This was posted on the Craigslist in my area.. they are asking $60.00 each for these.. but I thought you guys would enjoy seeing these and if you all had any old sewing machines and did not know what to do with them .. here is an idea..

If you google sewing machine tractor you get quite a few. Below in the link line is a riding one. Pretty awesome!

This is a "toy" one.

There is also a man making the "toy" ones out of newer models and they are very cool also. If you are interested I suggest you google. Theres a lot out there, but beyond my skill level to make unfortunately.

Now that is just the cutest tractor I have ever seen, that will be a project for me and it will be a John Deere. I have a night stand that is a sewing machine cabinet and I will surely use the machine so it will be lighter to move and I know where I can get more. My husband would just love this in his office at the John Deere dealership...thanks so much
