Hello, friends! The Fourth of July is somehow just around the corner, and today I’m teaming up with some of my designer friends to bring you some free USA themed SVG cut files to celebrate.
This design is actually a design I hand lettered five whole years ago for a foiled July 4th party decor post. I have been meaning to convert this design to a cut file for a while now, and it’s finally done!
You can download the free SVG, DXF, EPS, and PNG versions of this design at the end of this post.
DIY Patriotic Floral Baseball Cap
I used the design to make myself a little floral patterned hat! (I love patterned vinyl and have a whole post all about creative ideas for patterned vinyl that you can check out here.)
It’s super easy to make your own patriotic hat with heat transfer vinyl and my free cut file design, and I will walk you through the steps!
First, take a minute to gather up your supplies. Here’s everything you will need.
DIY Patriotic Cap Supplies:
- Blank Baseball Cap
- Silhouette Cameo, Cricut, or other Cutting Machine
- Weeding Hook
- Floral Patterned Heat Transfer Vinyl (or check out my other favorite red, white, and blue patterned vinyls below)
- Smooth Red HTV
- Cricut Easy Press Mini or Small Craft Iron
- Ironing Paper or Parchment Paper
- My Free Cut File (Download at the end of this post.)
How to Make Your Patriotic Cap
I will go through the basic steps of making your own cap below, but if you are new to working with heat transfer vinyl, be sure to check out my detailed beginner’s guide to HTV right here.
- Download the cut file from the link at the end of this post and open it in your cutting machine software.
- Scale the image to fit on your baseball cap. (Read more about scaling and positioning HTV projects here.)
- Mirror (flip horizontally) the design.
- Cut both layers of the design from your heat transfer vinyl.
- Weed out the excess vinyl from around the design.
- Position the first layer of the design on the front of the cap and use the mini iron to adhere it to the cap. I recommend using a small pillow or something inside the cap to help you get more pressure while ironing.
- Remove the clear carrier sheet, position the second layer of vinyl, and iron that in place, covering the design with your parchment paper if necessary to protect the first layer. Be sure to not place your iron directly onto any vinyl as it will melt.
- Peel off the second layer’s carrier sheet, and you are all done!
I love the way the floral vinyl looks on my cap, but any of these cute red, white, and blue patterned vinyls would look great too!
