    Heya,

    The driver's seat of my '06 Tacoma has a hole on the side about the size of a quarter. (I think it was caused by a weakness in the weave...it was just a worn patch when I bought it and got worse over time)

    I need to find a piece of fabric of similar color/texture as the original seat upholstery, but haven't been able to find anything except a massive 12 yard roll on ebay. I really only need about a 3"x3" piece. I couldn't find anything at the local fabric stores. :(

    Anyone know where I can buy any? Or does anyone have a scrap lying around? The color is graphite.

    (and yeah, I know I could try to just sew up the hole, but knowing me it'd look terrible)

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
    Thanks!

    I just remembered; when I ordered swatches I wanted to see what the grey cordura was like. Cordura is basically the material that is damaged on your seats. Maybe that will help you source some material.

    Thanks, Splitbolt! That website is perfect! You've made my day! :)

    And Buzzcut...I will be getting seat covers eventually, but I don't want the seat falling apart underneath. I'd also like to fix it up in case I ever decide to sell it.

    Ty all!
