Welcome to another tutorial in the 24 Week Cricut Series! I’ve already shown you how to upload PNG files and SVG files to design space, but did you know you could also upload patterns to Cricut Design Space? Create them in Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop, then follow these steps to fill in your designs! And by now, you’ve probably heard of the all new Cricut Maker.
…rest assured, all my posts in the series will still be up to date.
As you can see, I used the same pattern for this tutorial as my Superhero Fabric. You can see the process of creating this pattern here.
What you’ll need to Upload Patterns to Cricut Design Space:
- Cricut Maker or Cricut Explore Air
- Cricut Design Space – if you haven’t already tried the new program, go HERE and HERE to get all the details. If you are on the old program, try this tutorial.
- Pattern File – You can create your own pattern, like I did in Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop or even Canva. You can also purchase patterns from places like Creative Market.
- Create a new Project, then click on the UPLOAD button on the left-hand side.
- When the new screen pops up, you’ll have two different options to upload files. Click on the UPLOAD PATTERN button.
- Choose your document, click open, then SAVE.
- Insert an image or shape where you can fill it with a pattern.
- On the right-hand side, you’ll be able to see the shape layer. Click on the circle icon in that layer, and the layer attributes will pop up.
- First, click PRINT, then PATTERNS, and you’ll find the patterns you uploaded. Click on it and it will fill in your shape.
- You can now print and cut your document, or try adding more shapes and patterns!
