Here is the super sweet Happy Basket to hold our Happy creations! The colors will make it super cute and your own! I love that it's firm and has a nice shape!

The neat thing about this too is that you can leave the handle off and close it and you still have a really neat basket to hold things! OR you can actually turn it inside out for a little hat! (Which would be a bit too big for a barbie head though.) You could leave off the smiley face too and just have a fantastic basket! 🙂

It is band heavy, but maybe that's why I like it, because it's solid and doesn't seem flimsy.

I hope you enjoy!

Band Requirements (give or take a few for (eyes and cheeks)):

Total: 646

Main basket and handle color: 472
Wrapped band colors: 174

Narrowing it down for you to explain the wrapped bands, (these are included in the totals above.)

1st Wrapped row: 16 double wrapped bands (32 color bands)
2nd Wrapped row: 16 double wrapped bands (32 color bands)
3rd Wrapped row: 13 double wrapped bands (26 color bands)
4th Wrapped row: 13 double wrapped bands (26 color bands)
5th Wrapped row: 16 triple wrapped bands (48 color)
*Each row above also has basket color bands that you pull through to hold the wrapped bands.

Handle uses 10 single wrapped bands

So… you will need 58 double wrapped bands, 16 triple wrapped bands and 10 single wrapped bands (+cheeks) in total.

Check for a rug latch hook! They are fabulous and a time (and finger) saver!
