As the title says, I have a Big Shot machine and I want to cut felt. I'm aware of the great compatibility with other non-Sizzix brand die cuts. However,  I'm wondering if anyone knew which die cutters work best with felt. For instance, I just found this adorably cute and amazing Sizzix Sizzlit die cutter! http://www.sizzix.com/product/3031 After some research, I realized that the Sizzlit line of cutters is not really meant to cut anything larger than 1 lonely piece of card stock. Sad Since I don't want to buy something just to find out that it doesn't work, I'm wondering if anyone knew what brand or product line of die cutters would cut felt? Thanks!!

OK I know this thread is months old, but I know the answer! LOL

To cut fabric of any kind you need the sizzix ORIGINALS dies. The dinky little flat type dies will not cut felt, as you realized. But originals are heavenly for cutting felt and fabric. Even 2-3 layers! More layers if it is thin fabric.

Go to the sizzix website or ebay or etsy and do a seach for originals and you will be in big shot heaven!!!
