I bought 6 metres of ripstop nylon for my blimp envelope. What is the best way to seal the edges?

I've tried glue, duct tape, and a bit of heat sealing. It doesn't really work.

How can I make a giant version of a latex (rubber) balloon?

I wanted to make a giant balloon to tie onto myself and jump up and down really high. I suppose a pogostick does the same thing, but a giant balloon seems cool as well.
