Repairing a Burn Hole in a Faux Leather Couch

I have a medium/dark colored couch. On one end there are about five small cigarette burns on the arm rest. Also, where you sit, on the same side under this arm are about five holes. I keep the arms covered with clean, new dish towels, but I don't want to have to but a towel or something on the bottom. I actually want to fix it. I think this material is called faux leather.

You need to get a vinly repair kit from an autoparts store or They make an invisibe repair when used. Two year olds are tough so hide the lighter way up high next time!

Best of luck,

Does anyone know how to repair or camouflage a melted cigarette burn in a white faux leather corner seat? Are there patch kits available? Thanks!

You used to be able to buy repair kits for vinyl in the hardware/automotive departments of discount stores, I don't know if they still have them, but it wouldn't hurt to look.

I have a 2 inch burn in my fake leather couch. My son who's 2yrs old struck my Zippo lighter while I was on the phone. I know that's really bad, but he dropped it because he got scared and I saw the reflection through the window I was looking out of. The flame was huge, but the hole isn't as bad as I expected it to be. But it's still bad and I need to know how I can repair this. I am so upset about the whole thing. Can anyone help?
