100 Free SVG Cut Files: DIY Cricut T-shirt design Ideas

You have a Cricut machine and now you want to start using it to make fun t-shirts, mugs and more. But…searching for free SVG files can feel like wild goose chase. There are so many free designs on Cricut Design Space…but what happens when you can’t find what you’re looking for? Or, what if you don’t have Cricut Design Space?

When I first got my Cricut Maker, all I wanted to do was to make my own designs and I started a new project almost on a daily basis. Now that I’ve had my machine for over 5 years, I’ve learned a thing or two and have started creating a new SVG file almost on a weekly basis. Let’s start by breaking it down:

100 SVG Cut Files for Cricut Maker, Cricut Joy, Silhouette Cameo and more!

I’ve decided to share the wealth! And…I’ve broken the SVG cut file ideas into categories so you can make your very own t-shirt design, tote bag, or water bottle. The possibilities are endless!

Teacher SVG Cut Files

Download 6 free teacher cut files including this retro “Teacher Mode” SVG File! Here’s your opportunity to show a teacher just how much you appreciate them. One fun idea would be to make something for your teacher to wear for the 100 days of school, or give him/her a back to school gift this fall! Educators work hard, so showing a little appreciation goes a long way. Trust, me, I’ve been teaching for 22 years and a little love is always appreciated.

So…what do you need to start making an actual physical item? Here are a few things I use when I am getting creative!

When it’s time to start making things with your electronic cutting machine, it is important that you have the right file. A png file, jpg files, eps file, pdf files and dxf files aren’t ideal for using these machines.

The good news is with some helpful tips and free SVG’s, you’ll go from a hot mess to a seasoned designer in no time. It is a huge help to know that with Silhouette designer edition and Cricut design space, you can simply upload your SVG, follow a cutting machine full tutorial and take the first step to getting crafty. Once you start making things, you will want to make something every single day!

So now you’ve got everything you need to have a great time making shirts. Use your cut image to make a DIY shirt or whatever makes you happy!
