They use Alcantara in BMWs, so you didnt make a mistake on the material. Use "sew foam" for backing. It is sold in various thicknesses. It is basically foam with a cheesecloth-type backing, i would go for 1/4" thick. Sew foam much thicker than that can get hard to manage at the sewing machine. A standard seam would work just fine, but if you want to add a bit of strength, a flat-fell seam might be the way to go. Ribbon isnt needed, unless you are wanting to sew a french seam, which i wouldnt recommend if you are a beginner on a single needle machine.
