 Those are awesome.  I wish I could sew.  Want to learn, have no clue where to start!   :(

You start with a desire to learn. :) do you have a machine? If not, start checkin craigslst or thrift stores and maybe obtain a cheap used one that functions well to practice on. Use some old sheets or something to practice straight lines. :)

If it's something you think you will stick with, make the $100 investment in a basic machine at Walmart. :) maybe find sewing classes near you?

 Thats a great idea.   I am so going to start looking.  DH said he would buy me one if I wanted one but I didnt want to spend that kind of money if I sucked at it.   What kind of machine should I look for?

Any machine can be a good machine if it's in good repair and cared for, really. Try to find one with the bobbin cage, feed feet, bobbins, cords and manuals. If all else fails, just make sure it has the cords. You can 90% of the time order replacement parts if all it needs is zipper feet or something. But check for cords and ask to plug it in and mess with it before you buy it. If it doesn't have the manual you can typically order one online. If you have a mobile device with Internet you can google it all while you are looking at it at the shop. :)
