My husband is a mountain biker. He didn’t want a big gift for father’s day. So I had to get creative.
I’ve been wanting to get him a vinyl sticker of a mountain bike for the back of his truck for a while. But I didn’t know how or where to find one. My initial searches were unsuccessful.
Then I thought: Hey, maybe I can make one!
I searched for a graphic online but couldn’t find one I liked so I decided to make my own.
I took a picture of his bike in front of the garage so I could get good contrast.
I brought the picture into Inkscape and used the trace bitmap feature to create an outline of his bike:
This took me a while of trial and error and figuring out how it all worked. But finally I was successful!
I brought the vector outline file that I created into my Sure Cuts A Lot software so that I could cut the vinyl sticker. I didn’t think it would work the first time I tried, but it did!
He loved his gift and thought it was pretty cool. The white is pretty bright. I may get some grey vinyl and re-cut it.
I just love it when I have an idea and I work really hard, and I figure out how to do it! So fun!
