The Sixth Finger Stiletto---a NIFTY Sewing Tool!!!

I was digging through my sewing caddy and came upon a tool I forgot I had since I hadn't used it in quite some time. The trade marked name for it is the "SixthFinger Stiletto". It is great to use when you need to get in a tight space and save your fingers from being burned or in risk of piercing by your sewing machine needle (see the pictures on the package).  Well after rediscovering this little tool I'll definitely not let it out of my sight again. In the last few days I've been using it to work out puckers when easing/sewing in sleeves, help me keep control of sewing narrow hems, and when pressing tight corners. It's definitely an invaluable tool!!!! I don't know if you own one but I definitely suggest you give it a try, especially if you feel you could use a "sixth finger" (wink)!!!


  1. I have this tool. It definitely comes in handy.


  2. Interesting tool. It's like the sewing awl! Thanks for sharing!

  3. With a name like Sixth Finger Stiletto who could resist? I can't decide if it sounds like a spy device, or maybe something a little bit naughty!

  4. Wow I need one of those! Love the name! LOL!

  5. I have an award for you on my blog. Oops. And I just noticed that you have one on your blog already, or is that from me? Anyway, if it's not, you can accept this award again. I did. I've been awarded it at least twice. It's only in my sidebar once, though. Of course, don't feel obligated to. At least you know I was thinking of you.

  6. I did not know that tool, but I'll definitely ask about it on my next visit to the city.


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment and for following me on my 10,000 Hour Sewing Challenge:)
