Here is the trick to cutting burlap with scissors. Choose a thread line that you want to be your edge. Pull on that thread until you have pulled it all the way out, and you have a long strip where the thread once was. You may need to use your scissors a few times to get the thread out all the way. Then cut fabric in the open space.
