  • Get a special cutting tool, i can't remember the name, and use a pattern and washable marker to trace pattern on the felt. Good luck.

  • I would almost bet $ that some of them use a cricut machine to cut them! you can also buy pre-cut felt shapes at the craft store.

  • Your scissors would need to be very sharp with a very sharp tip.

  • You can also use Di cuts and that is most likely what they are using.
