Tailor’s Ham

I had so much fun making this tailor’s ham and sleeve sausage. They were so easy to make because the directions were so simple and clear. We found wood chips at Tractor Supply that worked perfectly.

Hams

Easy to make and clear instructions! And my local pet shop had the wood shavings. Couldn’t have been easier!

Tailor’s Ham

Great pattern; easy to follow instructions. Love using up odd bits of fabric to make useful items and stuffed my ham with all the scraps from my sewing waste bin. I have wanted a pressing ham for many years, just never got around to it. I have a sleeve board so will wait to make the sleeve one until I have more scraps accumulated. Thanks!

Impress yourself!

Thank you for this lovely free pattern. I just made both from scraps of an old blanket and sawdust packed in very tight. Easy to follow pattern and works a treat!

Thank you

What a useful addition to my home sewing ‘kit’. Thanks Twig and Tale for the free pattern and notes on making. Used scraps of heavyweight curtain fabric and carrier bag+ of cut fabric scraps ( I nearly sent to recycling) to fill it! Hard work getting the filling in, but pleased with result😁.

Great!

As a beginner at sewing I never knew this existed. How did I live without it?
The pattern and directions were wonderful!

Simple, easy, works great

I found myself in need of a tailor's ham... I found this pattern to be clear, elegant with proper instructions. Impressed by the quality for a free pattern.

great pattern

The hams were easy to make and are very useful in pressing curved seams and sleeves. I appreciate this free pattern.

So happy to have one again

I made a tailor ham over 40 years ago. I used it so much it fell apart. I wasn't going to pay the retail cost for one for the amount of fabric & other material a ham is needed when you can make one out of material remnants. I just made due. I'm so glad I found this pattern along with the sleeve pattern. I have been wanting to make another one for year's. I finally did. I also made the sleeve ham too. So excited to have them in my sewing acronical again.
