Sewing newbie

I'm not so much a newbie, but I have very limited experience. I can sew straight lines easily, but actual patterns and I have never gotten along.

That being said, are there any good/easy CD patterns out there that even a beginner can do?

I had never touched a sewing machine in my life when I asked and received one for Christmas last year. I asked for it with the intention of making cloth diapers. I got the babyville book for Joanns and used that and have had success. My first diaper was a disaster, I then chilled on the diapers and concentrated on making really nice double layer cloth wipes instead to boost my confidence. Once I mastered them I started back on diapers. It'll take practice but my 3rd pocket diaper ever made is by far near perfect! Also YouTube is your friend, use the patterns included and watch someone else do it on YouTube and it makes so much more sense.

Good luck!! And p.s. I was so new to sewing I had no idea what a bobbin was. It took me 2 hours of watching YouTube videos to figure out just how to wind the bobbin and thread the machine. If I can do it anyone can

You Tube is by far the most helpful resource for me.
