MY version of the Booga Bag
This is MY Booga Bag....... well it really isn't a Booga Bag, it's what happens when you read the pattern and decide to make a "few improvements". I made it MUCH bigger and wider. I also made a inner liner out of plastic mesh canvas to give it shape.

I am using this bag as a knitting tote. Took my first out of town trip this weekend with it and it held my project and supplies wonderfully!

Well, it's hard to say exactly because I just started knitting..... I used Noro Kuereyon but 10 skeins. I made the base knitting the rows across the wide way (the pattern has short rows in the opposite direction). When I added the stitches around the base I added more per inch to give the base a little fullness, it has a slight gathered appearance to it. And finally I made it wider than higher so the top opening would be big to reach in and get things out of it easily.
