You did very well for your first time with a job that is not at all easy. Small, curved shapes are very hard to do.

One tip or suggestion. I always use smaller welt cord with vinyl. I use 4/32 welt cord instead of 5/32 because the vinyl is thick and can make the welts look out of proportion, especially on smaller items like your arm rests.

In the pictures, 5/32 welt cord is on the right.
