For a good starting project, I prefer that you begin with a 8-bit microcontroller. It is a prety good start.

Before you begin learning FPGA design, remember that you need to understand digital design. Also, you should learn an HDL such as Verilog or VHDL. (You could use schematic entry, but that is relatively painful compared to HDL.)

Assuming you have reached that point, one easy way to get started with FPGA is to buy an inexpensive development kit, and then try the tutorials provided in the documentation. For example, here is a nice Spartan-3E starter kit from Xilinx:
https://www.xilinx.com/xlnx/xebiz/designResources/ip_product_details.jsp?key=HW-SPAR3E-SK-US

Also search this forum for similar "getting started" discussions. You will find many students asking similar questions.

To make your learning more enjoyable, search for hobby project web sites such as this one:
