Default Using a Coluzzle (or something else?) for cutting circles for fabric buttons?

Hey all,

I find myself cutting a LOT of 1 and 3/4 inch circles these days out of fabric for my 7/8 inch buttons. I had recycled some clear plastic to make a template for tracing, but the hand cutting is slow going! I'm not a scrapbooker, so I know absolutely nothing about a Coluzzle, but does anyone have experience with using these to cut fabric? I'm looking at this item on Ebay and she says you use it with a Guarded Swivel Knife. Will that cut fabric? I haven't checked yet to see if one of the circle sizes is 1 and 3/4 inches, but if so, I'd like to try this.

I tried using a Fiskars Circle Cutter and ended up taking it right back to Michaels as there was no way to hold the fabric down well...
