Whimsy & Flit are the two main characters from my children’s chapter book, Wishweaver, that came out today: Sept. 1, 2020. It is the first in the Tales of Whimsy series. Here’s a bit about the book:

In the forests of Weyburn, there had always been a Wishweaver—a spider with the magic to grant wishes. However, for many years now, wishes have gone unanswered. But why? That is the question an orb spider named Whimsy is determined to answer. With the help of her milkweed wisp friend, Flit, Whimsy will go on a journey to the old Wishweaver Oak in search of clues to solve the mystery, but the answers she seeks are buried deep in Weyburn’s past.

This pattern was shared to go alongside the book as a free pattern on my blog Ink & Stitches, and also has accompanying videos where I work through the pattern with you from start to finish on Ink & Stitches YouTube!
