Does anyone love Barney ?

A while ago (ok maybe a couple of years) I stitched some little Barneys and friends , with the intention of making one or two cushion covers for my Daughter. I even managed to find some Barney fabric, which I was pretty excited about .
 However , as it is wont to do , life got in the way and the cushion covers did not get made .

Rifling through my fabric the other day, I came across the little bundle again , but at the grand old age of (almost) 8 , my Daughter has grown out of Barney and says he is for babies .

 So ,what to do ? If anyone out there knows a little person who loves the big purple dinosaur and would like these , I am happy to send them, and the fabric. There are three reasonably sized pieces of fabric , enough to make two cushion covers, especially if you piece with the stitched bits .
 I would hate for them to go to waste , so if you are interested ,please get in touch .
 Thanks .

 I will be back soon with a couple of thank yous and some stitchy updates .

My sister's son and my friend's daughter.:)
Lovely fabric,I think it was not easy to find it...
It is a very good idea to finish it and give it to charity...
Nice from you to offer it.:)

All the best.:)
(I know your little daughter is not a baby anymore ,as mine either...-9 years old-so I hope I can send her something for big girls:D)

What cute fabric and how generous of you. My Grandson who is 7 says the same thing about "Cars." He says that is all for babies!!

You could donate it all to Love Quilts and someone there will make it into a baby quilt for a sick child.

Love the fabric. A quilting friend of mine loves to make quilts out of cute children's fabric, and machine quilts them, and stores them in her sewing room for gifts.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Have you found a home for Barney yet? My niece is 1 and LOVES Barney. I was thinking of making her a quilt for Christmas.
