    You need to give us a few more specifics.

    For a first time sewer, use lots and lots of pins, and take your time. After a while you can use fewer pins, and go faster. Unless... you're making a quilt... or... a cat curve...

    mutsutake?

    I used this site quite a bit when getting started. It's for kite making, but it's the same concept.

    There's always thru-hiker for the mandatory stuff sack project. Makes lots of these and you'll be all set.
