  • I learned by getting patterns and following the instructions. For more details, I bought a sewing book that was put out by Simplicity which showed more step by step construction steps and more clearly defined how to do things like trimming seams, making buttonholes, and the like.

  • for patterns try a store like Joannes, on weekend they have .99 cent sales you can get some pretty awesome patterns and check your yard sales and church sales for fabrics, books and other goodies, and just keep practicing

  • Youtube has a crapton of videos that show you how to do different crafts. I am a self taught knitter and I learned to knit watching Youtube solely. :) HTH
