PVC hole repair using D-Ring/Handle Patch?

I have a 14' RMR (PVC) boat...and need to repair two separate holes just above the seam (bow side)...I've been able to research the actual repair process, but here's my question...

Is it safe to repair a small hole using a large D-Ring/Handle patch instead of using a smaller, non-"load bearing" patch?

I have a few D-ring/Handle patches lying around and would like handles/d-rings where these holes are located (symmetrical on both sides of the bow).
