I have always been fascinated by the gear that people make for themselves and always wanted to try but never had the money to get what I needed to start. Now there is a sewing machine that I may be able to get for free from a relative and I am looking to try my hand at DIY gear.
I was wondering what a good starting point is to learn the sewing skills and every thing necessary to make your own gear. I have no background in it at all. What is the progression of projects for making gear?
