I told my wife that my mom used to darn socks to fix them, so she picked one old sock out of my drawer and loudly sez DARN as she drops it into the wastebasket! See how I darned one now you try it, darn the other one.
For the awning, the seam should be resewn and perhaps use some patching material to strengthen the seam in that area... The fabric gets stressed from rain, wind and even the way we open the awning and tilt it (manual awnings), electric ones seem to do both sides simultaneously.
