Where to get SVG Files?
I love to get SVG files in Bundles and recently got the Crafters Delight Volume IV – so many cute options! I have plans to pick a kitchen one to put on an apron – they would also make awesome kitchen towels. And that zebra would look great on a tote bag. And the pilot and co-pilot for daddy and kiddo tees. So many options! PLUS, in addition to all those SVGS, do you the FONTS that it comes with?! I’m obsessed with “floaties” and “the overthinkers” – they’re SO good! I would get the whole bundle just for those fonts. Right now you ALL of this, a $282 value, for only $24 – such a good deal!!

Yep, I thought it would be easiest to just talk you through the project, so enjoy this how-to svg layer video, it’s only a couple minutes long. If you prefer reading instructions, that’s on down below too!
How to Cut SVG Layers in Silhouette
- Open your SVG and adjust it to the desired size. Mirror image if you’ll be cutting HTV.
- Click “send” to send to your Silhouette Machine.
- In the “send” panel, choose the “fill tab”.
- Check box next to the color of vinyl you want to cut (uncheck all others)
- Put that color of vinyl into your cutter and cut that layer.
- Uncheck that color and check the next color that needs cut and repeat.
How to Apply Layered SVG using Heat Transfer Vinyl HTV
- Cut all layers separately (see above).
- Weed out excess vinyl.
- Apply bottom layer of vinyl using iron or heat press (if you want more info on how to apply HTV, I have a video for that!). Peel off carrier sheet.
- Apply next layer of vinyl over the top of first layer. If there is HTV exposed, do not touch that section with your iron! You can reuse the carrier sheet to protect it if needed.
- Repeat until all layers are applied.
