Just to get the feel of the pedal and how the machine stitches, just run some material through the machine with a piece of foam under it. Do figure 6's, turns, and put a few straight chalk marked lines on there to learn how to get eh machine to sew straight. But I found figure 8's very helpful with learning how to sew corners, curves and just general control of the machine.

You could get a junk seat and recover it with some super cheap material as practice as well.
