So my boyfriend's daughter was bemoaning the fact that she no longer had a fairy wand that she once had. I thought that was downright uncivilized for a six year old girl to be without a fairy wand, so I rummaged and rummaged until I came up with a solution. After a few false starts, I came up with this.
Here's an action shot. I guess it made her brother strong.
I took an old knitting needle and knit up an i cord out of some red sparkly yarn and slipped the needle through it. I had to bind off over the needle so I could actually get it on. I dabbed a bit of glue on the top and the bottom to glue the cover to the needle since the ends kept wanting to poke through. Then I cut two sides of a star out of some fabric left over from my shirt recon, sewed them together and stuffed it full of fiberfill to give it some structure. Then I just tied on some ribbons and stitched the star to the end of the wand and now it's magic!
