-Rit Dye: pick out any color you choose! You can find this dye at a large food store, hobby lobby, or any craft store. Do note: if you are going to try to dye something that is dark, try bleaching it first. This tutorial is an example of how to color clothing that is lighter in color.

-A bucket, extra large bowl, or a sink. There are many different ways to dye clothing. Read the directions on your bottle and do whatever works for you. For this tutorial I will be using a large bowl.

-A poker stick, a ruler, anything to push the clothes around while they are being colored

-Washing Machine or Hand-wash
