Sock plush are a great place to start as you don’t need to buy any special fabric and they’re usually very simple to make. Maqaroon has loads of kawaii sock plush DIYs in the archives and she’s still adding more. These Warawara (from Ghibli’s The Boy and the Heron) are too cute and I really want to make one. There’s also a sewing tips video to help you get started.
