I suggest the tutorials on the sew mama sew blog. Sorry, i am on my kindle and don't know how to make it clicky. But they have wonderful information and great projects!

 I agree..............or maybe just make a simple pillow from squares just to get used to the feel of it until you find something that sparks your interest.....here's a pdf of a 9 patch pillow I used to teach my daughter with...

One of my first projects, I made my own pin cushion. Tote bagsare always good. If you have a little girl you can start learning how to use elastic by making her a simple skirt. Pillowcase dresses (or shirt) are really simple too.
