巧婦難為無米之炊

You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. 

 

Meaning:

You cannot make a good quality product using bad quality materials 

 

For example:

How can you build a tree house when you are living in an apartment in a city where there is not a tree around you? You can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear.
