Cozy wall pockets

I almost done working my way through the book Handmade Home by Amanda Soule. This project is called cozy wall pockets. I cheated a tiny bit (not really-anything goes) on this one. Instead of using a piece of wool blanket-I used the back of an old wall quilt-which I didn't like so much anymore.
I just cut out, folded, and pressed the 'pockets' and stitched them on. I embroidered a little heart for decoration. Then I added some tabs to the top and a dowel rod-then tada-cozy wall pockets. Great for storing craft supplies!
Four more project to go! :) Projects that are left:

::women's cloth
::memory tree quilt art
::silky eye pillow
::baby sling
