As I mentioned in my post about my quilt I went to the NEC a week or so ago. While there I got an early Christmas present from my mum, a Sizzix Big Shot.
The Sizzix Big Shot is a die cutting machine. You can buy dies for all sorts of things, such as dies for cutting and embossing paper, dies for cutting card for folding boxes, and, my favourite, dies for cutting fabric. There's loads of different dies to choose from, but I chose two to start off with. One is a clamshell shape and the other a 2.5" square. I've started cutting some fabric, but haven't made anything yet, but I'm excited to have a go soon!
