Default sizzlits in a BigKick for felt?

I wasn't sure where to post this. I want to cut small letters out of felt and seem to like only the sizzlits fonts. I think I remember reading here that sizzlits do not cut felt in the Big Shot/kick. Is this correct? Do you have any ABC die recommendations for the Bick Kick that WILL cut felt? Thanks.

sizzlits do not have a blade in them so they will not cut felt - at least thats the majority's opinion and what sizzix company says. a few people have said they can get it to work but def wouldnt bank on it. to do the alphabet with sizzix you have to bump up to the big dies and they are individual letters and very pricey. you might try stampin up - they might have something.

sizzix used to make alphabars, they were smaller letters but had I think 3 on each bar. There are probably some on ebay or craigslist.

I haven't used my cuttlebug dies for felt, I have a bunch of their alphabets and will try it this afternoon

I hav done this but it is not easy. You must use wool or wool blend felt and be VERY careful when pulling the letters as they can tear easily. It can be done, I do it all the time

Thanks for the input. I ordered Cuttlekids letters yesterday. Even if they don't cut felt, I can use them for other things as I really liked the font and it was cheap enough.
