Introduction: How to Fold a Sweatshirt (and Conserve Space)

Looking for a simple way to fold sweatshirts and keep them together? Here are 10 easy steps!

Supplies:

Hoodie or Sweatshirt

Step 1: Lay Sweatshirt Face Down

Take the sweatshirt and lay it face down on a flat surface.

Step 2: No Bunched Fabric

The sweatshirt should stay flat and have no areas of bunched fabric.

Step 3: Fold Right Sleeve and Line It Up

Start with the right sleeve. Fold the sleeve across the sweatshirt. The top of the sleeve should be even with the edge of the sweatshirt's hood, and should make a straight line on the side.

Step 4: Make Sure It Is Even

Fold the sleeve back on top of the first fold, so they are layered. The sweatshirt body and the sleeve should be even.

Step 5: Fold Left Sleeve and Line It Up

Fold the left sleeve across the body of the sweatshirt. The top of the sleeve should be even with the edge of the sweatshirt's hood and should make a straight line.

Step 6: Make Sure It Is Even

Fold the sleeve back on top of the first fold, so they are layered. The sweatshirt body and the sleeve should be even.

Step 7: Fold the Body

With the sleeves even with both edges of the sweatshirt body, take the bottom of the sweatshirt and fold it up one third.

Step 8: Fold Up Body Continued

Fold up the sweatshirt up one more third, ending just below the stitching of the hood.

Step 9: Flip Hood Back

Flip hood over the folded sweatshirt.

Step 10: Flip Hood Inside Out

Flip the hood inside out and fold it over the folded sweatshirt to keep it in place.
