Are you ready for a St Patricks Day “Paddy”? Y’all, I’m pretty sure that this years party will have to be rescheduled, but I am so ready for some Irish music, green beer and pinching everyone who dares not wear green lol.
If you’re a little St Patricks Day cray cray like me, then this design is for you. If you have a little one who will be going to school on this day or perhaps has a birthday on this day, then today’s free SVG design is one that you will absolutely love.
Though I decided to go with two different colors for this design, just know that YOU DO NOT have to stick with this. You can absolutely use a single color of iron-on.
Changing the colors of designs is actually a really simple thing to do. It will actually make cutting and finishing your products way quicker if you choose to go with solid colors.
To change out colors, simply make sure that you are always uploading the SVG file type to your design software, such as Cricut Design Space or Silhouette Studio. Once you’ve uploaded the SVG file, you will always want to “right click” and then “ungroup”. Doing this will separate the different colors and elements for you.
Once you’ve done this, the next step is to select the entire design and “weld” it together. This will basically make it so that your design will all become one solid color and it will be cut as a single cut as well. Meaning, you won’t need to place elements in their place, they will all cut in their exact positions and all you’ll have to do is align it and press it.
Two quick tips that I would give you about welding designs to make them all one solid color, is to make sure that:
1. The design does not have overlapping elements, meaning that the words and drawings aren’t touching each other necessarily. This makes it so that things don’t end up looking like “blobs” when you cut them out.
2. Ensure that the design will look good in one solid color by examining the elements. For example, I have a design that has the face of crab, and the eyes are black and the crab is green. Well if I welded this design to all cut out in either black, white or green, you can imagine how this could make that character not look right.
QUICK NOTE: You can use this design for personal and commercial use. If you’d like to share it with your friends (I’d LOVE THIS!), I do ask that you just link them to this post and help support my website. Also, please don’t upload it to a print on demand (POD) website, or send it for mass production.
Thank you so much for your support, and if you make anything with this design, tag me @PerfectStylishCuts, I love seeing your makes.
