How to Suture a Wound
https://www.artofmanliness.com/articles/how-to-suture-a-wound/

You’re staying in a cabin with some friends and family in the remote wilderness far from civilization. It’s quiet. Pristine. Life is good.

One morning while your buddy is splitting wood, his maul glances off the log and cuts into his leg, leaving a large gash. While the wound is large and deep, the maul didn’t hit an artery or large vein, so there isn’t a risk of him bleeding out. You get him back to the cabin to take a closer look and clean it out.

While the bleeding has stopped, there’s still a giant, gaping wound in your friend’s leg. It needs to be closed up to reduce the chance of infection and so the wound can start healing properly. You try a butterfly bandage, but it’s not keeping the wound together. It’s clear your buddy needs stitches, but the nearest doctor is a day’s trip away. Luckily, you have a suturing kit in your first aid supplies, and you know how to sew him up yourself. ---CONTINUED---

Looks good, looks like it would be pretty easy to use, but for $30.00, I'll use my sutcher kits and put up with the pain  Crying  of sewing myself up.

I was thinking, why couldn't you rig up your own zip tie bandage. Use those butterfly band aids and place the zip tie under that. Cut the zip tie in half and put one half on one side of the cut and place the other on the other side of the cut and then, zip, you're done. Or is this just wishful thinking.
