The Loyalest of Friends and the Most Dependable of Ponies

About a year ago, Aunt Ali (or Aunt “Eye-yah” as Courtney’s daughter Eva calls her) introduced Eva to “My Little Ponies,” and they quickly bonded over Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash and Nightmare Moon. Since then, the Ponies have been a constant presence in our households, so when it came time to name our newest pattern for Apple iPad and MacBook cases, the answer came to mind immediately.

New applejack

If you don’t know who this is, allow us to enlighten you. She’s Applejack, the self-described “loyalest of friends and the most dependable of ponies.” Not a bad character to name your newest pattern after, even if she looks nothing at all like the My Little Pony Applejack we all had as a kid.

Our version of the Applejack is a modern, geometric case for transporting and storing your iPads and MacBooks.

We sewed up all of these Applejack cases with the new Sweet Rebellion fabrics from our awesome friends at Ink & Arrow Fabrics. The fabrics are so fun and sassy that we just finished hosting an entire week celebrating them! You can find all of those posts on our blog and the fabrics are in quilt shops across the country now.

One Last Sweet Rebellion Post!

We wanted to close out the super fun week we’ve had hosting the Sweet Rebellion sewing challenge by sharing a sneak peek of our newest pattern, the Applejack. We loved being able to use Sweet Rebellion fabrics because we can’t wait to use our new iPad and MacBook cases for ourselves!
