|The very geeky, eco-chic pocket garden|
The dimensions below are for a standard pocket garden and will fit into the pocket of your average man-tailored shirt. If you want to wear your pocket garden with a specific shirt or a shirt with different-size pockets, adjust the dimensions accordingly. The only supplies needed are vinyl, needle and thread, potting soil, and plant seeds.

In this first example of a pocket garden, we've used chalkboard vinyl left over from a previous project (Experiments with Chalkboard Vinyl), and we've planted an assortment of herbs.
|Fill with potting soil, plant seeds, and water.|
As the seeds are growing and when your pocket garden is not in active use, water as needed and prop it upright near a sunny window.
|Pocket herb garden. You may want to add a loop on the outer flap for a small pair of scissors so that you may snip fresh herbs to enhance your meal while dining out.|
|The pocket garden in action. Because chalkboard vinyl was used it is possible to write messages on the front flap.|
