Default Re: For those of you who applique or make fabric flowers ...

I use a Sizzix Big Shot Express to cut fabric & felt etc for flowers. My mom, who quilts, won't even spend the money for the accu-quilt. She has a Big Shot also and has purchased the dies that they have for quilting and basic shape cutting. I can cut through probably 4 layers of thicker fabric or felt at a time with the Sizzix, but you have to get the Originals or Bigz dies because their Sizzlets only cut paper or the very thinnest of fabrics. (found that out the hard way & I really don't cut paper either) But they have some really nice dies in the Bigz and Originals that I use for flowers. I even have some with different sized squares (great for making kanzashi petals) & also one with different sized circles (awesome for singed flowers) in addition to their flower shapes.

Anyway, I hope this helps you.
