I had a Geo Blossom that I tried this with some years ago and when I tried to blow it up the chamber that the hole was in actually inflated. It popped because of another defect when the next chamber started to inflate though (I know it was a different defect because the area around the patch didn't tear, it was on an entirely different part of the balloon.
Interesting, didn't know that, thanks for the tip! Haven't thrown it out yet so I'll try fixing it soon!

I threw a lot of balloons about weak spots. I always thought that I was the only one, I'm a bit happy to hear you. Such as many of you, I stopped my inflating thousands times, about pinholes, bad shape, uniform color... Probably 90% og them were harmless, but I just ran away.
