My absolute obsession with pups and my love of sewing developed into Boofers&Blankies.
I’ve been sewing with my grandmother ever since I was around 10 years old and one of my favorite things to make are blankies. I’ve made a baby blanket for just about every baby I know, and then I realized that my own baby needed a blankie too.
My dog Gabby is absolutely obsessed with blankies. As soon as you walk in the door, she’ll come running with her blankie in her mouth, tripping the entire way, just to come and greet you. She sleeps on her blankies every night.
One day I realized that if my dog loves them so much, maybe other dogs do as well.
Let me tell you, I was not wrong.
I started making blankies for the dogs in my life and realized that I could do so much more.
Boofers&Blankies is a small business that creates dog blankets and donates blankets to shelter animals. For every blanket bought, I donate a blanket of the same pattern to local (and non-local) animal shelters.
Shelter animals deserve all the love in the world, but unfortunately, they don’t have many possessions of their own. If I can bring some comfort and joy to even a few of these animals, it would mean the world to me.
Basic blankies are made from flannel fabrics. They are washed and dried, then packaged and shipped to you. I will donate the second blankie to a shelter near me, or I will send it to a shelter of your choice.
To purchase a blankie, go to Etsy and search BoofersandBlankies, or, click this link.
If you are not happy with your purchase, you will get a full refund. All I ask is that you donate the blanket to a shelter of your choice.
The blankies will come in two sizes, Large and Small, but I will accept custom orders for different sizes as well.
How Can I Help?
The best way to help is to purchase a blankie from our Etsy shop. If you do not have a dog of your own, but would still like to donate a blankie to a shelter dog, you can choose the “Donate Only” option in our store. This will allow you to purchase a blanket that will be donated to a shelter animal in need.
A standard large blankie will cost $20, medium will cost $18, and small will cost $16. Custom orders will be decided mutually between myself and the purchaser.
If you would like to place a custom sizing order, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or, contact me directly through my Etsy shop.
