I made the ham for a coworker who's leaving to go to grad school (we're part of a working group called the "fighting hams" - don't ask me why, I have no idea!). Well, I got a little carried away and ended up making one for everyone.



Here's a detail shot so you can see the stitching.


And the backs - I cut circles of cardstock that matched the fabric on the front and used my handy-dandy stamp to put my name on it.


I handed out the hams today and they were a HUGE hit - everybody loved them! I mean really, who wouldn't love a felt ham embroidery for your highly professional office Smiley

These are hilarious! What a sweet--er, savory?-- gift for your co-workers.

BTW, I love the idea of the custom stamp/cardstock back to label the pieces. I may have to try something like that in the future.

Thanks, everyone! The hams were indeed very well received - and the people that aren't in my group were very jealous and have started requesting embroideries of their own  Grin
