This person is not an expert and should not be on the thread.  You can buy a bonded leather repair kit - even Walmart sells them.  It's a matter of preparing the old material; cleaning, drying and using a very light sand paper.  The kits provide a material like colored liquid vinyl or something similar, I'm certainly no expert.  But if you're handy, you may succeed.
