Baseball - Make the Cut and SVG Files Available

Spring is arriving shortly which means my DS has moved on to baseball.  With that thought in mind, I knew that I needed to create some baseball items to make myself some T-shirts to wear to the school baseball games.  Obviously, the main thing a girl needs is the baseball its self.  I found this free baseball clipart at http://www.iloveclipart.com/ and converted it into a cut file for use with Make the Cut.  I then exported it out from my Make the Cut file and saved it to an .svg file to share for those who have not yet moved to Make the Cut. 

The file has 2 parts.  The first part really has 3 pieces - this would be the "white" portions of the baseball with the "seams" cut away.  The second part is the red for the seams.  Cut out the red circle then ovelay the 3 white pieces on top of the red to show the red "seams".  It is probably easiest to do this by using transfer tape of some kind to transfer the white pieces off your mat and to lay it on top of the red.  I did it this way because  I think it is easier to cut it this way then to try and cut those little red seams.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns with this or any other of my files.  I always test cut everything before I share so you shouldn't have any problems. I'd love to see anything you create with one of my files.  As always, thanks for stopping by.
