Default Another Sizzix Question

So I teach and we have a big die cut machine. Do you think I could get some of the cute flower sizzix dies and use our machine with them? I want to cut some felt. Thanks!!

I don't think the Sizzix dies cut felt...at least the ones I've got don't. I do have some Cuttlebug dies that cut felt and do a great job. I use them with my Sizzix Big Shot Express machine.

Where do you get your wool felt from? Maybe I will just bite the bullet and buy a big kick!! I love all the felt appliques everyone is doing!!

It would depend on the type of die cutter you have at school and it it is compatible with the other dies. Some of the industrial cutters aren't meant to handle other type of dies.
Thanks for the tip...I do have some wool felt but haven't tried it yet. The felt I used was the cheap craft kind. I'd be jumping with joy if my Sizzix dies cut the felt, too, because I've got some really cute dies. Our local Joann's, which is about this * big doesn't carry wool felt. I'm still searching for a reasonable on line source. Thanks again!

The Sizzix Sizlits does not cut good, IMHO. They cut but not a clean cut...I've bought 2 and that was it. Wasted!..lol...
