Tailor’s Pressing Ham


Pressing Ham sounds like a town in an Austen novel, but it is actually a super handy tool for any dimentional sewing like bags, hats, dolls, even jackets. This very firm ‘ham’ shaped pad lets you shape rounded seams over it while you press them. Improves the finished result and stops wrinkles.
