I used a wetsuit repair glue I got at a dive shop to put mine together (and some E-Bay scrap neoprene). Can't remember the name of the glue, but i'm sure any dive/surf shop would probably have it.
While the glue seemed to "weld" the seams o.k., I had a friend run it through her sewing machine after the glue dried just for peace of mind.
It looks a bit Frankensteinish, but it does what I wanted it to... protects and gives you some grip.
Total cost for everything was my time (it was actually kinda fun) and about $18.
