I love Namakemono, Sloth

One of my favorite animals is Sloth, in Japanese "Namakemono".
(I like also cats, dogs, platypus in Australia, seals, meerkats etc...)

I like their slow slow motion. They eat only 8 grams of leaves a day, so they do not move 19 hours a day. Eco animal!

Now, I'm making a bag with Namakemono, in very slow pace (* v *).
I'm enjoying playing with him.

It's so cute! I like the idea of making your work speed match your subject matter. Sometimes it's good to move slowly and save energy. ;)
