I had all but entered my credit card in the ordering process for the accu cut studio. My friend came in just at that time and said Wait! She asked what I was going to use it for...selling fabric shapes? I said no...just for me. So she took me over to her house. She said she had a better idea. So I listened and watched and was convinced. Now I'm ordering the accu cut Go cutter, but I also bought this. The Sizzix Big Kick. And a bunch of dies. The dies have thick steel blades designed to cut thick things, like fabric, foam, craft metal, chipboard, etc. It has a 3 year warranty and is on sale right now at JoAnn fabrics for $49.99. It was $59.99 last week when I ordered mine) The dies are also on sale. It is 12" wide(including the roller handle) and 15" long. The rollers are also steel. It comes with a set of cutting pads, and I bought an extra set (for $5)I bought a total of 15 dies. (For cutting fabric, wool, foam,etc) you need the "original" or "Bigz" dies. There are hundreds of them.
And then I started cutting. I fused wonder under to the back of fabrics and left the paper on (though you don't need too) and cut 3 layers of fabric backed with the fusible and paper at a time. Perfect clean cuts every time. Then i took the paper off and cut 5 layers of fabric. Just look at all my pretty shapes!
And then there are the cut outs. how great will these be for postcards!
Next I cut wool felt....no problem with 2 layers at a time. Notice Harry checking the cuts..lol!
Here is a die after cutting a bunch of wool....kind of fuzzy.
One swipe of the lint roller and voila! Clean again.
I'm gonna love this! I spent a total of $249 for the cutter, 15 dies, the extra cutting pads and shipping! Now to order the "GO" for cutting blocks.
