Fun embroidery/bookbinding project I did over the weekend using my hellebore watercolor illustration. I transferred the image to the bookbinding cotton cloth using Iron-On transfer paper from Strathmore and added some embroidered details. I bought these sheets many, many years ago from Amazon, I don't know if they still sell them. 
If you want to try your hand at book binding this is a good step-by-step tutorial.
