Blender will not import my svg image. I'm using inkscape and I made sure to use plain svg.
The SVG format can contain three types of graphic objects: vector graphics, raster graphics (bitmap images), and text. Blender's SVG importer can only deal with vectors (paths). So make sure you've traced your images as paths otherwise they will not load in Blender. In Inkscape use main menu -> path -> trace bitmap or press shift+alt+b
