Pattern Description:

The Alice Book Bag is a smart-looking messenger style bag. It's versatile design allows it to convert from a double shoulder strap to a single strap worn cross-body. The vertical profile of the bag offers plenty of room for a journal, magazines, and waterbottle with interior and exterior pockets for smaller items. Alice will look great made in a fresh bold print or going old school by repurposing a vintage tablecloth or curtains. This pattern is part of my Make New or Make Do(tm) sewing pattern collection.

My 7-page printable PDF instructions include color photographs, detailed diagrams, glossary and all the assembly directions you'll need to make the Alice Book Bag (12" W x 13" H x 2" D).
