A purse is still about straight lines so just think of it as small projects and go for it. Craftsters has some great tutorials.

aaaahhhh! i actually finished A bag. my first REAL purse! its not the one i planned to make but its half of what i wanted so that i could practice some. not all my lines were straight AND i prequilted the fabric myself WITHOUT a quilting foot! very time consuming. i guess it took about 12 or 13 hours to day (and i started yesterday afternoon....) i am soooo happy i finished it! can't wait to do MORE MORE MORE!
