These Free Soccer SVGs are great for Cricut, Silhouette, or any other cutting machine crafts.
To get into the Olympics spirit this month, I decided to create this free soccer SVG set for fun Cricut crafts. I love using these soccer love templates to make kids’ birthday cards. Of course, you can also use these SVG files to make soccer mom t-shirts with Cricut. If your kids play soccer, it can be a fun craft to do with them as well.
To access these free soccer ball SVG files, you just need to sign up for my newsletter. Then, you will be able to download them from my Resource Library. In this post, I’ll discuss a few fun, unique ways you can use these free soccer SVG templates. Then, I’ll go over a tutorial on how to turn any image into an SVG template.
Soccer Love SVG
First, the soccer love SVG file is a great template to make t-shirts your kids can wear to soccer practice. To get started, you’ll need iron-on sheets for your Cricut cutting machine. If you’re looking to make a shirt that looks like a sports jersey, you can use a mesh iron on to get a professional sports-look effect. Often, these come in a variety of different colors and styles as well.
I’ve found that the Cricut EasyPress 2 is a great tool to adhere the vinyl on to the shirts. Of course, you can also make water slide soccer coffee mugs and other fun crafts using the soccer SVG.
Half Soccer SVG
In addition, the half soccer ball SVG file is perfect if you’re looking to add text to the middle of your t-shirt or card design. For example, you can add your child’s name, soccer mom, or just the word soccer. The soccer heart SVG is also great if you’re looking to make a handmade soccer-themed gift for friends or family.

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:
