A binky is a new homemade blanket that can be sewn, knitted, crocheted, fleece tied, or quilted. They range in size from 3 feet square up to twin bed size.
All patterns are acceptable, as long as they are soft, washable and can make it through the dryer on high; since most shelters and hospitals don’t take the time for “special care” washing. Please use a 3/8″ to 1/2″ seam allowance to ensure the stability through tough washings. We heard of a recent incident where a child stuffed batting up her nose and started to choke. Double check fringe on crocheted binkies and for pins and solid seams on sewn, quilted ones.
