I've tried millions of times and have been unsuccessful. What I do is cut it on paper and then trace it on felt and cut it with my hand. I don't have a deep cut blade so that might be why but the reason I think it doesn't cut is because it doesn't stick onto the mats very well.

I tried using both types of blades and never could get it to cut correctly.

This is what I know. You have to use a high quality wool felt(the cheap Wal-mart craft felt doesn't work), and you have to use the iron on fusible webbing on the back. And yes, the deep cutting blade using multiple cut function is very helpful.

You have to really want to cut felt!!

Cool I spent a whole weekend cutting out felt for a project for my sister. The best way is to put Heat 'n Bond on the back. Put the felt on the mat felt side down. You will need a deep cut blade and multiple cuts. If you go to aboverubiesstudio.com she has a download that will tell you what kind of blade, pressure, cuts, etc. to use for all kinds of paper and other things like felt, foam, etc. It is about 24 pages long, but has been the best thing for me. I use it all the time. The one thing about the felt is that it leaves a lot of fuzzies on the mat, but I just cleaned it off with a baby wipe and some hard rubbing, but it was fine for use after. If you are not going to apply the felt to something else after you cut it, you will need to use something other than the heat 'n bond. Get an iron on interfacing or stablizer. I cut out about 200 stars, hexagons, etc. and it worked great.
