The wax coating on waxed canvas prevents glue from sticking reliably. Rather than gluing, your best bet is to have a tailor sew or stitch your patches onto the waxed canvas. Use a clip instead, or be sure to keep the pin holes inside the area you’ll be stitching (so puncture holes are covered by the patch).
