Is it two bits of material come apart, or an actual rip/tear within one piece of material? If it's the latter, have you considered tape? And if you think it will look crap, or the tape won't be up to the job, take a look at Tenacious Tape....
As good as invisible. Works equally well inside or outside. Sticks and seals. Great to leave in your spares box, for those little emergencies.

Just cut into oval shapes, or at the very least, for longer cuts/tears, simply round off the corners. Once it's on, it stays on.
I've used it once on the inside of a sewn in ground sheet (I used Gorilla tape on the underside... just as good, but it's thicker and black (or white) so not invisible, thus not as neat a finish), and once on a green Vango polyester tent fly sheet, (a patch on both inside and outside of the same cut) when my spiked tarp pole went through the front panel.
Very impressive results on both occasions.


Hard to say if it's suitable close to stitching, particularly without a photo. I'm tempted to say it would still work, but it's not something I've tried in that scenario.

I agree with Mucker, Tenacious Tape will give an almost invisible repair.

Use masking tape to hold the torn fabric in the correct position and apply the Tenacious Tape to the other side, then remove the masking tape and apply a patch of Tenacious Tape to that side too.

If you have a wallpaper roller or something similar roll the repair to ensure maximum adhesion of the tape.

Tear-Aid is a lot stronger than Tenacious Tape
