Swimmy by Leo Lionni is the subject of our K-2 class that begins September 13th at The Tri City Leisure Center is West Rutland.
Here is Swimmy:
One year in VT I had the very bright idea to make an entire school of fish costumes for this little show. I used that neat looking pattern from a well known pattern house to cut out and begin to sew about ten costumes.
It was the only time i ever thought i would go absolutely out of my mind trying to create costumes. I finally – and i have never told anybody this – threw the entire lot of them in the trash except for one big black nasty fish I had finished. Though he was supposed to have been Swimmy, he was now scary enough to me to be the big fish that tried to eat them all.
Eeek! A costume nightmare.
The costumes have been reconceptualized much more simply. Red hats and gloves, black hat and gloves. And one big nasty nightmarish giant fish.
