Craft Kits for Beginning Sewers

This weekend my mom gave me a new Singer sewing machine. It is a right of passage -- every woman in my family has received one prior to the birth of their first child. You see, a good Southern woman prefers to make things for her youngins rather than always buying stuff for them.

Some of my greatest childhood treasures are the cloth dolls and handmade clothing that my Nanny and Mommy made me. And now, it’s my turn.

The crafty crafterson in me is very excited, but I work full time so I definitely want to take on projects that are feasible for my schedule and not too difficult.

To start, I was thinking of tackling one of these three items. They each come in a kit – complete with pattern, fabrics, and instructions for people just starting out in the sewing world. Which one do you think I should do?
