Easy Magic Tricks for Beginners - Feathers from a Handkerchief

Obtain some long feathers—the longer the better. Take off your coat and lay the feathers in the left sleeve with the quills near the wrist. Now put on your coat with the feathers still there. Borrow a large handkerchief, and after flourishing it, to show it conceals nothing, throw it over your left arm.
When you take it up again take with it one of the feathers, and when you shake the handkerchief again out drops the feather.
If the feather is large and curved it will not appear as though it had been up your sleeve. Repeat the process with suitable talk until all the feathers have been produced.
