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!
Drop the Yarn and no one gets hurt!

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.
