SOURCE: thread bunching up under fabric.
Be sure that the thread is in the TAKE-UP lever. There are four thead guide the thread must pass through. From the spool through the first thread guide at #1 than straight down to #2 than up to #3 throught the take-up lever and straight down to the left of the needle and throught hte neele form fornt ot back.
If the thread is not in that take-up lever the machine will not have any top tension (or be regulated) it will flood the machine with thread and wrap around that bobbin.
Also, be sure have you presser foot int he up position while threading this way the thread will surely pass through the tension disks, Set your top tension at 4, use good quality thread (get rid of the dual duty or all purpose) All of these steps will ensure a perfect balanced stitch.

If you are having problems with the thread on the underside of the fabric, that is usually the upper tension. Check to make sure that it is threaded correctly. If so, make sure that the thread is inside the tension disc and that there are no pieces of thread caught in the tension. If it is threaded and there are no thread caught up in the tension assembly, adjust your tension dial to a slightly higher number. Do this until you get a good stitch.

This is a tension adjustment problem. It's good to use two different colors of thread, like you did. From your description, the top thread (needle thread) tension needs to be tighter. As you tighten the tension of the top thread, you'll see that the top thread pulls the bobbin thread up into the fabric so it's no longer laying loose on the bottom of the fabric.
You'll need to have the pressure foot down when you tighten the tension. Tighten it a little, sew a practice seam, check to see what the stitch looks like. Tighten it a little more, sew, check, etc etc--until both top and bottom look the same--you shouldn't see much (if any) of the bobbin thread color on top of the fabric or the top thread color on the underside.
Let me know how this works for you, ok?
