Mixed media pencil case

Are you ready for a totally different type of project today?! Let’s create a mixed media pencil case!

mixed media pencil case

What I love about “stone paper” is that you can manipulate it both as fabric and as paper. And that means it is super easy to create your own “fabric” design using mixed media techniques.

First make your designs, spray it, stamp it, paint it. doodle on it .. do whatever you like as if it was an art journal project! Then add a zipper and sew along. I kepr everything simple even for a beginner so there is no lining on the inside or tabs on the zipper sides … but still looks great!

Use a contrasting zipper color to help it pop and make sure it is a nylon zipper to make your life easier!

    You have out done yourself on this one. So beautiful. Best pencil case I have seen.. heh This would also make a great gift.. My sister loves these little pouches. Not just for pencils, but also for lip gloss, makeup, etc. She carries several of them in her tote. Thanks so much for sharing. I hope I can find some stone paper around here to try it myself. 💗💗💗

    Love everything about this! Is it machine washable? How many sheets to a package? Thank you.

    Lovely project! My 8 year old granddaughter loves pencils! And creating! I’ve offered to teach her sewing but thus far she is not jumping at the chance to learn. This looks like the perfect project to get her interested. Thank you so much!

  20. What a great project! I’m wondering if that Stone Paper is anything like Yupo that Ranger just came out with. This is a great inspiration for me, I have many canvas pouches and I’ve never thought of doing something like that to ‘decorate’ them. Will have to get to work on some. Thanks for sharing this project with us and for some great inspiration.

    Lovely! I have a couple of questions: 1) what size needle did you use?; 2) what weight thread?, and what stitch length do you recommend?
    Thank you!

    I love this project and can’t wait to make something. I ordered the paper to use but in the meantime I am wondering how the modeling paste holds up on the pencil case. I plan on making my grandkids some of these for their treasures. Love!!!!!
