I doubt that you will be able to find much in the way of matching fabric HOWEVER if you go to an upholsterer they might be able to suggest a complimenting fabric and color.. or do the classic and go with leather seats in a matching color.

Is the fabric itself tearing or just the tread in the seams coming loose? If just the seams, it should be possible to resew them. If the fabric is tearing, you could have the seams reinforced with seam tape but the rest of the fabric will eventually also be tearing. Although expensive, in the long run, reupholstering with all new fabric will be the most cost effective.

I guess my wife was correct. She was thinking a solid color for the cushions. I was just praying we could find it. Lol . Thanks Again

This reminds me that I have seen a lot of manly mods on this forum and was wondering if there were any mods done by the ladies such as changing out window or curtain treatments? I know that I plan on changing those frilly little window toppers in our hybrid as soon as I can

I ran an upholstery company for several years and did repairs on trailer cushions quite often. If the seams are split apart or you want to cover the bad spot with existing or new fabric you can use a technique called blind stitching. You will need good upolstory thread, a curved needle and lots of patience, but if you do it right you can put split seams back in new condition or cover over bad areas... One hint I will give you is to take some fabric from somewhere it does not show ( back of sofas, underneath side of existing cushions etc) to use as patching material. Then put the new.. Non matching on the places that do not show... That's what we did all the time for people when repairing sofas etc.
I have included a link that demonstrates blind stitching..
