Giveaway: Win a Table Runner

Hello friends!

I am participating in Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day today (well, this whole week, really). Go check it out, there are so many wonderful handmade items offered by bloggers all over the world, as well as crafting and sewing supplies.


I am offering TWO things from my shop today: a table runner and a tablet cover. (You can enter the tablet cover giveaway here.)

Here is your chance to win the table runner! The winner of this giveaway can choose one table runner from the selection below ($42 value).

My table runners are thoughtfully handmade with a combination of bold cotton prints and natural linen, for a look that is both earthy and modern. My Wonky Stripes table runners feature large stripes of linen and cotton. A layer of soft flannel and a crisp cotton linen keep them sturdy and flat. They measure approximately 36 by 16 inches. My Quilted table runners feature one catchy cotton print, quilted in a large zigzag and bound with natural linen. A layer of cotton batting makes them cozy and soft. They measure approximately 42 x 17 inches.

Note: This giveaway is for a ready-to-ship table runner, not a custom item.

You can see all my table runners in stock in my Jenny Bartoy ~ Handmade Designs shop on Etsy.


The winner of the giveaway may choose ONE table runner from the following options:


Purple and Queen Anne's Lace


Moroccan Tiles


Red Poppies


Chartreuse and Dots


If you're new to my little blog, please take a look around. I create fiber art with recycled materials like stamped coffee sacks. I also design textile items that I hand-make with a mix of modern fabrics and linen. I do a lot of custom work and, when time allows, stock my Etsy shop with new designs.

You can find me on Etsy, Facebook and Pinterest. I also co-write the crafty blog Stumbles & Stitches with my friend Angel. I look forward to meeting new friends!

Marinus Home

I am very excited to announce that Jenny Bartoy ~ Handmade Designs items will soon be sold in a real life brick-and-mortar shop!

Marinus Home is a brand new store opening in Poulsbo, Washington on Friday, May 3. Marinus Home is a lifestyle brand with a focus on fresh vintage goods. Their collection of vintage and locally made treasures range from simple classic country style to a more industrial vintage vibe.


Marinus Home Grand Opening


Here are the items I just shipped to Talitha for the opening of Marinus Home: a selection of coaster sets and fabric baskets with a somewhat vintage and nautical feel.

My family is headed to the Kitsap Peninsula in early summer for a camping trip. We'll definitely be swinging by Poulsbo to check out the shop! If you happen to visit, tell Talitha I sent you and please let me know what you think of my stuff in her shop.
