Nice bag!
I have put a zipper in a sophie.  I gave it as a gift and didn't take photos but I have an other sophie I made that I think I will add a zipper to.  I'll try to post a before and after.  I lined it with dupioni Silk ( I too think you gotta line it to add a zip) and loved how the zipper gave it structure. 
BTW I am having a hard time finding a magnet snap for another sophie I made any tips on where to look and how you attached it, Andrea?

I have made sophie using cascade 220 and lambs pride BULKY.  I liked the  finished texture of the cascade but it was floppy and I had to line it to give it shape - plus I felt like the handles were weak too.  I modified when I used the lambs pride I made the base a bit shorter and a good deal narower and didn't decrease the same, I would often only decrease 4 instead of 8 stitches one on each corner, the ones on the outside -hope that makes sense.  I did the decreases more often and knit fewer rows.  The results were a thick bag with sturdy handles and firm shape.  The yarn is twice as think as the 220 so vysewa it would be like doubling the 220, just easier and I think that Lamds pride has more fun colors.  It will stand up on its own it is so sturdy.  Oh I used bigger needles on the base to make picking up the stiches easier.  I will try to post photos someday.

Gracella you could do the chain with your fingers I tried it that way and it looked OK.  Or there are usualy oddles at thrift stores for like 30 cents.  I'll measure my straps for you later, they were a little long on the baby I gave them too.
I used the lambs pride and dyed it with coolaide and they turned out so cute.  I have the weight of the yarn needed so you don't have to dye too much of it.  I'll find the numbers if anyone is interested.  I gave the booties away for christmas but will post photos when I make another pair.
