Question cricut or sizzix?

I just started to do research on the sizzix since I am interested in buying one but as I am reading it also says that the cricut cuts fabric which I didnt know! So my question is has anyone used the cricut to cut fabric? I ask this because I already own a cricut and if it does what the sizzix does than I can save a whole lot of money! TIA

It doesn't cut fabric well, you have to put stabilizer on the back to cut it

If I add a stabilizer to my fabric and cut simple designs it cuts well. Just don't try to cut small intricate designs. It takes some playing around with your Cricut settings to get it right.

I've used my Cricut to cut fabric too but I think the Sizzix would be a lot easier.
