Default fabric circle cutter thing from Micheals

I finally got one... I think I thought it was going to cut the circle for me and me not have to do anything. It's not as big of a pain as using regular sissors.
My problem is my fabric keeps moving and my circles aren't perfect. Also it doesn't cut 2 pieces of fabric at the same time very well... so I have to cut one circle at a time. Do I need a better blade or something then the one it came with? ALSO it had trouble cutting thicker fabric, so I had to do that by hand.
Maybe I just need to practice more?

Someone invent a cheap machine that I can just put my fabric in and circles come out in seconds.

I have this gadget and I love it!! Mine cuts two at a time. In the beginning I would cut jacked up circles too, but after some practice I can get them just right and im pretty fast at it. I will not go back to scissors I refuse especially cutting circles.

I guess I need practice then. My material keep shifting.. so maybe I need to work with a smaller piece of material as well or not let the other part hang off the table.
It has been better then using sissors. BC I don't have to trace a circle then cut the circle.. Just wondered if I should be able to cut more then one piece of fabric at a time... maybe I'm not pushing down hard enough.

I did make about 10 fabric flowers yesterday and have about 18more to make this weekend for someone, so this gadget will make the circle cutting much faster!
