Tatted Heart Design By Betsy Evans

I was going through my collections tonight and came across a heart I tatted between 2000 and 2005. Does anyone know who the designer is?  I have seen this same design on Etsy for sale but there was no credit made to the designer.  I thought this same heart was in a bookmark of different colors.

I want to thank Gina B, Aileen, Edna and Maureen L for their emails letting me know this is a Betsy Evans design from her Rainbow Heart Bookmark, you can find her pattern here.

Now what irks me is I have seen this design on sale on Etsy and Betsy was not even credited for the design, Why do people do that, I will never understand? Do they really think the rest of us do not know it is not their design.

  1. That's a very pretty heart, and I'm sure I've seen the pattern before. I'm terrible with names, though... unless I've tatted the design repeatedly! Good luck in your search!

  4. Very Pretty heart with this thread. I've never seen a pink thread with silver metallic running through it. This is a favorite heart of mine to tat. I have also seen Betsy's heart on Etsy, but can't remember where right now.

  5. You can buy the pink and silver thread from the lacemaker, it comes in all colors with the metallic in it. I was never a fan of any of the metallic threads. Of course, when I tatted this heart I was only 2 years tatting.

  6. I should probably write a post about this sometime but it occurs to me that crediting the designer was not common in the past and that was largely because people made things and sold them at craft shows and bazaars and fundraisers. It wasn't something done internationally like etsy and ebay and artfire. People generally knew the pattern came from a certain book or company but individual designer recognition is still a relatively new bit of seller etiquette. I'd say in the past decade particularly. I think it's an offshoot from "designer clothing". People didn't used to focus on the designer that much. It was the execution of a design, the skill of the maker, that was the focus of attention. Somebody remind me when I get back to blogging to explore this more. LOL!

  8. You really should send a message directly to the offending seller. I think I've seen the offending piece. This seller is herself very outspoken about others respecting her designs and she should be put on notice that she is violating another person in the same way she complains about being violated.

  9. I don't think that is my place to do that, if it was one of my designs, I would jump right in

  10. I hope you don't feel like I stepped on your toes or slighted you in any way but I didn't have any problem with passing along the designer information to the person who used this pattern to make a piece she is selling. She quickly and graciously credited the designer on both her regular blog and her etsy sight. I feel like you have led to proper crediting of another person's design. Thank you for putting the information out there.
