Tailor’s Tools: Tailor’s Ham and Sleeve Roll

Ham and Sausage

I wanted to get these done to help me with all of the tiny curved seams in the clothes I’d be making in during Kids’ Clothes Week.  They were ready, but I missed my connection for sawdust so they weren’t stuffed in time.  Still I’ve two more useful tools for the craftroom.  If you are interested the tutorial I followed is on Tilly and the Buttons.  I added some barefoot roses (Tanya Whelan) by simply sewing it to the top piece of canvas with a 1/8″ seam allowance before I sewed up the darts.  Fusible interfacing would have worked too, but it seems like the little ones wander in as soon as I turn the iron on so this was easier for me.

My new iron is cordless and rests in a cradle and the ironing board almost never gets put away, which leaves space for these.
