These Grill Tools SVGs are great for Cricut, Silhouette, or any other cutting machine crafts.
Today, I wanted to share this free grill SVG cut file. With Father’s Day coming, I thought these would be perfect to make Cricut cards for dads who love to grill. Of course, BBQ SVGs are great if you’re looking to design a unique t-shirt or grilling apron for Father’s Day. In addition, you can use grill tools templates to create scrapbooks or party invitations as well.
This year, I loved using these free grill master SVGs to make a fun Father’s Day card with my kids. You can download these free templates from my Resource Library. To access them, you just need to sign up for my newsletter below! In this post, I’ll go through some of the different ways you can use these free grill SVG templates and how to turn any image into an SVG template.
Since my husband is the king of the grill at our house, I decided to use these SVGs to make a fun Father’s Day card. To get started, you can download the free file from my resource library. Then, upload it into the Cricut Design Space software. Once you have your bbq grill SVG in the software, you should size it to the card you want to make. Next, you can send the image to cut.
If you are working on vinyl, you should mirror the image as you are working with the iron. Otherwise, your design could come out backwards. While this doesn’t make too much of a difference for the grill tools SVGs, it is essential to put the text on properly. Of course, you don’t have to worry about this if you’re making a grill master Cricut card.
I absolutely love these free grill templates to create fun Father’s Day cards and gifts. Of course, you can always use them for dad’s birthdays as well. Don’t forget to sign up for my newsletter for more free templates, fun card tutorials, and Cricut craft updates!

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 are 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:
