Try running fabric through the Big Shot machine to create your own custom pillow appliqués--or make custom fabric flowers to embellish a quilt. From sewing to quilting to home décor, the Big Shot is the perfect tool for many types of crafting. Use our Stampin' Up! exclusive dies to create die cuts and stencils with our artwork and designs for all your craft needs.

The Big Shot works with ALL competitive dies, and the steel rule dies can cut through an impressive list of 50 different materials, including fabric, foil, and chipboard.

The following materials work well when creating die cuts with the Big Shot machine. Please note the maximum thickness of several materials. As a rule of thumb, you can cut a material with your Big Shot if you can cut it using your Craft & Paper Scissors.
