A GUIDE TO THE BEST FREE SVG FILE RESOURCES: EASY TO USE WITH A SILHOUETTE OR CRICUT
Over in our Facebook group we share links daily to designers that provide high quality free SVG files for you to use with your Silhouette or Cricut cutting machine. Today I wanted to compile and share with you my personal master list of places online that offer a FREE SVG FILE regularly. This list is a way for you to find designs, freebies, and high quality SVG designs anytime you want. Give it a bookmark or pin to hang onto it for reference.
Some of the freebies you will find in these spots are only for a limited time, some are for personal use only, and some are forever free (my personal favorite type of designs). Make sure to check with the individual site and designer to confirm the licensing and the length of the free SVG. I do know though, that these spots are great for finding high quality designs, that will cut smoothly on your machines, and make beautfiul crafts with.
Sometimes, especially as you are first learning and experimenting with your machine, it is nice to have a free svg file (or two) to practice with. This resource will expose you to tons of styles, designers, and platforms. So let’s dig into the list shall we?
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS POST DOES CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS. THIS MEANS THAT AT NO EXTRA COST TO YOU WE EARN A SMALL PERCENTAGE IF YOU PURCHASE SOMETHING THROUGH OUR LINK.
That’s Us!! We provide free designs for you on a regular basis. It is one of our favorite ways to serve YOU, our community. Designing is so much fun and we get so much joy out of seeing them come to life! Some freebies are forever over here on our blog and some are only available for a limited time in the freebies section of our SVG shop. Our designs are mainly focused on crafters who work with vinyl. (think shirts, mugs, cups, decals, etc.)
Snoop around the site a little bit and I’m sure you are bound to find some that you love! If you are looking for a specific type or style feel free to reach out. While we don’t take custom requests I always love working off of a suggestions list.
Here are a couple of the most popular FREE SVG posts that we have:
This site truly has it all! I love that they have a huge bank of freebies that they switch out each week and their $1 events are amazing. You can find clipart, SVG files for ANYTHING you are looking for, and any type of digital art. Click on the image below to go right to the design section of the site. I also love that they have a sister site called Font Bundles. That is one of my favorite spots to find high quality fonts. Check out more of my favorite font spots here.
This is another online marketplace spot that has a large variation of designs. I love having it at my fingertips in case I just can’t find exactly what I’m looking for with one specific designer. They also have a free svg section that is switched out regularly.
At the Hungry Jpeg you will find a weekly freebie. The freebie might be a font, a design, or even a clipart. I like the variety of never knowing what will be the special this week.
This marketplace is packed full with quality designers and goodies that are perfect to use with a Silhouette or Cricut cutting machine. The designers each have a week that they are assigned to provide free svg files for so you will get paper crafts, signs, designs for vinyl, and sometimes even fonts. It is definitely worth checking out!
This spot has all kinds of simple free SVG designs that you can use and experiment with as you get to know your machine and even learn to design yourself. Most of these designs in the freebies section are all one color which is perfect as you become comfortable with your program. Their dollar section also has a bunch of great designs too!
Creative Fabrica is great because it has a little bit of a different variety of finds. You can search mock ups (check out what those are here), free SVG design, fonts, graphics and more.
Love SVG has a huge database of freebies. They also have been so kind as to give our Chaos readers a coupon code for any of the fonts or bundles. Make sure to use the code: MDITC15 for 15% off!
I love the designs over on her site. She has digital papers and great designs for scrap booking and making cards. I believe she does a free svg every single day!
Nikita is so super talented and provides the cutest hand drawn SVG designs and fonts. I also love her mock up style. They are unique and unlike others you will find on the web. She has been a guest trainer in our monthly membership and it was so fun to learn all about how she hand letters her svg designs and fonts.
Chelly also loves paper crafts and I found her when she posted the cutest diaper card SVG for a baby shower! She does a weekly freebie and was also a membership guest trainer. Since she is graphic designer by trade she was a wealth of information for tips on how to kern our fonts when we design so that our designs look more professional. She is a wealth of info! Go check her out!
Ruchira is super talented and provides some adorable freebies on a regular basis on her site. She also trained our membership on how to design word art and I highly recommend you checking her out!

I’m sure there are a ton of other great spots out there too to find great SVG cut files but these are some of my go-to places and it should give you a great start to finding designs that fit your style and needs perfectly. Like I mentioned above make sure to check with the designer’s policies on when and how you can use their designs.
Also on a side note I just want to mention that just because you find something on google that doesn’t make it free. Go the additional step, click on the image and double check that it really is a free design. Designers work hard to provide quality files so if there is something that you love and you find it isn’t free, I highly encourage you to spend the couple of bucks on it. That is what helps continue to support the designer being able to provide free SVG files and goodies for everyone!
When you trace a design instead of purchasing it, or even share the file with someone who hasn’t purchased it you are literally stealing the art of that designer. As a designer myself when I see that it just breaks my heart. Even if the design is free to link click help that creator.
OK I’ll get off my soap box now but I couldn’t talk about freebies without mentioning it. Stealing in our digital world is so prevalent, and my designs have been victim to it too many times. I can’t just sit back and say nothing.
Thanks for being here, supporting our space on the web, and make sure to show us how you bring your free svg to life! Until next time happy crafting, cutting, and chaos.
