I made a basic apron last night using some fabric from IKEA. For some reason my sewing machine left loops at the back of each stitch. Does anyone have ideas on how to fix/change that? I'm thinking of adding a pocket to the next one I make and being mor ecareful about keeping the hemlines even. Any suggestions or comments are much appreciated! Thanks!

Sounds like a tension problem. Apron looks fab, though! Smiley

I love it!  It is so sleek and modern! Not your typical frilly apron.  I think it is great despite any sewing difficulties you may have had.
