We are looking for volunteers to make blankets out of fleece. You do not need to sew! All you need is a pair of scissors and a little bit of time.
Instructions are easy: Using the scissors you cut 1" wide strips like fringe into the edges of the fabric (about 4-5" deep), then simply tie the fringe in a square knot. You can also layer the fabric, using two pieces of fleece placed one on top of the other, cut the 1" strips through both layers of fabric, then tie the corresponding strips from layer 1 and layer 2 together in a square knot.
Helpful Tip: If you know any quilters, ask for their help too! You can cut the fringe quicker by using a rotary cutter and cutting mat such as what quilters use. https://binkypatrol.org/article.cfm?id=267
It's an easy project that can be done as a family, a group project or individually.

Binky Patrol is devoted to reaching out to needy children, including HIV-positive, drug-addicted, neglected, abused, or children experiencing trauma in any way. Binky Patrol volunteers bring a caring, loving touch by creating and delivering handmade blankets, "binkies", to enrich the children's lives and to meet their most basic needs of warmth, security and comfort.
Binky Patrol's unique way of touching a child's life includes many mediums. To reach them, "binkies" are distributed through hospitals, shelters, and social service agencies. "Binkies" are to be given as gifts and are not recycled in the agencies.
Binky Patrol's volunteers as well as chapter leaders make blankets which can be crocheted, sewn, knitted, tied, and even quilted for ill and traumatized children.
