If you go to a marine store it may be worth looking at sail repair tape. I have used that for many tent and awning repairs with good success. It comes in various colors. If you use sail repair tape I recommend cutting the corners with a radius. Square corners peel up more over time. Stitch the repair tape down well using a spoon or other rounded tool to help adhesion. I use a small cutting board as a bearing surface to press against.
A local sail loft will also have sticky back. That is a fairly heavy self adhesive Dacron cloth which is used for wear patches on sails. It sticks very well and is durable. Typically it is only white color though. Most sail makers will sell small pieces at decent cash price to walk-ins
A marine store may have some vinyl, but a fabric store will likely have a better selection.
