This depends on how bad the repair is. I would use a mid weight facing stiffener used for dress making..if its only a split. Completely surround the repair with the stiffener hand sew in place then sew the split with the stiffener together, this should hold the pelt together and stop it from getting worse.
repairs can be dangerous.
