Do you like to hook more than you like to cut? Then this is a must have for all rug hookers! 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 have dies in the following sizes: #3,4,5,6,7, 8, 8.5, 9 and 10. The machine cuts 3 layers of wool at one time, all perfectly cut strips with very little waste. A #10 or 1/2 inch die will cut 9 strips if you cut just one layer, 27 strips with 3 layers.
#10 strips measure 1/2 of an inch.
25 inch plastic pads are necessary to use these dies. The shorter pads you received with your Sizzix machine will not work as they will not extend the length of the cutting area. The 25 inch plastic pads are sold separately here on our website or as an add on option above.
Frequently asked questions:
