I Know that Wonderoos has a patent for OS pockets but only in that style so why couldn't a WAHM just make her own design of pockets unlike HH's?, does it not work that way?

no, it doesnt' work that way. the patent is very complicated and includes just about everything even different fabrics. I have heard that several people have hired lawyers (including HH's) to contest the patent and nobody has succeded so far.
