Seat repair.

Ok, this morning I noticed the beginning of a rip on my driver seat. I have an '07 328xi coupe. I believe it has the leatherette finish. The crease is about 3 inches long on the lower bolster (side). Anyway, does anyone know of a cheap way to fix this problem? It hasn't ripped right through yet, but eventually it's going to.
Any thoughts?

Seat repairs

Holes or Tears can be repaired by cleaning any rough or frayed edges and then placing a sub-patch of backing material that is larger than the hole must then be secured in place by means of a sub-patch and adhesive to give the leather patch something to anchor to. Before you insert the backing piece cover it with adhesive, allow the adhesive to become tacky.

Take a piece of circular leather cut to a half inch larger all round than hole and hold it in place with adhesive applied to the sub-patch backing piece. Pro Stick 65 Hi-Strength- spray adhesive for bonding foams, carpet and upholstery
