I made these pillows for gifts this Christmas. One is burlap on both sides, and the other has a faux fur back. I added lace to the monogram to add even more texture. I didn't use fabric, because I wanted to keep it pretty neutral.
The lace monogram is the Circle Monogram Applique from Boutique Fonts. The other design is the Split Alpha from Planet Applique (click here to get 20% off your first order from Planet Applique).
Don't you just love burlap?! :)
