Free "Mom Heart" SVG Cut File

Use this Free “Mom Heart” SVG Cut File to make something special for Mother's Day!

Free Mom Heart SVG Cut File

With Mother's Day coming up, I wanted to make something special for all of the moms out there. This design with the word "mom" inside of a heart is simple, but makes a statement about the love for a mother. Not only can you make a stunning Mother's Day shirt, but you can also use the design for home decor and so much more. I can't wait to see what you create with this design and your Cricut machine!

To make your own "Mom Heart" Mother's Day shirt, you'll need these supplies:


Mom Heart Free Cut File

Upload the "Mom Heart" cut file into Design Space and size the image to fit your shirt. Ungroup the design, and select different parts to change colors, if necessary.

Before cutting the iron-on vinyl, make sure to mirror your image! If you don't, your design will be backwards when you put it on the shirt. To do this, select the mat thumbnail in Design Space before cutting, and click the "Mirror" toggle to reverse the image.

*Here's a great tutorial on how to upload your own images into Cricut Design Space.

Lilac Cricut Explore Machine

For this shirt, I used HTV  and cut it with my Cricut Explore Air 2 machine. Place the vinyl face-down on the mat, and load it into the machine. Change the material settings to the type of vinyl you are cutting, and then click the "Go" button to cut the vinyl.

"Weed" the excess vinyl by removing all of the parts that don't belong in the design. I usually peel away the outer edges first (starting at the corner), and then work my way around the design. Then I use weeding tools to help remove the smaller pieces of the design.

Cricut EasyPress

Plug in the EasyPress 2 and power it on. Each kind of HTV has a different heat and time setting, so be sure to check the recommended EasyPress settings before getting started. Adjust the heat and time setting to your shirt and vinyl specifications. Once the light turns green and the machine beeps, it's ready to use.

When the EasyPress is up to temperature, place your shirt on the EasyPress Mat and preheat the area for 5-10 seconds. Lay the HTV down on the shirt, with the clear carrier sheet facing up. Set the EasyPress over the vinyl and press the green "C" button. Hold firmly in place while the timer counts down. Turn the shirt over and press the EasyPress firmly again for 15 seconds.

Peel off the carrier sheet while the vinyl is still warm. If you are layering vinyl, repeat the process for each of the different colors of vinyl, but be sure to protect the vinyl that is already on the shirt with an Iron-On Protective Sheet.
