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.

Pressing ham

Easy to follow pattern. I wish I'd made on sooner. Pressing is so much easier now.

Great free pattern

I really enjoyed making the Tailor's Pressing Ham. The instructions were easy to follow and it came together in no time at all. I'm really pleased with the finished result and can't wait to start using it. Thank you Twig + Tale.

I made the Tailors Ham & Sleeve Ham with your patterns. I stuffed it with saw dust. Very practicle to use. A bit messy but worked a treat. Love them both. Thank you for the free pattern.

Brilliant

This was a great little pattern. Very easy to follow. Fantastic instructions. I now have my own pressing ham and sleeve roll in a fabric of my choice which I just love using knowing I've made it myself. I used a cotton front and wool back and filled with sawdust.
