Stylish Men's Sewing Kit

http://elizabethdilk.com/files/gimgs/17_sew1.jpg

Designer Elizabeth Dilk came up with this sleek sewing kit intended for men who just need the essentials: "Unassuming sewing kit packaged in a 3.5" cube. Contains just the essentials, and directions to replace a button, mend a tear and hem pants. In three tiers, the box contains straight pins, safety pins, sewing needles, 7 types of thread, a seam ripper, tape measure and a packet of spare buttons. Directions are printed on the interior so that losing instructions is impossible."
