Summer is here in Central Florida. The days are getting hotter and the humidity makes it hard to breath the second I walk outside. I designed this summer watermelon cut file after getting quite a few requests for a watermelon. Use the cut file with the letters or take them out and you have a plain watermelon ready to use for so many projects.
I used my Silhouette Cameo to put the cut file onto a Bella + Canvas muscle tank. Beware these tanks run on the small side! I learned the hard way with the chips and dip cut file tank.
The cut file will come in DXF format for Silhouette users, SVG for Cricut users and a PNG format for other graphic users.
This cut file is a little rough around the edges to give it the true hand doodles and lettered look. I made this design in my sketch book, scanned it into my computer and digitized it with Adobe Illustrator before saving in DXF, SVG and PNG formats. I like to create my designs this way to ensure you won’t find them anywhere else!

Hi Kelsey, Thanks so much for sharing these files - I love them! I just wanted to say that I am able to open these files just fine on my tablet (iPad). I use an app called iZip Pro, and am then able to upload them into Design Space. It’s a good thing, too, since my MacBook was apparently stepped on by poltergeists and I am computer-less... Thanks again, Carol
