Making Burlap Strips?

I am making a ghillie and am currently putting all of my jute onto my netting. I also want to add burlap strips into the mix because it will cover up more space and look a little more natural in leafy environments, even with veggies.

I have been destringing my burlap into jute, but how do you make burlap strips? Do you use some sort of spray glue so the strips don't fall apart and dye it like that?

Depending on where you buy your burlap, you may notice that certain burlap strips are much "looser" than others. I can only use burlap strips when using the one kind of burlap, but if I tried it with the loose burlap strips, it will just come undone.

It varies time to time when I buy in store.
Sometimes I get to work with burlap that is super tight and does not come undone easy, tough to destring, almost a pain in the ass. That stuff has held together for over a year. Meanwhile, the "tanner" burlap I have worked with is super easy to destring. It all depends what you get at the store, as it varies. Go back and look for darkish tan almost a grey color.
