Default Anybody have ideas on fixing a hole in my drivers seat?

Hi, I have developed a hole in my driver's seat where I * USED TO* wear my keys. I am now trying to figure out the best plan to repair it.

Any ideas?

Cloth? Don't know.

I was going to suggest the vinyl repair kits that you iron to set the repair material. They actually work very well. They come in handy when you get in the driver's seat with a screwdriver sticking out of a rear pocket while working on a car.

Buy a junkyard passenger seat. The going rate is $75.00. Swap the seat covers.
