Tipi repair

What up guys?

I have the 8 man tipi and love everything about it. We recently burned a pencil eraser sized hole in the ripstop. Anyone have an expert tip on repairing it? I love the strength of the fabric in high winds. I would like to preserve that aspect. My wife is an excellent seamstress.

Thanks!
