. I watched the truck tutorial and noticed that you left a large black and large green area for cutting. I realize that you used the black to overlay the green and the green was not cutout where the black overlaid it. So does this mean that the black ‘vinyl’ is going to overlay the green vinyl on all that hidden (green) area? Is this the best way to make the layers? I was thinking of having all the colors stand on their own and not stack the vinyl. Does it matter which way? I’m just wanting to know the best way to make my SVG multi color graphics.

    Thank you!!

  2. Hi Doug, there are definitely different ways to do it and I think a lot of it is personal preference. A lot of the files in CDS have the stackable parts. You definitely can slice more so that you are not overlaying anything. If you are using adhesive vinyl, it will get a bit thicker with the stacked parts. For iron-on vinyl, it doesn’t add much thickness but the first layer can shrink a little bit after the heat is added which makes the second slightly larger when adding it on. I personally like as much as possible sliced out so I don’t use as much vinyl. You should try it both ways and see which one you prefer, sometimes one way is easier for some than others!
