I have recently started embroidering on thrift store pillowcases in stead of buying fabric, and i love it. Admittedly it shreds up your thread a little, but thread is quite a bit cheaper than fabric, so i am ok with that. Here are a couple of embroideries i did on  fabric from a 25 cent pillowcase from Salvi's-

AUDREY
 

and
GUNS N' ROSES

Both are great, but I am blown away by the gun, it looks so realistic.

I love this.

I love this even more that you did it on non-conventional fabric.

Audrey is stunning. Great Hair execution!
Guns n Roses tickles me pink!!!
