    You know it's true, everybody is thinking the same thing.

    Sewing the two sides together would shorten the material in relation to the inner layer. As a result, the inner layer will not take as much stress if any which in turn puts all the stress on the outer layer. For safety, I think you need two complete and even layers so replacing the bottom layer seems like the best course of action to me.
