A four-sided piece of material with peel-off adhesive strip on three sides (similar to bandaid sticky part). Can be made in various sizes, shapes, colors, and materials. To be used for those moments when you need a temporary pocket to hold something (cash, I.D., cigars, or whatever). Good at the beach, on a pocketless t-shirt, a wall, a window, the side of a boat. You find a place.

Well, whattya think?

Circa July 2000: A slightly different take on the pocket problem. [bristolz, Oct 04 2004]

       The adhesive part may be problematic -- both in terms of holding anything weighty and staining the shirt.   

       But on the whole, yes+

       That's great -- but what would you carry it in?

       Welcome to the HB, [shaver4077].   

       This would be great for nudists. Well, maybe not hairy nudists.[+]

       To phundug: I'd carry it in an InstaPocket !!!   

       Never thought of nudists. Who fries the bacon there anyway? That's gotta hurt !

       I'm always thinking of nudists...24*7!

       maybe add a velcro strip to attach to chest hair.

       Something similar happened in a Dilbert comic strip, Dilbert invented a pocket that would Velcro itself to chest hair.

       to whatastrangeperson: would work nicely on chest hair as long as the chest has been treated with that new "chest hair shampoo" which I believe goes under the Brandname NEAT.   

       to 1st2know: Under our clothes.......we're ALL nude.

       It seems like every merchandise vendor would have to sell InstaPockets as well. E.g. "Let me have a hotdog with mustard, and an insta-pocket, please."

       I'll give you lucky bun #13! [+]

       Bravo! I have no InstaPocket in which to keep this spare croissant, will you hang onto it for me?

       Nice one, welcome to the bakery. (WTAGIPBAN)

       13 buns? I got here and found none at all.   

       I found this idea after halfbaking something like this. I need a portable pocket for the insides of my jackets. For some reason, ladies' jackets don't usually sport inside pockets. I need one of these to carry stuff in and would like a portable version that I can move from one jacket to the next. Don't know if I like the adhesive method or the Velcro method or perhaps something else, but a temporary pocket would be neat to have.   

       And by the way, I'm a nudist. :)
