What type of material can work as strudy purse structure besides plastic canvas? Would cardboard (the kind you find next to the crayons) work?

I wouldn't risk it, cardboard might get soggy and nasty in the rain. Plastic canvas sounds like the better option.

I agree on not using cardboard.  It really does not hold up very well at all.
You can - for a bigger price tag - use a few layers of timtex fused together.  That is really stiff as well but I think pc is usually the best way to go sad to say.
