okay. it's been years since I have used a sewing machine. I am getting back into it and trying to make a messenger bag.
My problem is this... 
When I sew a seam, it looks normal on top, but on the bottom, i can't tell which is which, but one string is straight and the other one is making little loops that is loose on the fabric. I don't know if that made sense, like I can pull the two pieces that i just sewed together apart a little bit.
I messed with all the knobs and stuff that were in the instruction manual(individually of course)... sewed a little bit, no change after anything.
I will continue to tinker with it, but I have already had many frustrations with this machine tonight (wrong type of bobbin, ect...). I just had it taken to the shop and fixed~ it's an old school singer, and the guy said it is a wonderful machine, but for some reason I can't get it to work right. Like I said, it's been years since I've sewn anything... probably since I was between 12 and 14 and I am now 22, so I've fogotten much of how to use my machine. 
Any suggestions would be great. I can try to post a picture of what it's doing, but it would probably be hard to see since the fabric is the exact color of the thread.
Sorry for such a long post!

WOW! I LOVE this bag. It is exactly what I've been wanting to make for a school bag. I would change the dimensions so it can hold my books and stuff, but I love the pleating and great fabric choices you made. Do you have any idea when you will post a tute? or do I have to try to make it by myself before school? Embarrassed
