As my own son would no longer let me anywhere near his closet, let alone hand over any more t-shirts, I had to visit my local thrift store and buy my own black shirts. They cost about two bucks each and all looked new. One even had the tag and price left on! One is plain black, one has a logo and design on the back, the other has the Greek alphabet on the front! They need livening up!
Step 2: All tied up and ready to "un" dye - the flower fold!
I decided to do the "flower fold" on the plain black shirt. Follow the diagram and put the bands on very tight.
Step 3: Spiral fold
This shirt has the spiral fold. . Place the dowel in the center of the shirt and wind either to or against the clock. When you have the nice flat pie shape, put plenty of rubber bands, back and front to keep the shape. Keep the shirt flat.
Step 4: Another way to fold - the fan fold!
You don't have to speak Greek to fold this shirt! Place face down, fold in half from top to bottom. Start turning the dowel at the outer corner in a clockwise direction. (if you turn the other way, the pattern will be different - not that it would matter). This will also need to be formed into a pie. The sleeves will come naturally round and join the circular flow! When you have the pie shape put plenty of rubber bands on, back and front.
