Darning Foot Modification

Mary wanted an opening in the front of the Darning Foot I didn’t modify the last time around, so I grabbed it in a machinist’s vise, grabbed that in the bench vise, and freehanded a Dremel slitting saw:

Darning Foot - saw-cut foot
Darning Foot – saw-cut foot

A bit of file work and it looks pretty good, although neither of us like the blurred-from-the-factory red lines:

Darning Foot - opened foot
Darning Foot – opened foot

This one retains the pin that lifts it as the needle rises, so it’s a hopping foot.
