The Matilda Saddle Bag is designed with the busy Mum in mind. This funky crossbody bag is the perfect size to hold your purse, phone, keys and sunglasses allowing you to remain hands free while you chase little people and do all that you need to do as a busy Mum!
You can easily add your own flair to The Matilda Saddle Bag with piping, mix and match fabric and leather or even a tassel!
The Matilda Saddle Bag is a medium crossbody bag that is big on style. The flap on this bag is a great way to display your favourite fabrics and can be easily adapted to include embroidery, applique or other ideas that take your fancy! The curvy gusset gives the Matilda a unique shape that is comfortable to carry, making it the perfect everyday bag!
