Did you try rethreading the machine? Sometimes mine does that too and it usually stops once i rethread my sewing machine.

That's what mine does when I set the stictch size too small, i.e., under 1 mm, and I don't pull the fabric through fast enough. The bobbin thread bunches when it sews a stitch in the same place multiple times, sometimes it gets stuck to the footplate. Try turning up the stitch size and see what happens.

that happens to me, i find if i rethread the machine it works better b/c the tread might not be in the tension disk properly

if you have an older machine the tension disk may have broke, and well that means your screwed

or your tension may set wrong

anyway i think it might be the tension thats the problem................

hope you fix it

I HATE when this happens. It's usually sporadic with my machine, and is fixed by rethreading. Every once in a while I'll have to do what QueenofSporks said and fiddle with the stitch length. (Your fabric is really cute, by the way!)

loops on the bottom means something is wrong on top.

unthread the machine.

floss the tension disks.

rethread, making sure the thread is fully seating in the tension assembly.

pull up the bobbin thread.

make sure the presser foot is DOWN when you start stitching.

Sorry I can't be more specific but I'd say the tension is off a bit.

Thanks, everyone! 
The foot was done, but I will try re-threading, adjusting, etc and see what helps... I'm pretty new to using the machine (it's my mom's old machine... she suggested that maybe it's just old and crappy) and new to sewing, actually...
Thanks for you help!

when was the last time it was in to the shop for a tune up?  Might need to be adjusted if it has been a while.

When you are rethreading, be sure to rethread the bobbin as well (reseat the bobbin making sure that it is in correctly).

Has it always sewn this way, or was it OK before this particular seam?
