I used this at Scarborough Faire. I had a kid up from the audience, and I performed it with a little red silk. It was presented as a "magic depends on your point of view" kind of thing. My assistant would snag the silk when it landed on the stage, and I would "borrow" another one from him. It was not a long routine. However it had an interesting punch line. I explained to the audience that I would have fooled them as well, then I did the typical TT vanish, explaining that the trick had looked like this to the child. I would make a "toss over the head" move and the audience would turn to see where the hanky went.

I then retrieved it from the sleeve of a spectator.

It was great fun.

Turns out that Gary Darwin wrote something similar to this up a while back.

That is great! You would be amazed at what people will believe some days, with or without direction (or misdirection) of any kind... Mind if I steal that presentation? Also, if you have a resources for the Darwin version, please do share.

Go ahead and use it. A very important part of the interplay was my assistant. Also the timing of whole thing was crucial.

Gary Darwin wrote a couple of books on the thumb tip. It's in one of those. I don't have a copy of it at the moment.
