Tuck the tag ends of the strands back through the turkshead and leave them tucked underneath.

Equitman-

You could use a constrictor knot to hold the bag shut, and then put a turks head or other decorative knot over it. Opening it would be a bit tough, but it'd look pretty.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
