**Please read** 25 inch plastic pads are necessary to use these dies. The shorter pads you received with your Sizzix machine will not work. The 25 inch plastic pads are sold separately here on our website. If you type "Sizzix" into the quick search box on the left, all the sizzix products will come up for you.
We are happy to be offering custom made dies for the Sizzix Big Shot cutting machine. These dies work fabulously to cut wool for rug hooking. We order our dies in large quantities so we can provide our customers with a decent priced die. We do have a whole package (cutting machine, plastic pads and a die of your choice), please see our other items to see this. However, if you already have the Sizzix Big Shot and just need to order the die, you've come to the right place. We have dies in the following sizes: #6, 7, 8, 8.5, 9 and 10. The machine cuts 3 layers of wool at one time.
A #7 die will cut 23 strips if you cut just one layer, 69 strips with 3 layers. We like to cut only two layers at a time as it puts less stress on our shoulders and the machine and it's easy to turn the handle, so that still will give you 46 strips with one turn of the handle. The 25 inch plastic pads that sandwich the dies to go through the machine are sold separately.
Do you like to hook more than you like to cut? Then this is a must have for the hooker. The dies are 6 x 25 inches with an actual cutting area of 5 x 18 inches.
At this time the company we are working with is advising me that custom orders are taking a bit longer, so wait time for this dye at this time could be 3-4 weeks.
