You might have pressing reasons TOO seal it like that, but I HIGHLY recommend you buy a few "grip-clips" from Shelter-systems in California

...fantastically versatile for joining tarps.

Can you plastic weld polyethylene? Lay a newspaper down, overlap the two seams on top. Lay an A4 sheet of paper on the top of the plastic and draw a soldering iron across the top of the paper. Vary the speed to get a good joint. Surprising simply and the reason plastic is used so much in manufacture, its very easily hot worked.
