Learn how to download the over 800 free SVG files from Dinosaur Mama.

For those who love to use their Cricut machines, finding good SVG files for various projects can be both exciting and overwhelming. One option is to search for free SVG files. In this tutorial, we'll walk you through the process of downloading from a computer and uploading my free commercial-use SVG files into Cricut Design Space. Plus, I am constantly adding new SVG file downloads to get you started on your next project!

I am using a Mac and the Chrome browser but the idea should be the same for a PC - my free SVG files can also be downloaded onto an iPad or iPhone. I am also using Chrome as my browser if you are using Safari please refer to the iPad/iPhone instructions.

Watch the youtube tutorial below. Mobile users, turn your phone or watch here.

Finding the Free SVG Files


Reminder: I am using Google Chrome on Desktop, follow these instructions if using Safari or iPhone/iPad.

I am constantly working to update how my free SVGs are listed to make them easier to scroll through. From the main home page you'll see the menu at the top with a drop down menu.

Once you scroll over the menu will show you all of the categories of free SVG files - I am adding more before each season to keep you crafting. The community SVG's are password protected and you can grab it by signing up for my newsletter below.

All of the SVG's found on my website are commercial use SVG's meaning that you can use these in any physical products that you make but I ask that the files themselves to not be sold. Please only use these if you are a small business making limited production. You can find the full commercial use license information for all of the free SVG downloads.

You will click the download now button and a new page will pop up and look like this below with just an image. Note that if the image is super large like some of my boxes or 3D designs - you may only see a partial image. You will see the full layered image once downloaded and uploaded to Cricut Design Space.

Next, you will see it downloading at the bottom (at least on a Mac) this is how it is shown.

Now, it should be on your desk top as an SVG file - these will not show the layers until you have uploaded them into Cricut Design Space. If you open the file outside of a design program (like Cricut, Silhouette, or Inkscape) it's going to only display as an image.

To get this option you must right click! Downloading on the image is not an option on Safari. The download process if similar to how you download on an iPad or iPhone!

Uploading the SVG files to Cricut Design Space

You have the file and it's ready to use, uploading to Cricut Design Space is easy but you do have to upload each file individually. They have not introduced mass uploads yet. On the side of your canvas you will see "Upload" and you will select a file. This is why it is important to remember where you save all your free SVG files.

You should not need to make any adjustments to the file - they are pre-layered with you for ease of use. Once you have the free SVG file added to the canvas, you can send right to your machine and it will sorted by color. You can of course adjust as needed, change the size, color, duplicate and make these SVG files your own.
