These started out as a bit of a joke. One day, while a bit bored, I took some scrap fleece and made a pink teddy bear like ferret. Thought it was quite funny and showed it to friends on a ferret site. Then started receiving emails asking if the ferret was for sale. I gave the first one away, it soon flew it’s way to the states.
There were so many requests, that sewing ferrets became a bit of a hobby for a time.
Here are a few of those ferrets. (They were known as Sanguine-Sandy Fleece Creations. When we had 15 rescue ferrets, all at the rainbow bridge now.)
Just loved this Santa suit, the material is so plush.
This ferret Santa was called Humbug, due to his colouring.
Our prisoner even had a ball and chain. Several prisoners were made, with different coloured fleece.
He proved very popular,partly due to ferrets being right little thieves!
Witch ferret. Before I’d even putt her up for sale, she was snapped up. Bought and gifted to Arizona for a very special lady.
Hoody ferret, was always one of my favourites. He was just very tactile, felt ‘right’ when picked up. (Some had a small bag of pellets to add weight, in their tummy)
Several versions were sold. All with worn patched jeans, hoody and beanie hats.

The female version of Pj ferret. She has her toy ferret. Nightie and dressing gown.
A commissioned pair.
Bride and Groom
The groom (before his whiskers were added) For him it was adapted clothing, rather than starting from scratch. Only the second time I remember doing this. Clothes were usually made after first making an original pattern.
All handmade. Engagement ring, necklace, underwear, shoes, flowers, dress, tiara, veil and cloak.
There was no need for underwear, except for added humour. After all what does every stuffed, fleeced, ferret bride need….obviously a garter and lace stockings with matching knickers and bra.
