Download this Lucky Shamrock Free SVG file and get crafting! This free saint patrick’s day cut file can be used for any project, but I’m sharing how to create a pinch proof t-shirt with this file!
For years I’ve made my kids t-shirts for Saint Patrick’s day that say ‘pinch free’ but this year, my daughter saw this design and asked if her shirt could be a lucky charm shirt.
This ‘You Are My Lucky Charm’ Shamrock design is a free SVG that I’ve designed for you to use on your own shirts or whatever project you’re making for Saint Patrick’s Day! I have some project suggestions in this post, I’m also sharing even more Free Saint Patrick’s Day SVG files my friends have created at the bottom of this post- make sure to check those out!
In this post I’m also going to show you how to take a layered SVG file (like this one!) and use the Cricut slice tool to cut one layer out of the other to make a single layer vinyl design for easy projects.
Let’s get to it!

How do I upload a Free SVG to Cricut Design Space?
Once you’ve downloaded your free SVG file, it’s time to upload it to your cutting machine software. I use my Cricut to cut out my SVG files, but you could also use your Silhouette or other brand of cutting machine. To upload an SVG file to Cricut Design Space is super straight forward.
Open up Cricut Design Space and start a new project. In the left hand panel, select ‘upload’ and search for your file. You can add a name to your file at this point then upload it and insert it into your project. That’s it. The SVG file has all the layers separated for you and Cricut reads all that information for you.
If you’re new to uploading your own images to Cricut and would like more information on the different types of files you can cut with your Cricut, this video walks you through all the different types and how to upload them to Cricut Design Space to use them in your projects.
How to Slice a two layer SVG design into one Cutout
This lucky shamrock free SVG is a two layer design. That means that the shamrock shape is one layer and the lettering overlay is another layer. This is great for crafts- cutting the shamrock out of green paper, then laying some glitter vinyl of the lettering on top. I wanted to make sure to give you the option to cut this out in layers, but I prefer to keep things *super* simple for my own crafting.
I chose to slice the lettering out of the shamrock to create a single layer cut for my daughter’s saint patrick’s day t-shirt.
The Cricut slice function can only slice two layers at a time. Each part of the lettering in the lucky shamrock is a separate layer, although they’re all grouped together. Start by welding any pieces together to make one layer of lettering/overlay.
Once you have two layers to slice, select them both and click slice. This will break the design into three layers. We just want to use the one that has the shamrock outline with the lettering sliced out of the design. You can turn the others off to cut it!
If you are choosing to make a shirt (or any project using iron on vinyl), remember to mirror your image before cutting!
