You do not need to cut anything without a guide. The only thing you really need to learn is how to operate the sewing machine effectively, and there are several videos on Youtube and online courses that can help.
If you decide to learn how to make clothing such as sweaters you can get material at several stores online, or buy wool from alpaca breeders to make sweaters, mittens, and other comfy clothing for colder weather.
Whenever the holiday season rolls around, cards are one of the first things that many people reach for. This is one expense you can avoid by making your own card.

You can buy blank cards and envelopes. Then use stamps, pictures, ribbons, and anything else that you would like to decorate them.

Starting a new hobby that doesn’t require a lot of money is always fun. The sooner you start learning and saving the better it will be for your budget.
