I don't make them, but I know a lot of people use a Cricut or Cuttlebug machine (i.e. diecut machines for scrapbooking) to cut out the felt shapes.

You can do it by hand though.

Cricut won't cut felt (unless they've made changes to the newer models). Cuddlebug, and some sizzix will : ).

I made these yesterday with my cuddlebug (not sewn yet)

I use a cuttlebug - great little machine! You just have to make sure you dont use dies with really thin lines, or else the felt will just fall apart.

I tried using the deep blade with my cricut and it will cut stiffened felt if you make it a huge simple pattern. Too big for a hair accessory. Was disappointed.

You should be able to use the coupon on it...while it is made by the same company as the Cricut (provocraft) it has nothing to do with a Cricut....they do put them on sale 50% off quite often.
