    Great! Thank you.

    I learned this a few years ago in an email from a Japanese show. use it all the time and amaze everyone that sees it. Glad to see someone share this trick.

    WOW! Its like poetry in motion!! Now I'm going to fight my wife over who gets to fold my T shirts.

    This would be better suited for a video than a full-out Instructable, given that not many directions are needed. Still, I like the method.

    Isn't this elsewhere on Instrucables, billed as the Japanese way of shirt-folding? I've been meaning to try it out anyway....
