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.
