Sew-On (DVD and Gimmick) by Roddy McGhie
After the whirlwind success of the eye-wateringly visual 'FLUX', magicians everywhere have waited in eager anticipation of what would come next. Full 52 is delighted to announce that the wait is finally over. It's here! It's offbeat, original, highly visual and it's not a card trick! It's 'Sew-On'!
EFFECT: You display a small bag with a spare button and some cotton thread inside, just like the kind you would get with a new shirt or jacket. You hold the bag to the front of your shirt/coat/jacket/hoodie (whatever you're wearing) and give a little rub. Incredibly, the button and thread penetrate through the bag and magically sew themselves right on to the fabric! But, you don't really want a button sewn in such an odd place... it looks weird! So, you very visually (and quite casually) 'pop' the button over to a more discreet location on the inside of the garment! They actually SEE it move to a different place and everything is completely examinable!
For the past three years Roddy has been working and honing this stunning magical moment into the direct and succinct mini-illusion it is today. There is so much mystery in such a short space of time - from the penetration through the bag, to the magical stitching, to the visual relocation of the button - all of this done cleanly and effortlessly with no extraneous props or set-up. It's for all of these reasons that magician's everywhere have marveled at this most stunning and elegant moment of pure, offbeat, close up magic... and then, once informed, been utterly delighted by the method!
Along with the comprehensive DVD teaching the entire routine in full detail, 'Sew-On' contains absolutely everything you need to get going, right out of the box.
"Roddy's 'Sew-On' is as good as it gets; fantastic premise, ultra-visual effect and a wonderfully deceptive method. A 'must buy!'"
