Trying the new padding

So in use, it is definitely lighter and softer, but I think that the kimono was fitting better on the old one.

New Padding

Yesterday I made myself a new padding, I`m not sure I find it better than the old one, but it is softer and lighter and that part... is nice.

- Now that I've used it a few times, I can say that it's light, which is nice.
Warm, to warm and soft, too soft


Think I `ll make one too that will be a little smaller
