We've picked an easy tutorial to follow together, which will teach you step-by-step how to create your vegetable dye, as well as different patterns if you wish to do a tie-dye design. You will need some extra supplies for this project, which you can use your $10 Coles voucher to help purchase:

If you missed the giveaway, all you need is a white pair of socks and some rubber bands. You can purchase these from Kmart, Big W or other clothing stores. Then you will need to purchase your extra supplies in the list above. Once you register, we will email you the instructions.
