    Try cutting into a side of leather, lol. Actually when my instructor asked me if I was nervous about cutting a pattern in leather, he seemed disappointed when I told him I'd cut out fabric that was worth a lot more. I think he was hoping I'd become a nervous wreck.

    Buy a bolt of really cheap fabric. Some Walmarts still sell fabrice for $1-2/yard. You can cut and make a mockup of your project with it, and make any corrections, and then use THAT as your pattern for your leather.

    I have an excellent pattern made of construction paper. The pattern had been traced on the leather and I was still getting the hang of using a head knife and was being a bit cautious. He seemed to think this was nervousness. I was his first and only female student.

    There are female clubs of DYI builders. Everyone is nervous the first time your try stuff. I have a 1960's vintage heavy duty singer with only one type of stitch---straight. The old manual tells you how to use it for many things, including button holes and embroidery. Just master the techniques, and good luck with your leather-work. =D
