Tips for cutting felt  

Felt is really hard to cut even as an adult, so make sure you have really sharp scissors.  If you are trying to cut intricate designs then iron on some freezer paper to the rear.  it gives the felt stability making it easier to cut and you can remove it and reuse it.

You can also use an iron on permanent stabiliser such as bondaweb and this will make it suitable for cutting in a machine such as a cricut and also make it less floppy for certain of these projects.
