    How fun! I love stitching dies!

      Yesterday, I bought a hand punch that cuts “thicker” materials. When I tried cutting a piece of felt, it gave the punch a major wedgie and obliterated the felt. Surely, this contest is a sign from the crafting gods that felt may still be an option in my future?

  • Reply Cindy Keh October 4, 2019 at 8:55 am

    I LOVE how you can use this die with paper AND felt! So many cute and creative possibilities! My favorite one is the gift card ornament! What weight or thickness of felt is best to cut with for those?

    • Reply Ellen Hutson LLC October 4, 2019 at 10:49 am

      Hi Cindy! We think more important that than thickness is the material. Wool or wool blend seems to cut the best.

    Love the felt items. I ready to pull my sewing machine out for a project for my daughter so this would be a perfect time to make a few of these also. Might adjust a bit so I could slip a gift card in some. I love the shaker card and for sure will make a few of those for sending this holiday season. Would be great starters for younger children to create.

    I posted but don’t see that it did post soooo…. I love the felt items and since I have to get the sewing machine out to make a project for my daughter I think I will make a few. Maybe make a small change so I can insert a gift card inside. Super easy to start young ones with these. For sure going to make some of the shaker cards for sending this holiday season.
