I miss my sewing machine!

Boo hoo hoo!
I am having a heck of a time dealing with my loaner machine(a Baby Lock?)while my precious Singer Futura is back at the factory. As you know, I sew a lot of oilcloth and this machine must have lived a dainty little life before it met me. I cannot get the tension right on this thing to save my life! The top thread keeps bunching on the underside of what I am sewing after a while no matter how I adjust. It is so frustrating especially because someone bought out my entire supply of lunch bags from my etsy shop and I really need to make more fast!
This little bag may look all innocent and sweet but it had me swearing like a truckdriver! I flung my seam ripper across the room and I think it is hiding from me now.
simple oilcloth lunch sack- pink oranges 001
How is everybody else?
I miss my blog pals, Life has just been too busy lately! I'll try to visit on Saturday morning.

Hi, sweets. Are you sure it's not the bobbin that is the problem? When the thread bunches like that for me it's always the stupid bobbin.

Your lunch bag is adorable, as always. I hope your sewing machine issue is rectified soon.

My machine is going back to the factory too, I have a bernina that is having electrical problems that are maddening!

Do you have a roller foot? I swear by that as well as using a micro-tex needle.
These two things made oilcloth loads "easier".

have fun!
