Tea stencil - help!

I’m planning to clip a teapot and a tea cup into my pony’s rump when he gets clipped on the 23rd (clipping = shaving, it’s done in winter on horses under a heavy workload, or who just sweat a lot, to make it easier to cool them out properly after a workout. Don’t worry, clipped horses get to wear extra warm blankets to replace the hair they lose!). But I can’t seem to find a decent pice of clip art (no pun intended) that I can blow up to use as a stencil for clipping. everything either looks odd once it’s blown up (i’m needing to blow it up to about 10″×10″), or it’s just the wrong shape for a round pony butt.

Does anyone know of any decent teaware clip art, ideally with fairly curvy shapes that would flatter a round pony butt?

You’re going to have a giant My Little Pony when you are finished!!! I don’t know why, but I am squeeeing like a child over this. :)

and he’s not really THAT giant, haha. He is technically a pony as he is only a hair over 14hh, and the cap between pony and horse height is 14.2hh. I just wish he had more white on him so I could make him a real MLP and dye his white rainbow! sadly, he’s only got a few small white spots, not enough to bother dying. So he gets “cutie marks” instead! :)

He loves playing dress up, and he loves DAVIDs Tea (especially when I give him a bag to play with, haha)

i bought the fly bonnet (hat) at a tack store, I have no idea how to knit/crochet actually (and if I did, Java would have a LOT more crazy coloured fly bonnets than he does already! haha!)

Sadly, my mini clippers crapped out on me, and the big ones were just TOO big for the detail work, so I wasn’t able to get his teapot and teacup to work :( So he’s sporting a (wonky) shamrock on one side and a heart on the other <3
