I'm going to try and sew J a shirt tomorrow as part of the make-along. I've never sewn a shirt, I can't even sew in a straight line, and I'm fully expecting to ruin the semi-expensive cloth J bought for it yesterday. And although I know I'll look at my crumpled, lopsided attempt at this time tomorrow and feel disappointed that it's not perfect, I also know I'll be another step closer to being a decent sewer.
Are you going to joining the make-along? Making something crazy ambitious is not a requirement by the way.
