Yes! From the comments:
eremiah Benson is my grandson and he's outfitted in the Sealskin Parka with the leather and lighter sealskin accent. His mom got blisters when sewing his outfit and stayed up late hours, she had me and her sisters busy looking for skins and ideas on how to make his jacket a little different. We had fun making his sealskin pants and sealskin suspenders. When he finally put his pants on, we thought of Tracy's poppa Charlie Edwardsen and the pictures we saw of him using similar clothing. The last thing we all made for him was the little sealskin football and it was the "after long hours" of sewing that we were on that "creativity high" of sewing more.
