Bozena saddle bag pattern


Bozena saddle bag is a trendy semi-circle crossbody bag! The perfect companion on a night out or during the day when you only need to carry bare essentials. The pattern offers two different flap options: a rounded flap with a flip or turn-lock closure and a square flap with small rounded corners. This version looks great with a press lock closure.

Bozena saddle bag features a handle on the top of the flap and a slip pocket on the back, which is perfect if you want to keep your phone or other items easily accessible on the go. The small but spacious fully lined main compartment can hold a small water bottle, wallet, or other essentials, with additional slip and zipper pockets so you can keep your belongings organized. The adjustable shoulder strap allows wearing the bag on the shoulder or across the body.
