One of my favorite blogs Love Maegan, has some of the easiest do it yourself projects that actually produce great results. Her projects range from creating three different kinds of headbands from scraps around your home, all the way down to creating 3 separate items from 1 shirt. Meagan offers step by step procedures with detailed instructions that accompany high quality pictures showing you exactly what your work should look like from start to finish.
I'm currently creating this DIY braided belt which is almost complete. Pictures coming soon!
