Soft top pin hole repair?

Just wondering if there are any tips or tricks to repairing (or at least preventing it from growing) a small pin hole in the soft top. Got one that isn't much more than a couple of mm in diameter.

Where is the hole? If it is in a good spot fot it, just sew a cool patch on it. For instance an army insignia. Do a search for patches and order one.

I heard of people using the iron-on patches used for jeans. Just cut to size and iron.

Just spitballin', but in a pinch, I imagine you could use nail polish.
