Unhappy Leather Seat - seam repair?

On my leather seats (passenger & driver), there are 2 small tears at the seams (front edges).

Anyone know of an easy way to repair this?

Thanks.

not sure how to cheaply fix a tear, but i do know if you have problems like a faded color or something like that, you can actually have it painted very cheap and if you go to someone good they can match the color very well, i couldnt even notice when i had it done.

just thought it was pretty cool, i hope i save someone money down the road

Best way is to get an upholsterer to re-sew the seams.

I had my local upholsterer replace the side bolsters with matching leather. Re-sewing seams isn't always long lasting. Good luck! Oh, BTW, it was only about $60 to replace 2 side seam bolsters. It was cheap because I just matched some scraps he had in his shop, rather than ordering Porsche leather. Cannot tell the difference.
