| | Re: cutting felt or fabric w/ cuttlebug
Can't comment on the cuttlebug but I do have a sizzix big shot and I LOVE it! Its compatable with most dies from other machines, and most importantly is fine with the big dies that cut through felt (sizzix originals and bigz). They have a sale at sizzix.com every Tues and you can buy them cheaply, and they always have stuff on clearance. Right now they have a sale section with up to 80% off.
I use mine to make felt flower headbands and clips, and so far could not be happier with it. Super easy to use and everything comes out so cleanly cut. If you sign up for the sizzix newsletter, you get coupon codes every week to save additional $$.
