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!

thanks.  it seems pointless to buy a toy like that when some ribbons, glitter, and any stick-like object would be just as good or better.
