Use these funny lemon SVG files with your Silhouette or Cricut machine to create unique decor or clothing.
The weather is ridiculously hot and all I want to do is enjoy a tall glass of lemonade on my deck. Today I’m sharing some fun lemon SVG files from myself and from some of my talented designer friends. Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the post to grab all the free files. Yes, they are all completely free!
Not only do I have a fun lemon SVG file for you, but I’m also going to show you how to use this SVG file to make your own shirt using heat transfer vinyl (HTV). Here are some basic posts on SVG files, vinyl, and Silhouette Studio.

DIY SHIRT SUPPLIES
Here are the supplies that you will need to make the shirt shown above:

HOW TO MAKE A DIY SHIRT WITH THE LEMON SVG FILE
- Grab the lemon SVG file. The SVG file is located in the resource library which is available to my email subscribers.
- Cut out the SVG file onto heat transfer vinyl. If you want your design to look like mine, you’ll need to cut multiple colors of vinyl.
- Weed the excess vinyl from your design.
- Set the EasyPress 2 to 335 degrees (recommended for SiserEasyWeed on a cotton shirt)
- Press the shirt for 5 seconds with the Cricut EasyPress 2 to remove moisture and wrinkles
- Place the design onto the shirt. If you need to layer the vinyl, here is an easy tutorial for layering HTV.
- Press for 15-20 seconds. Check out this post for how to use the Cricut EasyPress 2.
- Remove the carrier sheet.
- Turn the shirt over and press for 15 seconds
HOW TO USE THIS SVG FILE AS A STENCIL
Did you know that you can also use this SVG file as a stencil? Follow the first three steps above, using adhesive vinyl instead of HTV. Instead of weeding out the negative space, weed away the opposite pieces. For a more detailed description on how to use an SVG file as a stencil, check out this post.
If you make a project using this file, I’d love for you to post it and tag it with #totallyfreeSVG and @kellylcreates so I can see your beautiful work!
SVG FILE FAQs
How do I open these files in my Silhouette software? First, download the file and save it to your computer. If it is a zip file, unzip it. Next, open your Silhouette software and click FILE>OPEN and navigate to where you saved the file. You can also import the file(s) to your Silhouette library by clicking FILE>LIBRARY>IMPORT TO LIBRARY and navigating to where you saved the file.
Can I open SVG files in the Silhouette Basic Edition? No. You must have Silhouette Designer Edition to open SVG files. If you have Silhouette Basic Edition, you can only use STUDIO files. STUDIO files are specific to Silhouette. You can also use PNG files with Silhouette Basic Edition but you’ll have to first convert the PNG to a cut file.
Can this file be used with a Cricut? Yes. Any SVG file can be used in Cricut Design Space.
How do I cut out this SVG using multiple colors? If you would like to use multiple colors of vinyl, you can cut by color in the Silhouette software. Cutting by color allows you to cut each color separately and layer the pieces on the final project.
