I've never tried this but a repair kit for tents/kites/backpacks should make for a stronger repair than tape. Search for "iron-on repair patch".
Unless you are extremely deft with an flat iron, like "gonzogolf", I would also avoid iron on patch material as a fix.
Most sotboxes are constructed of nylon, or nylon like, material that have a reasonably low melting point.
The iron on patch material works by using a hot melt like glue that also has a low melting point, likely a bit lower than nylon, but you will be trying to hit a very small target temperature of high enough for the hot melt patch, but not so hot to melt the nylon.
I would suggest you punt to a more forgiving repair process.
If it is smaller hole, hand sewing would likely be a good method.
