Free "Be Kind" SVG Cut File

Use this Free "Be Kind" SVG Cut File to create projects that promote kindness! 

Free "Be Kind" SVG Cut File

Today is World Kindness Day, so what better way to brighten your day than with a FREE kindness-themed cut file? There are so many things you can create using this cut file using your Cricut (or vinyl cutting machine) like clothing, hats, totes, home decor, and so much more! I can't wait to see what you create!

To make your own "Be Kind" shirt, you'll need these supplies:

Free "Be Kind" SVG Cut File

Upload the "Be Kind" cut file into Design Space and size the image to fit your shirt. Select different parts of the design and change colors as necessary. Get creative using your favorite colors, or add some sparkle with glitter HTV.

Select the parts of the design that are the same color, and click "Attach" from the bottom right menu to keep the image elements in place. If you don't attach them, all of the parts of the design will arrange themselves to fit the mat instead.

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.

Lilac Cricut Explore Machine

For my design, I cut multiple colors of HTV 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.
