Making Crafts with this Simple Cat Head SVG
Cats are lovable pets. They are adorable and easy going. No wonder anyone would love to have them as their furry companions. However, throughout the years, cats are sometimes portrayed in a bad light. Usually, these felines have a reputation of being ‘cold pets.’ Most would suggest that cats are not as compassionate as dogs. People would then continue to compare these two innocent creatures. However, the reality is that these felines have personalities and traits that their canine friend do not have. It also works vice versa. So please, do not compare dogs with cats. Trust me, both cats and dogs are such a delight to have as pets.
In different countries, cats are a part of their culture. For example, in Egypt, an Ancient Goddess Bastet was a cat. And, in Japan, cats are revered for giving good lucks. Although some cultures see cats as gifts, some countries treat the cat as a warning. In some countries, such as France and Germany, people treat black cats as bad luck. They explained that black cats are associated with death. Although this kind of myth does not apply today, some people still believe in it.
Fortunately, people are more loving these days. Even though cats may come off as cold as they are different from dogs, they are sweethearts. They make sure you receive the love you give them. Cats are a pretty entertaining company as well. They would love to play with you and their toys.
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:
