1/16" welding wire will do in a pinch. Sew the piece, then insert the wire.

There is nothing special about the wire, it is just about 12 or 14 gauge malleable steel wire, and it is put into listings, which are just pockets for the wire sewed to the seat cover. You can also use stake wire, which is paper covered oil impregnated wire. You don't necessarily need to use wire, you can use Typar listing with cord in it. It comes in different widths and in rolls or by the yard. The Typar listings also come without the cord sewed in, here is a link for that: CLICK HERE I like the listing with cord because it turns corners better than listings with wires in them.
