Default Felt help please :)

So I am using my sizzix for the first time and the felt isn't cutting through. It is getting scored as is the glass, but not cutting out. I am positive I am doing something wrong, just not sure what. Thanks for any advice

For sizzlits you have to use the platform with one or both tabs.

Are you making sure you're using the platform correctly for the dies you're using (the different tabs tell you which way to use different kinds).

I didn't use a tab for felt because I figured it was thicker than the chipboard. I used one tab with the paper and fabric because it wouldn'
t go through with two. I'll try felt with a tab. I am just a little frustrated because I am wasting felt and fabric Do you think there could be anything wrong with the machine?

No i don't think there is anything wrong with the machine. Don't be afraid to use the tab..you need it for the little dies.

I was able to get the thinner felt to finally cut with the tab and the cuttlebug. The thicker still no luck with the sixxlix on felt or fabric. I used the one tab it says to for the sixxlix. I tried putting through with the two tabs but won't go in. Any other thoughts?
Thanks for all the help - I truly appreciate it.

Did you mean Sizzlits? It doesn't cut felt nor fabric. Sizzix Originals/Bigz, yes, but not Sizzix Sizzlits.

I agree with everyone else about the tabs, use them

Also, it's hard to get acrylic felt to cut (at least for me). I use wool blend & they cut like butter. So maybe that could be it??

HTH a little
