Default Help= Does Sizzix Sidekick cut Felt?

I bought a sizzix sidekick yesterday since it was so cheap at Joanns. Does it cut felt though?? Tried searching and never found an answer. I know the big kick does but what about the sidekick?

does it fit the BIG Diez? If so, I think it can, then - I may be wrong, but I think that's the case

It's not the machine that cuts...it's the dies. What die(s) did you buy? Sizzix dies, cuts...the sizzlits, so-so...

No the sidekick only takes thin dies like sizzlits which do not make a clean cut on felt. They mostly just make the impression on it and then you have to hand cut around it. You can buy adapters so it will take other thin dies like quickutz which might cut felt since they do on the big kick though. I have some adapters but have never used them.

The sizzix big shot cuts felt. You can use any of the sizzix dies except the sizzlets. The original, bigz, fit. Also some of the cuttlebug dies work to, for felt.

I was just wanting to buy one that cuts felt but didnt know which to buy. Does this also cut most fabrics or just felt? Hope your loving your new toy!

I just got the Big Shot Express not too long ago and it cuts felt, fabric, metal, chipboard, you name it. And it's electric - no hand crank!! Love it!
