wool and cotton
What was your inspiration?
I bought a ham but as you can see in the picture it is quite small and I really wanted a bigger one but I could not buy one so I made it.
What are you most proud of?
getting the ham well packed.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Ease stitch the smaller upper section of the wool and the cotton separately at the stitching line I like to use the crowding technique where you place your finger behind the sewing machine foot, this prevents the fabric from feeding -Gretchen Hirsch shows you how in "Sew Retro: Starlet Suit Jacket" another of craftsys great classes.
make sure to stitch around the ham twice for extra strength
