This invention relates to sewing devices and
more particularly to a new and improved “palm”
for the protection of the hands during sewing op
erations. Its intended use is to rende-r the forc
ing of a relatively large needle through two or
more plies of canvas, leather or other material to

be engaged by the tool employed. In the pres
ent invention a protecting pad is formed from
substantially rigid material which will not ma

degree of protection for the user.

In the present invention the plate is so shaped
as to be comfortably gripped and by reason of its
peculiar shape is easily held between the thumb

is easily forced through the material to be sewed.
