Teddy Bears With eBosser


I just whipped up these teddy bears last night!

Yesterday I told you I was going to be working with Craftwell and their eBosser.

What is the eBosser?  It is a fully automatic and large format embossing & die cutting system!  The eBosser is universally compatible with most cutting dies & embossing folders! Use your favorite folders & dies or our large format embossing folders to create projects fast & easy!
 One of the features I really wanted to test with my eBosser was the cutting fabric option. 
 The machine will cut six layers of fabric in one pass!  I used an Accuquilt die featuring a teddy bear and duck.
 Each bear was cuter than the next!  Look at how my Eiffel Tower bear is perfectly centered!  That was a happy accident!
 Of course I tried out some leather.
 One of my bears now is half leather.  I think I might just turn them into ornaments!
 Oh, I sewed up a duckie too!

Hi

Love what you have done! I have those dies too and an ebosser and I do voluntary sewing at the School where I work - and I thought how wonderful to share this idea with 13-18 year olds learning to sew so my question to you is did you turn any seams or just stitch them together? Love Lou

I did stitch them without a seam. Felt as the back side was super easy to sew through and the fabric did not unravel, so I was quite pleased! You could iron on some fusible webbing to the fabric before you cut it, if the fabric edge is too loose and unravels.
