    You will have to find a company that specializes in interior repair. You might want to see if there is a Color Glo rep in your area. The one in Dallas does excellent work.

    about how much would it cost to have something like that fixed? Could I do it myself with a little fishing line or thread by just sewing it together?

    I have no way of knowing without seeing what the damage is. You might be able to fix it yourself if you are a talented seamstress.

    In the future, just shave off some of the fabric from an inconspicuous spot in the upholster with a razor and glue it into the holes.
