Intro: Fast Way to Fold a T-shirt

This is a simple tutorial to teach you how to fold your T-shirt
For this tutorial, you will need
a T-shirt




Step 1: Pinches

Step 1, find pinch 1 by drawing an imagination line across the middle of the t-shirt, and find pinch 2 by directly moving up the T-shirt and pinch the T-shirt on the shoulder seam, pinch 2 should be directly above pinch 1.  Pinch 3 is on the same line at the bottom of the shirt.



Step 2: The Folding

Step 2, bring pinch 2 to pinch 3

Step 3: The Flick

Step 3, the flick, bring pinch 1 up and away, and you can put down the t-shirt now

Step 4: Finish

Step 4, simply create a fold on the T-shirt that is symmetrical with the line between your original two pinches, and you are finished!!

You may want to point out that you didn't come up with this method. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0MJRGg-pdA8&feature=related

are you for real!?!? Internet is about sharing and spreading ideal, tips and trick. Almost all articles online are from people that learned something somewhere and are nice enough to share and help others like this nice person and this is the best comment you can come up with. Maybe i missed it but i didnt see claim anywhere that they invented it. There are actually few different methods to do this. Rather then saying "thanks for sharing and helping those it helps" , like myself, that pathetic excuse for a comment is what you came up with. I always wondered what goes in head of people like you. Are you just plain bitter pathetic excuse for a human being or maybe jealous you got nothing to contribute yourself.

There are two types of personalities in one aspect of thing...

1. Those that are motivated by other's ideas, success, encourangment, their excellence, etc. These people feed on these things in a way to better them selves and give back.

2. People that are bitter at life and in general lazy with limited knowledge and no ambition. Rather then seeking out way to improve themselves and grow in all aspects, they chose to try to bring others down to their level...a low level because its much easier then the other option.

Take a guess where you fit in. Just plain pathetic.

Cool, a southpaw folding shirts in the Japanese method!

I have been using this trick for many years after someone showed me the video that floated around the web for a while.

What is nice about this, is the creases in the shirt fall in such a way as to dissapear once unfolded and placed over your torso.

This is not always the case with the more common "fold the shoulders back and fold the rectangle into a square".

My favorite method of all you ask?

Take your your T shirt short or long sleeved, place it on a coat hanger and hang them up in your closet.

No creases, no arms flopping out of a folded up shirt :-D

shouldn't the setup/flattening of the tshirt be included in the procedure?  'cause tshirts don't start out that way.  not to nit pick...

I don't know about the US, but in Spain most shops fold their Tshirts without the gadget!

Well, while it is a faster way of folding a shirt so that the collar is centered, it really isn't any faster for my purposes. I mean, this is neat and all, but my kids just dig through their drawers and tip everything over anyway, so I just fold the shirts in half twice. I chafe at the time it takes to get the shirt out of the basket and straight enough to do even that, and this lil trick requires you to get it laid flat as well. Not a time saver here.

Mind you, if there's a chance that this could work for long-sleeve shirts, you'd have my attention. Those are a pain.
