I am so on and off with my Fabric A-Z and for that I apologise. As Spring is in the air and leaves are finally budding in the hedgerows I thought the L in fabric had to be Leaf, remember them? And what a great start, Screenprinted Leaves Tea Towel by Sweetharvey, Etsy.

This is such a clever idea, all my shopping bags are just full of so much 'tut'. I'm not sure there are enough pockets in the world designed for various toy parts, hairbands, used tissues, stones collected to and from school, the same for leaves and small sticks.

I have a particular weakness for paisley, I really must buy some to make a summer skirt. I particularly like this lovely fresh green, Basil describes it perfectly!
|Ladybird & Four Leaf Clover Button Magnets by BreadandButtons, Etsy|
Darling Ladybirds, or Ladybugs if you're across the pond. I'm sorry but Ladybird is a far more 'delicate' name and these beauties are so cute.
|Leaping Lizards on Jungle Leaves Handmade Tote by PrettySpooky, Etsy|
This caught my eye as we have a leopard gecko, called Alvin. As much as it was bought for the children, you can guess who has to feed it the live crickets that also need to be fed. So we kind of have pet crickets to feed the pet gecko - Nice!
|Vintage Cream Cotton Trim with Fruit, Leave and Berries at acafterglow, Etsy|
This ribbon is so pretty, for some reason it reminds me of my Grandma - even though I don't recall her actually having any. Maybe it's the 'vintageness' (is that a word?) of it?
|Happy Summer New Circa 60 Beach Mod by Monaluna |
at WorthyGoodsTextiles, Etsy
What a great excuse to include some Monaluna, my forever Craft Crush! You can see the leaves, can't you?

I hope you enjoyed my interpretation of L for Leaf in Fabric, and I hope it gave you a taste of Spring - like we're finally having in London.
