One is made from a faux mudcloth that I bought at Joann's quite awhile ago. I liked it so much I bought the remainder of the bolt. This is my first time using it. The other is a printed burlap that I also got from Joann's and I paired it with velvet and a fancy fringe trim because I thought it was a great contract. They are both lined with black linen. I did not use a pattern I just created it as I went. I have another piece of the burlap that is printed in a French Theme with little Eiffel towers and other French themed items. I will use that to make a bag for myself. I really like the velvet and burlap look.
