Smelly Bum Fridge Magnet
Needle and Thread
Powdered makeup blush
This free craft project shows you how to make a faux bum fridge magnet.
You can change your bums into "Smelly Bums" by adding a few drops of fragrant oil to the filling. Pickled bums were very popular around 10 years ago and Rita used to sell literally 1000's of these at craft fairs.
Start by cutting a small piece of stocking into a square approx 3 inch by 3 inch. Stitch around the outside of the square in a rough circle in a running stitch. Leave the needle in as you are going to use this to draw up the circle.
Push a piece of filling with a few drops of fragrant oil onto it (you can use cotton balls) into the stocking/hosiery. Push it in well so that it is quite firm you may need to add more filling or even take some out until it is the right size.
Draw up the circle and secure it with a few stitches. Do not break the thread. Take the needle and thread and push it from the back to the front and come up 1/2 way over the ball. Then take your thread to the back. This will form the bum (shall I say it?) crack.
Secure with a few stitches at the back and cut off the thread. Finish the bottom off with a few dabs of blush.
Trim the back of the bum so it's nice and flat and glue on the magnet for a fun fridge magnet.
