This is a good fix. Heat shrinking tubes also make good aglets. :)

Aglets: The name of the thingy on the end of a lace that no-one knows :)

You can also buy crimpable metal ferrules (another good word) which you could use for this.

Cool! Thanks for help with the name, because I am brazilian and neither in portuguese I knew the name :)

Lol, no problem. Most people don't know what it's called. I freely admit the only reason I remember is the song from Phineas and Ferb. Once you hear it, it will be stuck in your head forever.

also a quick blast on the end with a lighter will heat seal the loose threads if no other items are to hand

True. Don't use superglue though. I tried that once to "crisp up" the end. It got VERY hot and smoked out noxious fumes.

Sometimes superglue and fabrics just don't get on well :(

Sorry, but in this case, the thread is made with cotton and it is no possible to apply fire
