Binkies for Boys.....

We work on lots of Binkies, for lots of reasons, and each and every one is beautiful in it's own unique way!  We have a big project ahead of us now and a deadline.  We need to create 19 binkies for boys and we need to try to have them completed by the end of March.  These will be donated to boys in Foster Care and they range in age from 2 months through 14 years.  This is a very important project for us, as they all are.  We have noticed that most of us, for whatever reason, seem to create things that are more on the girly side - maybe because we are girls and we are more naturally attracted to the pinks and flowers and frills.  But --- even before the challenge came to us, we had realized that we had to focus on more blankets for boys!  That means more plaids, more trucks and cars, more sports and just more blue.  Whatever boy means to you is just fine - what ever your definition of a little boy, a teen boy, a baby boy, or anything in between.  We want to show these young men that we care and we want to make something to make them feel special and loved as all Binkies are meant to.

If you are interested in helping with this project, please do contact us.  We can use finished blankets, fabric, thread, etc - anything needed to complete a blanket.  Just email us at  - we are hoping to hear from you!!  ;o)
