These don't fall into that "elite" group of no no's that you can't buy with coupons.

When those first came out, I had asked someone to show me where they were and the lady that helped me (she's been there for years and sews a lot) told me that they were pretty much both a waste of money. The strip cutter: if the fabric is not already cut PERECTLY straight, you will not get straight strips. And for the life of me, I can't remember what she said about the Bias Tape Maker, but I ended up not buying either. I believe they are supposed to come out with more tips for the Bias Tape maker.

Please keep us updated ... I'm curious now. If it cut wider strips like 5", I probably would reconsider it.

I bought it to make flip flops at first I got it out of the box and tried it, it didn't work and then I read the instructions and it say it will not cut straight out of the box you have to make adj. because it cuts with pressure. I made the adj and it works after you cut it you do have to pull the strips apart. I started with the straight side of the fabric you no The un-cut part. It will not cut circles only straight strips with the straight blade or zig zag with the pinking shear attachment

Does it cut circles? I have been looking for something to cut felt circles too, but I don't find any info where this one does...

I just tried my olfa circle cutter for the first time yesterday. It is great. I did screw up some circles, but once I got the hang of it I was even cutting tulle and felt. It is not a machine, but works for me. I also thought about getting some circle dies for my sizzix, but I cut so many sizes the circle cutter was better.

No, it does not cut circles. Only straight strips of fabric.
