Default Cutter for felt

I'm trying to find the best die cutter for felt.

Digital... I love this idea but most I have seen require me to use a fusible behind the felt and this won't work with what I'm planning to make. Also, none of them will allow me to see their templates without paying first and I need to make sure that they have what I need before I invest $$$$

Manual... I found one that has the dies I want but I wonder how many items I can cut before my arm gives out!

I would appreciate any thoughts and suggestions!

Default Re: Cutter for felt

I use a Sizzix Big Shot Express. It cuts all of the same dies as the regular Big Shot, but it is electric. No hand cranking involved. Probably one of the best things I've purchased. I have bad weak arms and this makes it possible for me to do a lot more. Hope this helps.

Also, it will cut other brands' wafer thin dies in addition to the Sizzix dies.

Forgot to mention, when using the Bigz dies, it'll cu through at least 2 layers of felt at a time, which is a great time saver. I only use acrylic felt though because I am allergic to wool, so I have no idea how well it works on wool felt. I use it for tons of other fabrics too though.

I'm bumping this up to see if anyone has any other suggestions. Will the new digital cutters work with felt?
