Binky Patrol - comforting covers - because I care

What’s a BINKY?

A binky is a homemade blanket that can be sewn, knitted, crocheted or quilted. They range in size from 3 feet square up to twin bed size. (Sometimes we get requests for smaller binkies, 2′ x 2′ for our little Preemie babies, stroller size and our Binky Angels.)

All patterns are acceptable, as long as they are soft, washable and can make it through the dryer on high; since most shelter and hospitals don’t take the time for “special care” washing. Please use a 3/8” to ½” seam allowance to ensure the stability through tough washings.

Who is invited?
The Community

We are asking anyone who would like to come out and join us in making blankets for this organization. Our blankets will stay in our area. We will be making simple blankets and quilts by machine. There will be help if you want to learn. Bring a sewing machine and your tools, scraps if you have them and come along. The Brazos Valley Stitchers will be there as well to show their beautiful hand stitches.

So sewing, knitting, crocheting and embroidery. Even if you can’t sew you can help. Looking forward to a huge turn- out.
