The core slipped out. You need to lock stitch the bury or whip the throat, same as splicing hollow core.

I've see this before, on boats and on lines that were put in the washing machine.

My wife made some bags with phifertex (spell check please) and we throw them in the washer. Mine are either whipped or lock stitched on all splices.
