WAY to much work to try to convert a jib to a main.. as Sabreman says it's just not the right sort of sail.. different shape and you'd have to add slugs, reef points, batten pockets & battens... it'd be like starting over and you'd end up with something that really wouldn't work well.
Put it in a consignment store.. if it's in good shape it will sell and then get yourself the proper sail for your boat.
