Twist these into two pinch twists so the tail sits upwards.

The basket is two 160 balloons, inflate the first one leaving a 3 finger un-inflated section.

Twist two 1 finger bubbles and twist these into pinch twists.

The second 160 inflate fully and let some air out to make it softer.
(I actually leave a 2 finger un-inflated section and then squeeze the air along the 160 balloon)
It's one of my pet hates burping a balloon.

Split the second 160 in half and twist around the two pinch twists on the first balloon.

You then have to plait the balloon.
I like to use the longer balloon as the centre starting point.

Plait all the way to the end and twist all three balloon together.
Leave approx. a 1 finger bubble in the balloon with no knot.
The knotted balloon I deflate this and tie back up.

Twist both the ends of the 160's together securely.

The handle section of the 160
you need a 1 finger pinch twist made a 1 finger length back from the end of the balloon.

Twist the pinch twist into the opposite side of the basket to a top loop of the basket.

I have tied the top section of the basket just for taking the picture.

You twist the pinch twists for the tail of the rabbit into this section.

With a slight adjustment it should look a little like the last picture.

If you wanted to add some whiskers put a puff of air into a 160 black.
The ones I used are a 5 finger bubble in length, you can make larger or smaller.
Go for the look that you prefer.

I bring the whiskers up underneath the mouth and into the top section with the two pinch twists.

You can if you like add some carrots to the basket.

And possibly a rose coloured nose might look nice for the rabbit as in one of the first pictures I posted.,
It may make for a softer looking rabbit.

The black nose makes him look a little more butch?
