I took apart the chair and removed the fabric, carefully unstitched it and then used the pieces as a template. A combo of clear tacky glue and fiberfill was used to fill up the hole in the foam. When this fabric wears down I will try making a slipcover instead of taking the whole thing apart again (gazillion staples, achy fingertips). No more gaping foam holes, yay! Next office chair will definitely be armless.
