Default Just bought a cuttlebug to cut fabric

Did I make a good choice? I want to make the fabric and felt covered clippies.

No advice here, but I thought about getting one too. I'm curious what others are going to say.

It does but not very good. I just tried it. I know that my sizzix will do it.

I tried using fabric not felt. It was partially cut.

so, the sizzix is a good one. I have been looking at them but unsure which one to purchase. Does it make clean cuts or do you have to trim them?

there was a large link on cuttlebug for clippies recently. Wool felt cuts like a dream, whereas acrylic being thicker did not. For fabric, I bonded 2 pieces together for a neater finish, and was told to put another layer of card between the perspex sheets to get the clean cut. Although the sheets do warp, I find that they still cut and I rotate them round. With Cuttlebug, I have bought other brand dies and they have all worked great.

Rgds,

One also could still use CB dies with Sizzix die cutting machine or vice versa. So, it's not all at loss.

I LOVE, LOVE my Sizzix (Original) and I use dies from Sizzix (of course), CB dies and the QK dies.

It's not the machine that cuts...it's the dies that's important.

Oops - started another thread instead of updating this one. I didn't try fabric but it wouldn't cit through ribbon. I'm bummed. I wanted to cover snap clips in fabric and ribbon to match my daughter's outfits.
