There are really only two things that make me nervous.

The first is "sewing" my finger.

The second is being so bad at this that any money spent on fabric is wasted. I know I'll need practice, and that's fine, but I worry that practice won't be enough.

I sewed my finger once when I was in high school - it didn't go through, but I had a nice hole in my finger nail until it grew out.  That incident took a lot of teen age cocky to happen - I've never had a problem with it since.  Grin

If you have old sheets or but some at a thrift store or get some really cheap fabric (like muslin) they are great for practice.  It's just a matter of learning to control the fabric while the machine is running - and don't go any faster (speed of the machine) than you are comfortable with.  You can already do hand work, so you should do fine.
