Easy tailors ham

Excellent pattern, very easy to follow and quick to make. I used a cotton on one side and a piece of velvet on the other side. I stuffed mine with scraps of quilting wadding. I have saved myself £15 by making my own tailors ham.

Superior to shop bought

I made both hams and am very pleased with the results. I did use the recommended wood based stuffing and it was a very messy process and I found stitching the gap difficult to obtain a really invisible finish due to both inner and outer fabrics being stitched together and given it was essential to stuff in as much as possible. Nevertheless it was worth the effort.

So Easy Tailor's Hams

I so enjoyed a very easy project (or three!) with your simple patterns for the hams. I made the two different sizes, and then a smaller one for small bags and clothing for granddaughter's toys. Made with wool and cotton, I stuffed them with a combination of cotton batting scraps and finely crushed walnut shells for flexibility. They each have their own personality!

I made the ham using cotton upholstery fabric and ordered a 1 gallon bag of wood shavings from QodeshWood; it was the perfect amount needed to stuff the ham. The pattern and instructions were great and I’m pleased with the finished project.
