Dollar dollar bills y'all, or how to make a dollar into a tiny shirt.

Massive credit goes to Clay, who put up the idea originally, along with much other money art.

## Step 1: Gotta have cash money

Get a dollar.

(Don't steal it though, as that would be wrong, and I'll judge you. Begging is okay, but if you're going to beg, you should do something for people in return, like hum the national anthem.)

Place dollar face up.

## Step 3: Now, unfold the dollar.

Unfold the dollar after you have folded it in half as mentioned in the previous step.

Yeah, I know. You are probably saying... "Folding it in half and then telling me to unfold it, what's the point???". The previous fold marks the middle of the short height of the dollar and you will need the crease mark in order to line up folds in later steps.

(NOTE: This step has been added since the original instructions were created... It should help with creating the sleeves that many had problems making the original fold. )

## Step 4: Fold dollar to Washington's nose

On the side with Washington's face, fold one end of the dollar so the edge goes up to Washington's nose.

(NOTE: This step has been added since the original instructions were created... It should help with creating the sleeves that many had problems making the original fold. )

## Step 5: Another 50 cents

Using the crease you made in the very first fold, fold each half of the bill over, so the edges meet in the middle at the crease.

(NOTE: This step has been added since the original instructions were created... It should help with creating the sleeves that many had problems making the original fold. )

## Step 6: Make sleeve folds

On the end that you folded to Washington's nose, make 2 folds so the corners extend out.

(NOTE: This step has been added since the original instructions were created... It should help with creating the sleeves that many had problems making the original fold. )

## Step 7: Flip-flop

Flip the bill over.

Great pictures, thank you! I've been meaning to look these up for some time, but keep forgetting. Logged onto Instructables, and here you are!

Wonderful for making up a batch ahead of time in different denominations for tips.

Thanks!

Ooo neat. At first I thought it was an actual tea shirt.

But I guess it would go well on a mouse or a Barbie doll or something.

I had known how to do this for a while... however i forgot and this reminded me. It makes and excellent tip. We usually use another dollar bill to prob it up by making a stand of some type to prop it up. We actually had a waiter run out the restaurant.. and asked us about it.. anywho... great instructable, thanks for the reminder.

do u think it would work with a 5 dollar note cause i live in Australia and our notes dont fold as good

I made mine with a \$20 Australian (I also live in Aust.) our money is made of plastic so its hard to fold

Is our money made of plastic?
5 years ago
Yep, aust was the first country to use plastic notes. Australia also prints money for other countries

@jeffreyf our notes are all the same height but get longer as the value increases \$5 is our shortest and the \$100 is the longest (we have coins for \$1 and 2\$)

Im amazed! I live in australia, and i cannot believe how you made that! Aussie money is hard to fold!
jeffreyf (author)  sgt.peanut957 years ago
It would work with any US note. They're all the same size. I don't know about the Austrialian dollar, but I'm sure you can play around with it.
