I'm Shannon, and I'd like to thank you for visiting my store! I am a full time electrical engineer and mom. I'm married with two boys. I'm also a quilter, pattern designer, and even a fabric designer! I've been quilting since the end of 2006, and designing patterns since 2010. I have a quite few completed so far, with several more in varying states of incompletion. I also have several fabric designs available from my spoonflower store. I am working on completing more patterns during my lunch hours at work, in the hopes that one day I can retire from engineering and stay home with my boys again. Your purchase of my patterns supports my ability to do that!
So now you've seen my patterns! You can see my fabric designs at http://www.spoonflower.com/profiles/shannonmac. I have a collection called Monkeying Around that goes with my pattern of the same name. And feel free to visit my blog at http://shannonmacdesigns.blogspot.com.
Sometimes you're just inspired by the weirdest thing. For this pattern, it was something someone said...and "Oops...I Scrapped My Pants!" popped into my head! It had to be made, the name was just too funny to me to let it go.
This is a VERY simple paper piecing primer, with just four straight seams making up the block. The tutorial includes plenty of photos and instructions to teach you to do foundation piecing with freezer paper, which requires no pins, just a hot iron with the steam turned off. Even if you've never paper pieced before, you can do this. And best of all, by using freezer paper, you can use one template over and over again!
