I've never repaired a cut canvas this way (although it looks like a good sturdy repair for a small area). I prefer the patch method, which I demonstrated in the link below. I feel it is best for an item that will get some wear, such as a pillow or even a chair seat.

Whichever route you take, your needlepoint will be ok again.  No one will ever know!
