How to repair a split strut?

One of my struts on my ‘08 Rise is starting to split at the seam. It’s not split open yet but it’s getting there.
I put a patch on it and hoped for the best but it fell off, doesn’t seem to stick as well as it does to the canopy.
I’m thinking of removing the bladder and sewing it by hand. Not sure if this will weaken the seam due to the needle holes I will make.
Any advice would be appreciated.
