Re-coloring cloth seats can be done, but basically only to brighten up the color you already have. If you try to do such a drastic change you can screw up the texture of the fabric.

OK thanks, but i am more concerned with the seats being black to get me by for a while than maintaining a perfect texture. it is not a permanent solution. i just have these bucket seats sitting in the garage, and the bench seat in my chevelle is torn up pretty bad

If you don't care that you destroy the fabric that's on there, you can use SEM Color Coat. It comes in aerosol cans and in bulk, but it must be sprayed.
Check the instructions on page 5 of this link. HERE You can buy SEM products HERE Good luck.

With regular fabric dye, you would have to take the seat covers off and soak them in the dye solution. Black on red would probably get you to dark brown.
