Default leather fix?

I have a small rip in my factory leather, its on the side of the seat where the creases are when you sit on it. its only about an inch and a half long and not to noticeable, i just don't want to it to get worse. anyone know a fix that won't make it stick out more than it does now.

post up a pic. sometimes it's better to replace the material then have it filled and dyed. with f/d, it would be seen, but a good person should be able to make it blend. call your local upholstery shop and see if they can do it, or if they recommend someone.

in my opinion, i would have it the panel replaced. it's in an area that when you sit in the seat, the vinyl is flexing and being pushed against the plastic. that's why it's cracked. i do upholstery and have seen many filled and dyed repairs come in to be replaced due to the owner not being happy with the dye job. so why pay twice? we charge around $150 for replacing a panel like that.
