The stitch to use for this repair is the basic stitch. To do a basic stitch just poke the needle through the nylon material until it is on the other side. Bring all of the thread through. Then push the needle back near the thread that was pulled through.

Repeat doing the basic stitch. Keeping sewing until all of the nylon material is secure. This picture is an example of how a basic stitch row should look like after repeating the stitch.

Once finished cut the remaining thread and double knot the thread. Trim off any excess nylon material that is not sewn down. This is the finished product.
