Hand made tailor’s ham

stretchsewer | Posted in General Discussion on

Greetings fellow sewing enthusiasts.  Years ago I made a tailor’s ham,however I lost it in the move and the resource where I got the pattern.  If any of you know of a pattern or instructions to make your own tailor’s ham, I would be delighted to make another one.  Sincerely KPL

    You can easily make your own pattern. Here is a picture of my pattern and the ham I recently made. It does not include seam allowance. I left an opening in the side (which you can see sewn up on the ham photo) for stuffing in sawdust. A carpenter/woodworker can supply you with all the sawdust you need, they make plenty and are usually happy to be able to give it away. The sawdust needs too be not so fine that it really is dust and not so fluffy that it resembles gerbil cage bedding. Then stuff. And stuff, and stuff, and stuff the ham as full as you can. It is amazing how much fits in! And sew it shut. I haven't made an outer cover for mine yet. I thought I would make the cover's opening in the wide end to slip it on.
