Baseball Mom - Make the Cut and SVG Files available

Well, since I got my baseball file ready I've been trying to come up with my T-shirt design.  The obvious one is  "MOM" with the baseball serving as the "O" in Mom.  I've tried a couple of different configurations.  Since our school is Spartans, I tried a Spartan head in the middle of the baseball.  Problem is, to get it small enough you lose the teeny tiny little pieces of the helmet and I didn't like that.  Then I tried the player's number on the baseball.

I wanted to share my Make the Cut and SVG files for the "Baseball Mom."  I am going to post only the file without a number added.  However, I am showing it to you both with and without the number added to the file.  It is very simple to add your number to the baseball if you want it there.  I used the font "Freshman" that I have on my computer.  It is an athletic style block lettering that I use a lot for sports stuff.  This is also what I used for the Ms in "MOM". In Make the Cut, go to your Text tab, select the Font you wish to use and then click the add Text Buton to to add your text.  Once it is on your mat, resize as needed and place where you desire.  I would suggest keeping it on its own layer if cutting it separately.  However, if you want it to "cut out" of the white part of the middle of the ball, you would "join" the number to that part. I plan to use mine with Heat Set Vinyl to make a T-shirt for me to wear to games. 

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to leave me a comment and I will do my best to answer them as quickly as possible but know that I am not always able to check the blog everyday so it may be several days before I answer.  Thanks for stopping by.
