Make Gift Bags Using Softball Laces SVG file

For these gift bags, you will only need the softball laces svg layer from the cutting file. You can download the laces-only file at the end of the post, or use the full softball file and hide the circle (ball) layer. Then, combine stitching layers inside your machine’s cutting program.

You will need:

Softball svg file (or download the laces-only file at the end of the post)
Cricut Explore Air 2and Cricut Design Space (or similar cutting machine)

Instructions:

  1. Save softball cutting file to your device and open in Design Space. Turn off circle ball shape, leaving laces layers visible.
  2. Rotate laces to take up minimum amount of space, then select both layers and drag corner of selection box to increase the size of stitches. (For this 5.5 x 9″ gift bag, I increased stitches to 11″ long.)
  3. Use “attach” button to combine the stitching onto a single layer.
  4. Cut out softball laces from red cardstock or sticky-back vinyl.
  5. Glue or stick laces to front of gift bag. Trim excess.
