Gorgeous, hand-drawn dragonfly SVG files for cutting machine craft projects...

Three designs that can each be used as:

  • a simple one-layer design or...
  • layered up (four layers each) for a colourful dragonfly project.

Designs are available individually or as a bundle of all three designs.

Meet the Dragonfly SVG Designs!

I enjoyed drawing the ornate designs for these dragonfly SVG files so much that I ended up creating three of them for you!

Two are quite large and very intricate with lots of lovely detail, best suited for moderate to large size projects (I also test cut to sizes smaller than supplied, so they will go reasonably small - photos to come later in the page)...

The third design is smaller and simpler - so it's specially designed for those smaller cutting projects - but don't worry, as it looks ornate and intricate too, just like a dragonfly wing should. This one is (secretly) my favourite dragonfly - the cute one! 

You can see the relative sizes in the images at the top of the page.

  • Each of the dragonfly SVG designs has four layers which gives a multi-coloured look to your finished dragonfly. You can also use the layers to create a 3D look to your dragonfly by adding sticky foam pads between the layers!
  • The dragonflies are also specially designed so that you don't have to use all four layers - each of the top layers is an intricate top layer which gives you a really beautiful dragonfly that you can use just as one layer for easy vinyl crafts, papercutting, engraving, and more.
  • If you choose, you can use just one or two of the three base layers if you want fewer colours in your project - I'll share images of how all the layers work later in this page.

So, now, let's take a closer look at each of the dragonflies...

Each of the dragonflies below has been cut with my Cricut Maker using the 'Cardstock for intricate cuts' setting.

My dragonflies have been made using Sizzix 'Surfacez' textured cardstock in various colours.

Focus on Dragonfly 1

The layered file gives the wings of different colours top and bottom - plus the body is a different colour too. You can build up your dragonfly using as many layers as you want - just one if you choose!

Using the SVG as-is in Cricut Design Space will give you a dragonfly that's approximately 26.8 x 18.9 cm (approx. 10.6 x 7.4 inches) in size - you can see the dragonfly cut to this size in my photo below.

I really love the blues and greens for the dragonfly - and I love him with the pale grey top layer as he looks so delicate and pretty. I think these are ideal colours for a dragonfly!

I also tried out an alternative colour, just for fun - it gives quite a different look that's very striking!

Focus on Dragonfly 2

There are four layers in the 'Dragonfly 2' SVG design - this allows the intricate top layer (which can be used separately) plus body and wings of different colours.

The wings also have a multi-colour floral design with the centres of the flowers in a different colour and a central heart in the body of the same colour.

You can mix and match a little bit with the base layers to get different looks.

Using the SVG as-is in Cricut Design Space will give you a dragonfly that's approximately 28.2 x 17 cm (approx. 11 x 6.7 inches) in size. You can see how this looks in the photo below...

I loved trying out these really pretty cream, pink, taupe and yellow for this dragonfly SVG file - it's such a delicate and feminine look.

I also loved trying out an alternate version too (below) which I did in dark grey, purple, lilac and pale green - a slightly different look but pretty too - and I always think that dragonflies really suit these purple and lilac tones, perhaps as they're so delicate and ephemeral looking - kind of a spiritual feel, perhaps?

Focus on Dragonfly 3

The third dragonfly SVG template also has four layers - you can have top and bottom wings different colours and have the body a different colour too - you can also use less layers, instead, if you prefer...

What's special about the Dragonfly 3 SVG template is that it's much smaller than the others! This means that you can use this dragonfly on smaller projects more easily while still getting that gorgeous intricate look.

Using the SVG as-is in Cricut Design Space will give you a dragonfly that's approximately 17.4 x 11.3 cm (approx. 6.9 x 4.4 inches) in size. This is the size that you can see in the image right below - I also cut slightly smaller, too, which I'll show you as well.

As well as the blue, green, and pale green dragonfly SVG template (see photo above) which I think looks so beautiful and watery - I also created an alternative colour version (see photo below) which I did with a teal top layer and pink and peach wings (both have a grey body) - I think this looks very pretty and cute!

Choosing your Dragonfly SVG File

I hope that my three dragonfly SVG templates have inspired you and that you can't wait to start creating and crafting...

As a quick reminder, I'll show you all the dragonfly SVG files right below to help you decide which one you prefer for your project - dragonflies 1 and 2 are a little larger and very ornate and intricate - if you have a smaller project, or want one that's a little less intricate, try dragonfly 3 who is little and cute.

You can get each design individually, or if you love them all, get all three as a bundle and save money!

Please double check you're choosing the correct dragonfly - due to the nature of digital downloads, if you make a mistake and select the wrong design, I won't be able to refund you if you've already downloaded the files.
