Take a similar piece of material that is larger than the hole by a good margin. Place it on the INSIDE of the bag and stitch it in place. And don’t be shy with the stitching: let your adventures shine. I’ve done this on a number of bags that have made unaided descents and it works out fine. If you want you can darn across the borders too (darning just means running stitches over and over it).
