Okay so I think I'm about to take a ride to Michael's to see if I can find that circle cutter! Thanks Shelby for the tip and the coupon. If I can't find one I will probably get you to cut some for me since you can get them to me faster. I will let you know before tonight though. Thanks ladies for all your suggestions!

I just made some felt flower brooches and it took me no time to cut out the circles. If you need me to cut some for you let me know. Since we both live in Louisiana it would get to you in no time.

okay Shelby I never made it to Michael's tonight....I am gonna go first thing in the morning. I'm just gonna try to find that thing and do them myself...thank you all for your offers to make them for me though.
I think it would be great to have because I do the fabric flowers and that would definitely save some time. I usually have DH cut out my circles and um let's just say it's not his favorite job.

Yaaay! I'm glad you found it. I discovered that you can cut more than one at a time, too. I think I did about three at once the other day.

it was in the section with the sewing notions, like where the rotary cutters and cutting mats are.

I had no idea you could cut multiple layers....I tried it out tonight on the felt and it did fine. I need to get used to cutting with it on cotton fabric though....it didn't cut that well but I think it's just bc I have never used a rotary blade before.

I think the main thing with cutting fabric is to not worry when it wrinkles up
