Well, there are two ways to do this. It depends on what you want as a working directory. If you want both project0001 and project002 on the client but you want to be able to update both of them, then you need to check out the projects folder with a --depth=empty then check out the two projects that you want underneath that.

svn co ^/projects --depth empty
cd projects
svn co ^/projects/project0001
svn co ^/projects/project0002

This will get you a sparse checkout of the projects directory and a full checkout of each project folder.

If you just want each project to be a separate working copy, then check them out separately as Andy shows above.

cd ~
svn co ^/projects/project0001
svn co ^/projects/project0002
