I use old pillow cases. My sofa isn't leather, but my mom's Flex Steel sofa from back in the sixties that is still in perfect condition and was recovered years ago. I have four dogs in the house and the sofa is under the Livingroom Windows, so I found two matching quilts in perfect shape at the Salvation Army and used one for the seat portion and one for the back, trucking them in to fit. Unfortunately there wasn't enough length to cover the arms. I took two closely colored pillow cases and tucked them into the sofa to cover the areas and it works perfectly. If the sofa is real leather, get a good leather cleaner and conditioner and use it as directed to stop further cracking and peeling of the rest of the piece. Don't let the leather dry out.
My leather recliner did this in the head rest area. I went to a leather upholstery shop with the measurements and the guy made me a rectangular piece with velcro fasteners. I got leather that was in the color neighborhood of my chair but a contrasting color would also work.
