I've loved to make things ever since I was a little girl. I think I've learned a lot of great sewing skills just from making dresses for my dolls. When I first heard the word "DIY" long ago, I thought it meant just doing something creative for fun. But nowadays, DIY has become a much bigger, more complicated, and business driven word. There are a lot of interesting blog posts and videos that teach people how to do almost everything at home. As an industrial design student, I used a lot of shop power tools (including a table saw) at school to design products and make prototypes.
I know how hard it is for people to have a table saw of their own, but for most soft goods, I feel like I can design and create almost everything right from home. At the present time, a sewing machine has become my new "table saw". I can't describe how much I love this tool! Here are some of my favorite handmade creations from the blogs that I enjoy and I want to share them with my readers. Each blog has a ton of awesome DIY projects, check them out in the links below.
