I wish I could hit the beach soon, but this summer, it’s looking like I’m going to have to settle for an above ground pool. 😂 At least I can wear a sweet new beachy tank top while I’m relaxing poolside, right??
Today I am teaming up with some designer friends to bring you a collection of 8 free summer inspired cut files (keep scrolling to find all the designs).
My contribution is a brand new free SVG cut file design inspired by that retro beach/surf aesthetic. Despite the retro inspiration, I think this design has a really modern look and would be perfect for a custom t-shirt, tote bag, decal, or piece of wall art.
The design comes in either a multi-color version (see the tote bag) or two-color version (the tank top) for easier vinyl layering (you can read more about how to layer heat transfer vinyl here or adhesive vinyl here).
You could also print off the multi-color design on printable vinyl for a super easy multi-color decal. (Read all about making your own decals with printable vinyl right here.)
PLUS if you are looking for awesome beach-y designs, then you need to check out my new Endless Summer SVG Cut File Bundle! I love all of these designs, and I think you will too!

Thanks, I love this, and can think of several ways to use it.
Yay! So glad you like it. 🙂
I literally JUST discovered your page and was guided to it from a macrame pattern I had googled… You have so much more to look at! Oddly enough it was not too long ago I was researching the process of making T shirts and thought it wouldn’t be possible…
I was under the impression this was the type that does not do well in the wash? Am I wrong? Do you have a video that explains the process of how to apply the decals? I can get a good deal on a circuit from a friend so wondering if I should do it.
