You’ve bought the Cricut machine (which was a large investment and now you need some free SVG cut files.
It’s time to put that noisy little bug to work. And you would like to practice on something that isn’t going to cost you a lot of money.
Eventually, you will either start investing in more complex SVG cut files or you will start designing your own. But until then, you need a good source for free SVG cut files.
The following list is going to be a little overwhelming (because it’s BIG).
My suggestion would be to bookmark this page and return as needed (Pin it, save it in your notes, whatever works best for you!).
A HUGE list of Free SVG Cut Files
Note: Some of the sites have files that you can access once you sign up for their email newsletter or resource library. Other’s just have them linked in specific posts. There might be some digging involved.
I have gone through this entire list and looked at each and every site. If their SVG files were too hard to locate they didn’t make the list.
The internet changes quickly, if you happen to find a broken link, please let me know and I will fix it or remove the site from the list!
