This badge bit (BB) is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in textiles.

In this project, you will make and sew a pressing ham. Also called a tailor's ham, this is a helpful item for pressing garments with curved seams.

Minimum requirements:
  - sew a pressing ham
  - must be cotton or linen and wool fabric
  - must have a fully compressed filling (about 2 pounds of wood shavings)

To document completion of the BB, provide proof of the following as pics or video (< 2min):
  - The materials you will use for your pressing ham
  - Sewing the ham
  - Stuffing the ham
  - Your finished pressing ham
You can find free patterns and instructions at the following websites:
