My friend and I are making our own ghillie suits this weekend. We are covering our backs, back of our legs, our arms, and making a head piece. I already have the netting put on my bdu's but I realized that 1,500 feet of jute probably won't be enough for both of us. So my question is how many feet of jute would be required for the both of us?

Not really to sure on the "normal" ammount. But when I make mine, or help a buddy make theirs, I will usually go to a fabric shop and get 3-4 yards of burlap. Shread it and then dye it. That is usually more than enough to make a full suit.

I only put jute on my back, legs, arms and head as well.

I believe it took about 9-10 packs of that jute you can get at walmart or home depot. Which I believe is 190 feet each.

Therefore, double that amount and get around 18-20 of those 190ft packs of jute. Worst case is, you run out, and just need to go out and get a few more. Heck, I had to go back four to five times as I kept running out. Was not until the 10th pack or so that I finally had enough.
