The idiom is actually "to make do", and it means to work with what you have, to continue somehow despite an impediment or non-ideal circumstance.
I always think that "make due" would make almost more sense (I realize the idiom is actually "make do"). "Making due" could imply accomplishing something owed/expected despite obstacles, which is really the sense of the phrase.
