    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Kathy wants to know: "What brand of die is best for cutting felt?"
    A: Any type of die you have should cut through felt. The type of felt you have will make a difference, though. Felt with some wool content will cut the best - choose 100% wool, or a wool/rayon blend. Acrylic felt will tend to pull, or not cut completely.
     
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Brenda has a tip for the Nugget Cake tutorial: "I couldn't find any circular bases for the cake, so I folded some sturdy rectangular prisms to make a tiered square cake."
