Burlap is abit thick for silicone.. if your on a budget just use some old bed sheet fabric & cut them into small strips overlapping each join

all it needs to do is make a mechanical lock and it will increase the tear strength on that joint...
You can embed fabric into the silicone Join's to increase the tear strength, but you will need a decent thickness to do this.
