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!

  1. Dear Vicky your new project is awesome! I always find it exciting to have and use things that are unique and totally your creations, and this project is the perfect idea for that! I didn’t know up to now about stone paper, but now I love it! Thank you for sharing!

  2. 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. ???

  3. 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!

  4. This looks so easy to do and I have lots of ideas from your video on projects to make. Thank you so much for the simple instructions to a create wonderful art project.

  5. Vicky, this is awesome!! I already know this stone paper, it’s such a crazy cool stuff! I really have to try this pouch by myself, super great project!!

    1. You can order it in the US from Amazon or Cheap Joe’s. It is sold under the name of Terraskin.

  6. 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.

  7. Aww Vicky, this pouch is beautiful! I love it and I love that you have done something totally different. Please make more…..Thank you

  8. 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!

  9. 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!!!!!
