I love the sleek style of this men’s sewing kit from designer, Elizabeth Dilk.

This sewing kit was created when posed with the problem of creating a sewing kit for men. I decided to package a small, 3.5″x3.5″ cube with just the essentials and directions to replace a button, mend a tear, and hem pants.

And her Kit to Thwart Writers Block is absolutely brilliant!

The Kit to Thwart Writers Block was created after being asked to find something I hate, change it and make it better, and then advertise it. Because I hate getting writers block, I researched the many ways to solve it, and created a packaged kit. I advertised it by silkscreening depressing doodles on napkins that look like they could have been drawn by someone in the throes of writers block. Folded on the other side of the napkin is the logo of the kit. Napkins were dispersed at coffee shops, and other locations where one might go to try and avoid writers block.
