A Bird on the Table

A sewing bird, or third hand, is a valuable accessory that acts as your third hand for hand sewing hems, slip stitching a pillow closed and many other tasks where two hands just aren’t enough. A sewing bird clamps to the table, and then the bird clamps to your project to hold the seam taut as you stitch. This antique reproduction is quite lovely and even has a pincushion; more modern and utilitarian versions can be found at specialty sewing supply stores.
