| | Need recs for die-cutting machine and cover-button press
I have finally decided I am tired of cutting my felt! I am looking for recommendations on a die-cutting machine that will cut felt, fabric, and of course paper.
So far, I have read a lot about the Sizzix Big Shot. It seems to be versatile - I just read a review that stated it will use die plates from other brands. This sounds great...if it is true! If you have the Big Shot, do you like it? Or do you have another great machine? Please let me know your opinions.
I also need recs for a cover-button press. So far I have been using the plastic hand tools and they are not reliable...half the time they mess up the back of my buttons! All I know is that there is a "press" for covering buttons (with fabric) out there...but I have no idea what it looks like, brands, etc.
Please share your opinions. I am looking to purchase these items in about a week. TIA!
