Default How do you make a reg purse sturdy?

So I bought a purse from Juicy Couture and Dooney and Bourke that Molly fits into. Unfortunately they are soft bottoms, so she sags in the purses. What do you do to turn a reg purse into a doggy purse?

Thanks!

Great question!! I haven't found a carrier yet that looks like a purse ... and haven't found a purse that Poppy wouldn't drown in.

I buy a doggie purse. LOL Trust me, I've tried with the Juicy purses and my Gigi was much more comfortable in her doggie one(and it almost looks better.... )

If you want a carrier that looks like a purse you should look at the Kwigy Bo carriers. I just got one for Sophie. They have lots of pockets so you can carry your wallet, keys, and whatever else you want. Here is a pic of the one we have...

If you place a rigid piece of thin plywood type material,it will work. Something about the thickness of backing baord for a picture frame,1/8 th inch. cut to fit in the bottom of a purse will work. Idid that for a cloth carry all bag to keep it from sagging in the middle.

As Jennifer mentioned above, the Kwigy Bo carriers actually look like purses and have lots of side pockets to fill up with stuff.

Go to JoAne Fabric or Michael's Crafts. Buy the most ridgid plastic canvass the size of the bottom that you want ( its trim-able with a scissors) then depending on your desire. Make a cover for it.....like a pillowcase of fabric. I would use the pre-quilted fabric as it would make a slight cushion. You could make several covers for the "floor". And the entire floor and cover are all washable. They might even work in more than one bag if the sizes are close. Good luck. If you do not sew you might be able to do this whole project with the iron on seam tape.

Thanks to everyone for your replys. I'll have to look online for the Kwigy Bo carriers. I stopped buying dog carriers cuz they never had enough pockets. Now I want to return the D&B bag.

Jennifer, did you buy directly from their store, or somewhere else?
