You'll have to sew at least two sleeping bags, I don't think that all three of the ferrets will fit into just one bag Wink They are easy to make, though. It took me less that 1 1/2 hours to sew it. I bet your sister's ferrets are going to love them  Smiley

I've never worked with Tulip Paint, but I suppose you can just iron the freezer paper onto the layer of paint. I've done it before (with Java Opaque Paint) and it worked out pretty well. You have to make sure the paint's absolutely dry, though. Otherwise the freezer paper will leave ugly stains on the paint which are impossible to remove...

The sleeping bags are really easy to make, I could possibly post a tute... 15 ferrets are quite are lot! I would love to get a third ferret, but my apartment is so small and ferrets can be extremely expensive when they get sick... so I guess I'll have to wait until I get a well paid job ; )

my ferrets don't eat rodents either but they probably would if they were given the chance to do so. I've read about people who let their ferrets play with their hamsters or rats and once they turned their backs on them the rodents turned into a delicious meal...  Sad I prefer to give them special ferret food and sometimes high quality cat food. Every now and then, they also get some zuccini, because they absolutely love it.
Talking about the black footed ferret - I just saw them on tv yesterday. The used to be on the brink of extinction but I guess they now multiplied in the Californian deserts. We got lots of polecats over here, they look very much like my two sable ferrets... and they also eat rodents.
Ferrets for dummies really is a great book. I can also recommend it  Smiley

Hi wakeupdonnie,
make sure you get at least two ferrets and not just one - it's cruel to keep a single ferret and two ferrets are much cuter than one anyway  Wink

They are not crocheted with thread. I thought about embroidery floss first but I didn't have any and since I'm notoriously broke and didn't feel like going shopping anyway, I took plain ww yarn and "split" it into three parts. It only works with some types of yarn, though. Some will break. I used a 1.25mm hook for crocheting.

@ Eliea: I already started with the shrooms. One of them is finished and I'm quite happy with it. It reminds me of my old Nintendo games. I'll try to post a pattern this weekend (after my exam...) - I've never done a pattern before, I hope it works...

The ferret turned out to be exactly 7'' tall. This is way smaller than Vicky- he's extremely huge, though. He is approximately 20 inches taller than the amigurumi ferret Shocked 

I've got flickr & I'll upload the pic in a minute

Thanx so much for the pattern, June! It worked out pretty well, and the new ferret has not peed on anything yet  Wink
I did not have much time for going shopping, so I used plain worsted weight yarn which I had left over. I'll get some heavier yarn next weekend and try another one. Here's the result, I tried to make the amigurumi ferret resemble my boy Vicky: 

Since I'm not too great at crocheting, I just followed the pattern 95% of the time. I miscounted the stitches once, so the body turned out to be a bit slimmer. But I absolutely love it!
