Before you start designing decals we must cover the basics of Inkscape.

-The Draw Bezier and Straight Lines

After selecting this tool you want to left click to create a node and it'll take a couple nodes to create a rough outline of your shape. You may notice a red line this is to help you create your desired shape.

Will help you refine your rough outline into the desired shape. Simply click Edit paths by nodes then select your outline and push or pull a line segment till it's correct.

-Stroke Style

Select the paint brush located on the top tool. A window should open and select stroke style. Make sure to click on your line. Topically 2.000 and 3.000 PX are the stranded line widths I use for all my decals.

Thanks for the tutorial, Dutch! I think the most helpful part of this was the color guide. It is very hard to try to find the exact Lego shade of color.
