Use this stuff

http://www.kiteaid.com/clear-sail-tape-repair-kit

Clear tape, needs only to be put on inside. Amazing stick, we use it in the school in Cape Verde for much bigger stuff, the kites get put through the beach break washing machine daily, but the tape is bomb proof! And, you will hardly see it.

I've had tears a little bigger than that, patched it on both sides with normal canopy tape that you get with your kite. Held for 2 years with no issues so far.
