What makes SVG files for Cricut so nice is that it is a clean image, meaning that you don’t have to clean out all the white spaces when you download an image.

What Material Did I Make My Lady Out Of?
I decided to make her with the blue holographic vinyl that I got from Cricut. She looks a different color depending on how you are looking at her. Amazon also carries the blue holographic vinyl.
You can’t really tell in this picture, but I have the mint green Cricut Machine Explore Air 2, so she looks so nice next to that mint green. Love it!
Not everyone who uses this SVG file for Cricut decides to use holographic vinyl though and was a personal decision.
You can use any kind of vinyl, whether it’s vinyl to attach to your Cricut Machine or HTV (Heat Transfer Vinyl) vinyl to put your SVG file image on a shirt or cloth of some sort.
For me, I hadn’t used Holographic vinyl yet and wanted to practice using it before I made a picture or gift for someone using it. I will use the holographic again.
The only bad thing was when I was working with it and the light hit it, it was blinding. But look at all the colors you get with just this one sheet of Holographic vinyl.
What do you think? She turned out great, didn’t she? The holographic vinyl really shows her off too. She is a good size too, about 8 inches tall by at least 6 inches wide.
Where Can You Get SVG Files for Cricut?
I said above that I got my Lady SVG file in a Cricut group. But there are other places to find SVG files for Cricut.
Etsy is my go-to place for SVG files. There are so many there that you will love.
