was juts wondering, i would like to make some curatins covered in stars for DD's bedroom, the biggest gold fabric stars i can find are 20mm which is a bit on the small side, i was thinking more 5-10cm.

Can you cut fabric with a sissix machine?

saw tip in a mag that says to spray fabric with stiftner(sp) and dry b4 putting in szx.

cool - sounds great, do you think if a stuck wonderweb to one side of the fabric then cut this would work too, it would help to stiften the fabric up too.

my next question would be anyone with a sizzix and a star cutter who'd liek to help out! willing to pay!!

think it would work.
I have a sizzix but not a star die. Anorak has a star one.

Hello, only just seen this. Yes, you can cut fabric. You're supposed to put a piece of paper under the fabric to stiffen it.

I do have a star die, it's the small sizzix star die, it's about an inch and a quarter wide, five points. If you want to see I have posted a page on the mumsnet card gallery in the swaps section.

And I do sell die-cuts, so you are welcome to proposition me . CAT me if you want to talk about it.
