My roommate needed some graduation presents for friends who are graduating high school, so we went to the local thrift store and found these:

This is before they were washed...

Given haircuts...

and drawn on. Excessively.

After a few hours of work, we ended up with a whole new batch of custom-made ponies by us for her friends!

From left to right, that's:
Liberty Spikes pony with random drawings about what her and her friend did together through high school (I did the hair, friend did the drawing)
Torchwood pony for a friend who loves Dr. Who and Torchwood (I did everything)
Mohawk pony with a bloody quote from a horror movie (Friend did everything)
Our personal favorite, Emo/Scene pony for a very conservative guy friend. The "K" on his rump is a symbol of some club she met the guy friend in (I did the hair and tie, friend did everything else)
Girly pony with a tapeworm drawn on her because the recipient calls herself a tapeworm while playing foursquare (I did everything)
Foursquare pony with random foursquare-related drawings (friend did everything)

And here are some quick up-close shots of my favorites:

Torchwood pony

Liberty Spikes pony

Emo/Scene pony

Thanks for taking the time to look at this random post! I realize these are not as good as anyone else's toys by any means, but we had a lot of fun making them either way.

Hee hee!  I bet that was sooo much fun redoing those ponies!  I grew up loving the my little ponies and always wanted to design my own.   Grin

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

Those are awesome!! Wow! That was such a great idea!

I sew, paint unfinished wood, sketch, make jewelry, crochet a bit, loom knit, and sew. Pretty much if I can get my hands on it to learn, then I will know it. Maybe not perfectly, but enough for a hobby.

I have to say my favorite is the emo scene pony! He's awesome! You pulled it off so well. (a few of my friends are sort of emo)

Lol, those are cool. I have some friends from a class of mine who would love these!

And I know what club your friend was in in HS - Key club!
