Where Can I Get the SVG Files for Baby’s First Holidays Bibs Set?

What Supplies Do I Need to Make These Cricut Bibs?
HTV sheets (colors of your choice)
Thin cloth or heating sheet (sometimes, these come with some vinyl)
Can Heat Transfer Vinyl Be Washed?
Yes! However, I highly suggest machine washing it in cold water without any softener. I also recommend waiting at least 24 hours before putting it in the washing machine (so that it settles into its fabric as much as possible). If you decide to dry in the dryer, set it to low heat. Otherwise, hanging to dry is the best option.
Does Heat Transfer Vinyl Last On Fabrics?
With the proper care, HTV can last for quite some time – even years! Be sure to read above for our care and wash instructions.
How to Make A Set of “Baby’s First Holidays” Bibs
Looking for a great baby shower present? Why not make give a gift that’s handmade?! These “First Holidays” bibs are just absolutely adorable and SO easy to whip-up.
Step 1: Upload the Project on Cricut’s Design Space
For the sake of this tutorial, I’ll be using a Cricut and thus, Design Space will be the corresponding program.
Begin by downloading the SVG cut file to your computer or tablet.
Open up Design Space and click “New Project.”
Next, click “Upload Image” followed by “Browse”.
From here you will find the file provided and click it.
In the lower right hand corner you will see “Upload”. On the next screen you will see your file has been uploaded to your image database. Click the file, and click “Insert”.
Step 2: Adjusting Your Project on Design Space
Your image should now be on your design space.
To the right you will see a list labeled “Groups”.
Click on the group of images your wish to create. As you can see, I highlighted the Christmas design.
Next, click “Weld” on the lower right, and move your design to the top left hand corner.
Next click “Select All,” to highlight the remaining designs, and press “Delete” on your keyboard. Now you should only have the design you want to work with.
Select your design and drag it until it is large enough or small enough to fit on your bib. I made mine a little over 4 inches wide.
Next, click “Make It.”
Step 3: Cut Out Your Design
Place your HTV on your cutting mat. Make sure the shiny plastic side is facing down.
Turn on and open your Cricut. Make sure the USB cord is plugged into your computer, and that your dial is set to “Iron On”.
Load your grip mat into your Cricut.
Next, on your computer, click “Mirror” (as shown), followed by “Continue.” Follow your on-screen prompts.
Once your Cricut has successfully cut out your project, proceed with weeding the design. Use your weeding tools as shown.
Step 4: Iron The Design On The Bib
Place the weeded design color side down onto your bib.
Place your bid on a folded towel.
Place your heating sheet (most HTV comes with one) on top of your bib.
Hold your iron on the bib for one minute at the hottest setting.
Remove the iron and allow to cool completely. This is very important!
Remove the plastic backing and enjoy!
