Easy Way to Create a Golf Ball SVG Crafts
Sports are one of the best ways we entertain ourselves. It is also a great way to spend some time with family and friends. At the same time, burn some calories while we are at it. However, for others, sports is more than that. It is a burning passion they keep alive in their heart and their soul.
Some people dedicated their lives to sports to the extent that their names became synonymous with it. When we say swimming, we think of Phelps. When we say basketball, we think of Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan. And, when we say golf, we immediately think of Tiger Woods. Love them or hate them, their names will be engraved with these sports forever.
Speaking of golf, it is probably one of the elusive sports. Why? If you are not aware by now, most of the tools and equipment used in golf are quite expensive. Though, the golf ball can cost as cheaply as $10 per dozen on Amazon. But expect that the quality of the golf ball comes with its price tag. Although underrated and deemed as the sport for the elite, golf is an exciting game. Just like other sports, golfers prepared themselves emotionally, physically, and mentally. Did you know that a golf club can weigh 6 kilograms upwards? We doubt that you know that.
Even deemed as an expensive sport, golf’s most common symbol used during competitions and trophies is the cheapest item in golf – the golf ball.

How to turn any image into an SVG template
Interested in learning the easiest way to make your own SVG?
Here’s a quick tutorial on how to turn any image into an SVG format image without having to use any complicated graphics editing software.
First, a quick primer on what is an SVG… SVG stands for Scalable Vector Graphics. It is a way to store digital information about an image. Most images you see on the web and other digital devices use a bitmap or pixel based image storage format. In other words, the image is captured with information about each dot in the image.
SVG format images are part of a category of images that are vector based. Vector based images store the image as a series of paths and nodes. Most cutting machines like the Cricut and Silhouette use SVG format images because the blade on the machine needs to know what direction (or path) to cut.
To turn a bitmap based image into a vector based image, you need special conversion software tools. This is an algorithm tricky conversion because there lots of different ways to do it with varying degrees in quality. Most graphic editing software like Adobe Illustration make you manually decide on those conversion settings which makes it really difficult to use if you’re not already familiar with Illustrator.
I use a software tool called Vector Magic. With Vector Magic, you just upload your image (you can even copy and paste it in) and it automatically just converts to an SVG format for you. You can make editorial adjustments afterward if you’d like but there is a baseline conversion ready to go if that’s good enough.
Here’s an image for you to give it a try yourself. It’s a bunch of cute animal drawings I did the other day. I just took a picture of it with my phone. Try copy and paste this image into the Vector Magic interface. (Right-click on the image below, select “copy”, then head over to Vector Magic and past it into the window or just hit Ctrl+V)
After you pasted your image into the Vector Magic window, it will automatically start to convert your image:
This will take a few seconds. When the process is complete, you will see the vectorized SVG image on the right with the original on the left.
If you don’t like the automated conversion, there are a number of different adjustments you can make from the right tool panel.
After making adjustments, you can download your converted image as an SVG and then upload it to your cutting machine interface like Cricut Design Space below:
