Baby crafts these Hello World SVG designs:
Expecting a newborn is fun, and one of the memorable experience parents could have in their lifetime. But let us not forget it may be stressful for some parents as well, especially if you are having your first baby. The amount of work, energy and time that goes into welcoming your little bundle of joy is overwhelming. Parents are overwhelmingly waiting for their baby’s birth, yet some do not realize the planning, the work and time they will have to invest in raising their baby. A lot of things await them as they bring their baby into the world. A study found out that expecting moms expected their newborns to increase their work by 85% while dads expected their workload to increase by 53%. This is astonishing as new moms now, in addition to a 9 to 5 job, they must dedicate a good portion of their day to the baby as well. Expecting parents are so engrossed in baby-delivery worries and hospital bills that they completely forget the looming workload and energy they must put into raising the newborn. Without proper planning, partners are bound to exhaust themselves with overworking, fights regarding looking after the baby, which will take its toll on their relationship. Babies indeed are a lot of work, but partners can avoid arguments and feelings of jealousy by sitting down and planning their lives. Issues like who will look after the baby in an emergency or dividing your duties should be discussed. Both the parents must feel appreciated, and an equal amount of work needs to be assigned to them regarding the baby’s care and upbringing. Workload and chores concerning the baby should not be dumped on the mother alone. If appropriately planned, such decisions will prevent problems and maintain a healthy relationship between the parents. In fact, according to a study, the partners’ relationship is strengthened after having a newborn, if they both appreciate each other and adjust their work and baby chores accordingly. Your little bundle of joy should feel loved and cared for, and therefore expecting parents need to sit down and have a future talk about it.
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:
