Nothing warms my heart more than Free Winter SVGs! And when I get to creating with my crafty friends, that means a HUGE list of FREE Winter SVGs for you (details at the bottom).

I love designing, I’ve been a graphic designer using Adobe Illustrator since the early 90s.
Each design I make is a labor of love. They come from my heart for sure, as designing is what I’ve made for. But every once in a while I’m over the TOP excited about a design and this is it. I could not wait to share this sweatshirt I made.
Layering HTV to make a shirt
I admit this scared me. I didn’t want to mess it up so avoided it. However, as of today, I am SOLD on the idea. It’s so easy. I edited the colors of this free winter SVG and made it my own!
You don’t have to edit the colors, but I like to see exactly what I’m getting. Let me show you how to tweak the colors of an SVG.
Supplies for this Free Winter SVG project
The colors on this new sweatshirt make me happy. For real! haha. It was a happy accident as I went through my vinyl stash, I originally planned to go with traditional Christmas colors. This metallic blush pink, mint green, and white just POP on the soft navy hoodie I found at Walmart.
- 3 colors of HTV vinyl
- Sweater Weather free SVG
- Hoodie or shirt
- Iron, Cricut EasyPress or heat press
Changing Colors on the SVG
This can be tricky, depending on how the SVG was set up. Some things are already welded by the designer and therefore making it harder or impossible to edit the colors. I do into a little more details on changing colors on an SVG here.
This is what it looked like when I cut out the file. See the steps I used to edit it below:
I like to make a background color match the finished product I’m making. Simply to help me get a better idea of what it will look like in the end. Bring a creative, I’m 100% visual and I find this helpful in making my idea come to life.
Grab a shape similar to or in a size that your SVG will fit on. I chose a navy-colored square.
Once you upload the Free Winter SVG, unattach the SVG file. Now, hold the shift key down while you select the items you want to make a new color. Do this step for each color set.
This obviously doesn’t change things when you actually cut but helps you see the finished product before it’s cut.
To make the SVGs easier to work with, I then attach the color set and “send to back” (or backward) so I can select the next set of colors. This is found under the arrangement tab on the top.
I pressed the white and mint layers at 300° for about 6 seconds. Just enough to press and remove the clear carrier sheet. When I did the pink layer I pressed it for about 10 seconds.
Remove the clear carrier sheet slowly and make sure all the items are stuck on your shirt. I used a heat pressing sheet and did 5 more seconds to make sure it was on there for good.
I can not wait to wear this one!
