There is a kit that put a patch under the split then a filler goes on top then, theres a mold that goes on top which you heat with an iron and that imprints the pattern into the filler ,saw this on wheeler dealers,it was used by an upholsterer try hotrodtrimmer on here .

I have/had one of the repair kits with liquid 'vinyl' and one thing I found was that it shrank and sunk a lot in the hole. I think you will have to remove the cover and, as Paul said, stick a patch underneath to support the repair and to stop it pulling apart further.
