Why is the back of my sewing messy?

A: Looping on the underside, or back of the fabric, means the top tension is too loose compared to the bobbin tension, so the bobbin thread is pulling too much top thread underneath.

Why does my bottom thread keep bunching?

If the thread has knots, is not smooth, is uneven, or is loose on the bobbin, then it has not been threaded correctly. If your machine uses a bobbin case, follow your sewing machine’s instructions to remove the bobbin from the case and re-thread it.
