REALLY? I wonder how 'hard' you will have to clamp it all down!

I've tried a little cutting on felt. You have to have the deep cut assembly and blade to do it. Also, you need the stiffer felt vs the soft kind. I'm not quite satisfied with the results and I will have to try it some more.

I agree, you need the deep cut blade, and the felt needs to be stiff. I have put interface on the back to make the felt stiff. It you are wanting just the shape, it's ok, not great, but it will work.

Sizzix will do it. I know my Pazzles can cut it if the felt is stiff or backed with something stiff. I imagine the Cricut would be the same, except you'd probably have to get that deep cut blade as well.
