Suggestions for where I buy a larger patch? Tear aid? Bicycle inner tube patch (others claim its the same material and is definitely more widely available).

I was the same way when I first started fixing the bladders on my kites oh my goodness the messes I made of my bladders. I eventually figured it out, but even I sometimes give it up and just buy a new bladder.
