Hildegard, I knit the Booga Bag some time ago and haven't found the bottom flimsy. Though I think I used Lamb's Pride bulky.

Great idea Jouf!

I crocheted myself a cellphone holder for a previous bag that I had, and have attached it to the booga bag I made.

I apologize for the quality of this picture -- but that's all I can do with the copier/scanner we have here at work... Basically I threaded the booga straps through the cellphone pocket I made and it just hangs inside my bag.

The cellphone pocket isn't felted -- its made with some acrylic craft yarn, that looks like the stuff they make "The Sac" from. To make the cellphone pocket I literally crocheted around and around my phone.

I did a chain stitch about 9 stitches long then a single crochet around both sides of the chain to start crocheting in the round. On each round I added a couple SC (single crochet) to each end to start making it wider and then placed my phone in what I'd made to see how much further I needed to expand before I started just going straight up.

When I got to the right height, I crocheted a strap to hang the pocket from and a flap to hold the phone in. (sorry for the sketchy instructions, but I literally just made it as I went). I'll try to get a better picture tonight.

Jesica, what a cute purse! Crocheting the pocket is a cool idea and will be quick to make. Thanks for sharing!

I made Meema's Felted Tote from Stitch 'N Bitch, but I opted not to do the kangaroo pouch (a little bag connected to the inside of the tote via I-cord). I thought my bag was a little flimsy too, but then I re-felted it and it turned out stiffer. I still wanted more support for the bottom, so I went to Michael's and bought a rectangle of plastic canvas, cut it to size for the bottom. Now I want to line the purse with fabric and I have enough fabric to make a pocket inside too. I'll have to take a pic when finished.

My first project and still not done, though I've completed many things since!

Yeah I did the exact same thing... I had mine in the washer for 3 or 4 cycles, and now it's super tiny! but sturdy. it does hold 3 skeins of lambs pride worsted, in addition to my wallet, keys, and cell phone (as i found out when i went to the LYS yesterday, and the lady ran out of bags!)

Scroll back to the first page --- I added a photo of the cellphone holder I crocheted for my Booga bag. -- Hopefully that helps if you're trying to make one.
