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.

-I give up on making TOL pendants.  If anyone would like to have my stone chips, wire and ect.  I would gladly trade it all for some knitting/crochet stuff.

-Currently crafting.....A Weasley blanket.  I'd love some squares made from fellow Craftsters.

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.
