With cotton canvas you don't need to worry too much about ordinary needle
holes - a good soaking usually shrinks them down. You could of course use
glue - often heavy cotton canvas is a bit heavy for a domestic sewing
If you are going to patch it, make a sandwich of the tent fabric - do a
patch both sides. Also, cut your patch with rounded corners as they tend
not to peel the way square corners do
I've done it surprisingly sucessfully using a small bit of duck (aka
duct?) tape - the reinforced, grey, very sticky stuff. Zero hassle and
reasonably long lasting, if inelegant!
This was on a man-made fabric, I have to say, which might well be less
stickable-to than canvas.
